- CITATIONS: 1
|Calculated MW||2267.6 Da|
|Other Names||Apoptosis regulator BAX, BAX|
|Format||Peptides are lyophilized in a solid powder format. Peptides can be reconstituted in solution using the appropriate buffer as needed.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Bax BH3 peptide (55 - 74), wild type is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Accelerates programmed cell death by binding to, and antagonizing the apoptosis repressor BCL2 or its adenovirus homolog E1B 19k protein. Under stress conditions, undergoes a conformation change that causes translocation to the mitochondrion membrane, leading to the release of cytochrome c that then triggers apoptosis. Promotes activation of CASP3, and thereby apoptosis. BAX deficiency leads to lymphoid hyperplasia and male sterility, because of the cessation of sperm production (By similarity). Interacts (via a C-terminal 33 residues) with NOL3 (via CARD domain); inhibits BAX activation and translocation and consequently cytochrome c release from mitochondria (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Isoform Alpha: Mitochondrion membrane; Single-pass membrane protein Cytoplasm. Note=Colocalizes with 14-3-3 proteins in the cytoplasm. Under stress conditions, undergoes a conformation change that causes release from JNK-phosphorylated 14-3-3 proteins and translocation to the mitochondrion membrane (By similarity) Isoform Gamma: Cytoplasm.|
