The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 22 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 22 kDa).
FunctionInduces apoptosis. Isoform BimL is more potent than isoform BimEL. Isoform Bim-alpha1, isoform Bim-alpha2 and isoform Bim-alpha3 induce apoptosis, although less potent than the isoforms BimEL, BimL and BimS. Isoform Bim-gamma induces apoptosis.
Tissue specificityIsoform BimEL, isoform BimL and isoform BimS are the predominant isoforms and are ubiquitously expressed with a tissue-specific variation. Isoform Bim-gamma is most abundantly expressed in small intestine and colon, and in lower levels in spleen, prostate, testis, heart, liver and kidney.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the Bcl-2 family.
DomainThe BH3 motif is required for Bcl-2 binding and cytotoxicity.
Cellular localizationMitochondrion and Endomembrane system. Associated with intracytoplasmic membranes.
