FunctionChaperone that plays a key role in various processes such as apoptosis, insertion of tail-anchored (TA) membrane proteins to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane and regulation of chromatin. Acts in part by regulating stability of proteins and their degradation by the proteasome. Participates in endoplasmic reticulum stress-induced apoptosis via its interaction with AIFM1/AIF by regulating AIFM1/AIF stability and preventing its degradation. Also required during spermatogenesis for synaptonemal complex assembly via its interaction with HSPA2, by inhibiting polyubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of HSPA2. Required for selective ubiquitin-mediated degradation of defective nascent chain polypeptides by the proteasome. In this context, may play a role in immuno-proteasomes to generate antigenic peptides via targeted degradation, thereby playing a role in antigen presentation in immune response. Key component of the BAG6/BAT3 complex, a cytosolic multiprotein complex involved in the post-translational delivery of tail-anchored (TA) membrane proteins to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane. TA membrane proteins, also named type II transmembrane proteins, contain a single C-terminal transmembrane region. BAG6/BAT3 acts by facilitating TA membrane proteins capture by ASNA1/TRC40: it is recruited to ribosomes synthesizing membrane proteins, interacts with the transmembrane region of newly released TA proteins and transfers them to ASNA1/TRC40 for targeting to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Also involved in DNA damage-induced apoptosis: following DNA damage, accumulates in the nucleus and forms a complex with p300/EP300, enhancing p300/EP300-mediated p53/TP53 acetylation leading to increase p53/TP53 transcriptional activity. When nuclear, may also act as a component of some chromatin regulator complex that regulates histone 3 'Lys-4' dimethylation (H3K4me2).
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 ubiquitin-like domain.
modificationsCleavage by caspase-3 releases a C-terminal peptide that plays a role in ricin-induced apoptosis.
In case of infection by L.pneumophila, ubiquitinated by the SCF(LegU1) complex.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytosol. Nucleus. The C-terminal fragment generated by caspase-3 is cytoplasmic.

ab137076 was shown to specifically react with BAT3/BAG-6 when BAT3/BAG-6 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and BAT3/BAG-6 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab137076 and ab8245 (Mouse anti GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1/1000 dilution and 1/10000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
Overlay histogram showing HAP1 wildtype (green line) and HAP1-BAG6 knockout cells (red line) stained with ab137076. The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min. The cells were then incubated in 1 x PBS/10% normal goat serum to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab137076, 0.1µg/ml) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H&L) presorbed (ab150081) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C.
A rabbit IgG isotype control antibody (ab172730) was used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody (HAP1 wildtype - black line, HAP1-BAG6 knockout - grey line). Unlabelled sample was also used as a control (this line is not shown for the purpose of simplicity).
Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 50 mW Blue laser (488nm) and 530/30 bandpass filter.
This antibody can also be used in HAP1 cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min) permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min under the same conditions.
