|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||O43521, 18202042|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||23 kDa|
|Application Notes||Bim antibody can be used for detection of Bim by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. A 23 kDa band can be detected. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 20 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||Bim Antibody: BAM, BIM, BOD, Bcl-2-like protein 11, Bcl2-interacting mediator of cell death, Bcl2-L-11, BCL2-like 11 (apoptosis facilitator)|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Bim antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||Bim Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Induces apoptosis and anoikis. Isoform BimL is more potent than isoform BimEL. Isoform Bim-alpha1, isoform Bim-alpha2 and isoform Bim-alpha3 induce apoptosis, although less potent than isoform BimEL, isoform BimL and isoform BimS. Isoform Bim-gamma induces apoptosis. Isoform Bim-alpha3 induces apoptosis possibly through a caspase-mediated pathway. Isoform BimAC and isoform BimABC lack the ability to induce apoptosis.|
|Cellular Location||Endomembrane system; Peripheral membrane protein. Note=Associated with intracytoplasmic membranes. Isoform BimL: Mitochondrion. Isoform Bim-alpha1: Mitochondrion.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform BimEL, isoform BimL and isoform BimS are the predominant isoforms and are widely expressed with tissue- specific variation. Isoform Bim-gamma is most abundantly expressed in small intestine and colon, and in lower levels in spleen, prostate, testis, heart, liver and kidney|

Bim Antibody: Members in the Bcl-2 family are critical regulators of apoptosis by either inhibiting or promoting cell death. Bcl-2 homology 3 (BH3) domain is a potent death domain. BH3 domain containing pro-apoptotic proteins, including Bad, Bax, Bid, Bik, and Hrk, form a growing subclass of the Bcl-2 family. A novel BH3 domain containing protein was recently identified and designated Bim or BOD in human, mouse and rat. Bim/BOD interacts with diverse members in the pro-survival Bcl-2 sub-family including Bcl-2, Bcl-xL and Bcl-w. Bim/BOD induces apoptosis. The messenger RNA of Bim is ubiquitously expressed in multiple tissues and cell lines.
