|Application ||WB, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||AAH27258, 20072668|
|Calculated MW||26266 Da|
|Application Notes||Bcl-2 antibody can be used for detection of Bcl-2 by Western blot at 1 to 4 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 2 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||Bcl-2 Antibody: Bcl-2, PPP1R50, Apoptosis regulator Bcl-2, B-cell CLL/lymphoma 2|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Bcl-2 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-2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Suppresses apoptosis in a variety of cell systems including factor-dependent lymphohematopoietic and neural cells. Regulates cell death by controlling the mitochondrial membrane permeability. Appears to function in a feedback loop system with caspases. Inhibits caspase activity either by preventing the release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria and/or by binding to the apoptosis-activating factor (APAF-1). May attenuate inflammation by impairing NLRP1-inflammasome activation, hence CASP1 activation and IL1B release (PubMed:17418785).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion outer membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Nucleus membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in a variety of tissues.|

Bcl-2 Antibody: Apoptosis plays a major role in normal organism development, tissue homeostasis, and removal of damaged cells. Disruption of this process has been implicated in a variety of diseases such as cancer. Bcl-2 is the founding member of a family of over 20 proteins that are critical regulators of apoptosis. These can be divided into two classes: those that inhibit apoptosis and those that promote cell death. Bcl-2 is an inner mitochondrial membrane protein that inhibits apoptosis. It is thought to act by interacting with pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 family members such as Bak and Bad. Overexpression of Bcl-2 has been linked to human cancers such as B-cell lymphoma and prostate cancer.
