|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Calculated MW||21541 Da|
|Antigen Region||152-187 aa|
|Other Names||BCL2/adenovirus E1B 19 kDa protein-interacting protein 3, BNIP3, NIP3|
|Target/Specificity||This BNIP3 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 152-187 amino acids from human BNIP3.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||BNIP3 Antibody (BH3 Domain Specific) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Apoptosis-inducing protein that can overcome BCL2 suppression. May play a role in repartitioning calcium between the two major intracellular calcium stores in association with BCL2. Involved in mitochondrial quality control via its interaction with SPATA18/MIEAP: in response to mitochondrial damage, participates to mitochondrial protein catabolic process (also named MALM) leading to the degradation of damaged proteins inside mitochondria. The physical interaction of SPATA18/MIEAP, BNIP3 and BNIP3L/NIX at the mitochondrial outer membrane regulates the opening of a pore in the mitochondrial double membrane in order to mediate the translocation of lysosomal proteins from the cytoplasm to the mitochondrial matrix. Plays an important role in the calprotectin (S100A8/A9)-induced cell death pathway.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion. Mitochondrion outer membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Note=Coexpression with the EIB 19- kDa protein results in a shift in NIP3 localization pattern to the nuclear envelope. Colocalizes with ACAA2 in the mitochondria Colocalizes with SPATA18 at the mitochondrion outer membrane|

NIP3 is a member of the BCL2/adenovirus E1B 19 kd-interacting protein (BNIP) family. It interacts with the E1B 19 kDa protein which is responsible for the protection of virally-induced cell death, as well as E1B 19 kDa-like sequences of BCL2, also an apoptotic protector. NIP3 contains a BH3 domain and a transmembrane domain, which have been associated with pro-apoptotic function. The dimeric mitochondrial protein is known to induce apoptosis, even in the presence of BCL2.
