  • FunctionThe major proteolytic product p15 BID allows the release of cytochrome c (By similarity). Isoform 1, isoform 2 and isoform 4 induce ICE-like proteases and apoptosis. Isoform 3 does not induce apoptosis. Counters the protective effect of Bcl-2.
  • Tissue specificityIsoform 2 and isoform 3 are expressed in spleen, bone marrow, cerebral and cerebellar cortex. Isoform 2 is expressed in spleen, pancreas and placenta (at protein level). Isoform 3 is expressed in lung, pancreas and spleen (at protein level). Isoform 4 is expressed in lung and pancreas (at protein level).
  • 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.
  • Post-translational
    TNF-alpha induces a caspase-mediated cleavage of p22 BID into a major p15 and minor p13 and p11 products.
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    p15 BID is ubiquitinated by ITCH; ubiquitination results in proteasome-dependent degradation.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm; Cytoplasm. Mitochondrion membrane. When uncleaved, it is predominantly cytoplasmic; Mitochondrion membrane. A significant proportion of isoform 2 localizes to mitochondria, it may be cleaved constitutively; Mitochondrion membrane. Associated with the mitochondrial membrane and Mitochondrion membrane. Translocates to mitochondria as an integral membrane protein.

Thank you for your enquiry. I have contacted the scientists that tested this antibody, and they stated that they only observe one single band at 22kDa with the antibody. I am sorry that we don't have any further insight as to what the 37kD band is ...

The originator of ab2561 was only able to inform me that the immunogen used was a synthetic peptide surrounding the cleavage site of mouse Bid.

Thank you for your enquiry. All the information we have on species cross reactivity is specified on the datasheet. To our knowledge, cross reactivity with rat has not yet been tested. Should you decide to go ahead and purchase this product, please let ...
