|Application Notes||Smac antibody can be used for detection of Smac/DIABLO by Western blot at 1 μg/mL. Smac antibody can also be used to detect Smac/DIABLO by immunohistochemistry at 5 μg/mL.|
|Other Names||Smac Antibody: Smac, AU040403, 0610041G12Rik, 1700006L01Rik, Smac, Diablo homolog, mitochondrial, Direct IAP-binding protein with low pI, diablo homolog (Drosophila)|
|Target/Specificity||Smac antibody was raised against a 15 amino acid peptide near the carboxy terminus of human Smac.|
The immunogen is located within the last 50 amino acids of Smac.
|Reconstitution & Storage||Smac 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||Smac Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Promotes apoptosis by activating caspases in the cytochrome c/Apaf-1/caspase-9 pathway. Acts by opposing the inhibitory activity of inhibitor of apoptosis proteins (IAP). Inhibits the activity of BIRC6/bruce by inhibiting its binding to caspases (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion. Note=Released into the cytosol when cells undergo apoptosis|
|Tissue Location||Highest expression found in heart, liver, kidney and testis.|

Smac Antibody: The inhibitor of apoptosis proteins (IAPs) regulate programmed cell death by inhibiting members of the caspase family of enzymes. A novel mammalian protein that binds to IAPs and neutralizes the inhibitory effect of IAPs on caspases was recently identified and designated Smac/DIABLO. Smac/DIABLO is a mitochondrial protein that is released along with cytochrome c during apoptosis and activates cytochrome c/Apaf-1/capase-9 pathway. Analysis of the structural basis of Smac/DIABLO reveals that the N-terminal amino acids are required for binding of Smac/DIABLO to IAPs and activation of caspases. Smac/DIABLO is expressed in a variety of human and mouse tissues.
