|Application ||WB, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_065129, 10017|
|Calculated MW||21973 Da|
|Application Notes||Bcl-B antibody can be used for the detection of Bcl-B by Western blot at 1 - 2 μg/mL. Despite its predicted molecular weight, Bcl-B is often at higher molecular weights, presumably due to post-translational modifications. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 10 μg/mL.|
|Other Names||Bcl-B Antibody: Boo, Diva, BCL-B, BCLB, Bcl-2-like protein 10, Anti-apoptotic protein NrH, Bcl2-L-10, BCL2-like 10 (apoptosis facilitator)|
|Target/Specificity||Bcl-B antibody was raised against a 16 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the amino terminus of human Bcl-B.|
The immunogen is located within amino acids 90 - 140 of Bcl-B.
|Reconstitution & Storage||Bcl-B 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||Bcl-B Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Promotes cell survival. Suppresses apoptosis induced by BAX but not BAK.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion. Nucleus membrane|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed in adult tissues. Preferentially expressed in lung, liver and kidney|

Bcl-B Antibody: Members in the Bcl-2 family are critical regulators of apoptosis by either inhibiting or promoting cell death. Bcl-B is a recently discovered anti-apoptotic member of the Bcl-2. Unlike the mouse homolog (also known as Diva/Boo) which is predominantly expressed in ovary and testis, the human Bcl-B protein is widely expressed. Also, the human Bcl-B functions by binding to and suppressing the apoptotic activity of Bax, whereas the mouse homolog binds Bak and also interacts with the apoptosis protein Apaf-1.
