ICC Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml.


  • FunctionIn the presence of an appropriate stimulus, accelerates programmed cell death by binding to, and antagonizing the anti-apoptotic action of BCL2 or its adenovirus homolog E1B 19k protein. Low micromolar levels of zinc ions inhibit the promotion of apoptosis.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in a wide variety of tissues, with highest levels in the heart and skeletal muscle.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the Bcl-2 family.
  • DomainIntact BH3 motif is required by BIK, BID, BAK, BAD and BAX for their pro-apoptotic activity and for their interaction with anti-apoptotic members of the Bcl-2 family.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion membrane.
