BIRC6 Antibody (N-term) Blocking Peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession Q9NR09
Other Accession NP_057336
Additional Information
Gene ID 57448
Other Names Baculoviral IAP repeat-containing protein 6, 632-, BIR repeat-containing ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme, BRUCE, Ubiquitin-conjugating BIR domain enzyme apollon, APOLLON, BIRC6, KIAA1289
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6127a was selected from the N-term region of human BIRC6 . 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.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name BIRC6
Synonyms KIAA1289
Function Anti-apoptotic protein which can regulate cell death by controlling caspases and by acting as an E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase. Has an unusual ubiquitin conjugation system in that it could combine in a single polypeptide, ubiquitin conjugating (E2) with ubiquitin ligase (E3) activity, forming a chimeric E2/E3 ubiquitin ligase. Its tragets include CASP9 and DIABLO/SMAC. Acts as an inhibitor of CASP3, CASP7 and CASP9. Important regulator for the final stages of cytokinesis. Crucial for normal vesicle targeting to the site of abscission, but also for the integrity of the midbody and the midbody ring, and its striking ubiquitin modification.
Cellular Location Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network membrane. Midbody. Endosome. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Note=Concentrates in a pericentriolar compartment in interphase, moves partially to spindle poles in metaphase, and finally localizes to the spindle midzone and the midbody in telophase and during cytokinesis
Tissue Location Expressed in brain cancer cells.

BIRC6 is a member of a family of proteins that inhibit apoptosis, likely through interference with activation of ICE-like proteases. BIRC6, which contains a single BIR domain and a ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme domain, is expressed in four of six brain cancers (gliomas), and one of five ovarian cancers in a variety of human cancer cell lines. Brain cancer cell lines that overexpress BIRC6 demonstrate multi-drug resistance BIRC6 may protect cancer cells from undergoing apoptosis and participate in tumorigenesis and drug resistance.
