|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_619527, 20336315|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 22 kDa |
Observed: 24 kDa
|Application Notes||Bim EL antibody can be used for detection of Bim EL by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||BCL2L11; Bim EL antibody is human and mouse reactive. Multiple isoforms of Bim are known to exist; this antibody only detects the Bim EL isoform.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Bim EL antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||Bim EL 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 EL 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. Bim, also known as Bcl-2-like protein 11, is a pro-apoptotic member of this family and interacts with diverse members in the pro-survival Bcl-2 sub-family including Bcl-2, Bcl-xL and Bcl-w. Multiple isoforms of Bim are known to exist, with Bim EL being the longest isoform (1,2).
