|Other Names||Bcl-2-binding component 3, JFY-1, p53 up-regulated modulator of apoptosis, BBC3, PUMA|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1317a was selected from the region of human Puma BH3 Domain. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Essential mediator of p53/TP53-dependent and p53/TP53- independent apoptosis. Functions by promoting partial unfolding of BCL2L1 and dissociation of BCL2L1 from p53/TP53. Regulates ER stress-induced neuronal apoptosis.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion Note=Localized to the mitochondria in order to induce cytochrome c release|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed.|

PUMA is one of the pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 family members including Bax and Noxa, which are also transcriptional targets of p53. The PUMA gene encodes two BH3 domain-containing proteins termed PUMA-a and PUMA-b. PUMA proteins bind Bcl-2, localize to the mitochondria, and induce cytochrome c release and apoptosis in response to p53. PUMA may be a direct mediator of p53-induced apoptosis.
