Protein Information
Name BAG1
Synonyms HAP
Function Inhibits the chaperone activity of HSP70/HSC70 by promoting substrate release. Inhibits the pro-apoptotic function of PPP1R15A, and has anti-apoptotic activity. Markedly increases the anti-cell death function of BCL2 induced by various stimuli.
Cellular Location Isoform 1: Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Isoform 1 localizes predominantly to the nucleus Isoform 4: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Isoform 4 localizes predominantly to the cytoplasm. The cellular background in which it is expressed can influence whether it resides primarily in the cytoplasm or is also found in the nucleus. In the presence of BCL2, localizes to intracellular membranes (what appears to be the nuclear envelope and perinuclear membranes) as well as punctate cytosolic structures suggestive of mitochondria
Tissue Location Isoform 4 is the most abundantly expressed isoform. It is ubiquitously expressed throughout most tissues, except the liver, colon, breast and uterine myometrium. Isoform 1 is expressed in the ovary and testis. Isoform 4 is expressed in several types of tumor cell lines, and at consistently high levels in leukemia and lymphoma cell lines. Isoform 1 is expressed in the prostate, breast and leukemia cell lines. Isoform 3 is the least abundant isoform in tumor cell lines (at protein level)

BAG-1 Antibody: Bcl-2-associated athanogene 1 (BAG-1) was first identified as an anti-apoptotic bcl-2-binding protein. Later it was found to bind the molecular chaperones Hsp70 and Hsc70 through its carboxy-terminal sequence (termed the Bag domain), resulting in the inhibition of the refolding activity of these chaperones. It is thought that by binding and inhibiting these molecular chaperones, BAG-1is able to modulate the expression level of proteins requiring chaperones to fold correctly. One such group of proteins that are affected is glucocorticoid receptors. Other reports have suggested that the level of BAG-1 expression correlates with the aggressiveness of various cancers. Multiple isoforms of BAG-1 are known to exist.
