Members in the Bcl-2 family are critical regulators of apoptosis by either inhibiting or promoting cell death. Bcl-2 homology 3 (BH3) domain is a potent death domain. BH3 domain containing pro-apoptotic proteins, including Bad, Bax, Bid, Bik, Hrk, Nip3, and Bim, form a growingsubclass of the Bcl-2 family. A novel BH3 domaincontaining protein was recently identified and designated Bnip3L, Bnip3a, and Nix (for Nip3-like protein X) (Matsushima, M. et al.; Yasuda, M. et al.; Chen, G, et al.).Bnip3L/Bnip3a/Nix is a homolog of the E1B 19K/Bcl-2 binding and pro-apoptotic protein Bnip3. Over expression of Bnip3L induces apoptosis (Yasuda, M. et al.; Chen, G, et al.). Bnip3L interacts withand overcomes suppresses by Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL. Bnip3Lis localized in mitochondria. The messenger RNA of Bnip3L is ubiquitously expressed in human tissues (Matsushima, M. et al.; Yasuda, M. et al.). Bnip3L and Bnip3 form a new subfamily of the pro-apoptotic mitochondrial proteins.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab8399 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa.Can be blocked with BNIP3L peptide (ab8431). To reduce possible background load less sample and or use more diluted antibody.|
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration. See Abreview.|
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml.|
