Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab216985 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Sandwich ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration. Can be paired for Sandwich ELISA with Mouse monoclonal [2D2] to Bax (ab77566).
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use at an assay dependent concentration. Detects a band of approximately 21 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 21 kDa).
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt or ICC.
  • Target

    • Function
      Accelerates programmed cell death by binding to, and antagonizing the apoptosis repressor BCL2 or its adenovirus homolog E1B 19k protein. Under stress conditions, undergoes a conformation change that causes translocation to the mitochondrion membrane, leading to the release of cytochrome c that then triggers apoptosis. Promotes activation of CASP3, and thereby apoptosis.
    • Tissue specificity
      Expressed in a wide variety of tissues. Isoform Psi is found in glial tumors. Isoform Alpha is expressed in spleen, breast, ovary, testis, colon and brain, and at low levels in skin and lung. Isoform Sigma is expressed in spleen, breast, ovary, testis, lung, colon, brain and at low levels in skin. Isoform Alpha and isoform Sigma are expressed in pro-myelocytic leukemia, histiocytic lymphoma, Burkitt's lymphoma, T-cell lymphoma, lymphoblastic leukemia, breast adenocarcinoma, ovary adenocarcinoma, prostate carcinoma, prostate adenocarcinoma, lung carcinoma, epidermoid carcinoma, small cell lung carcinoma and colon adenocarcinoma cell lines.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the Bcl-2 family.
    • Domain
      Intact 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 localization
      Cytoplasm and Mitochondrion membrane. Cytoplasm. Colocalizes with 14-3-3 proteins in the cytoplasm. Under stress conditions, undergoes a conformation change that causes release from JNK-phosphorylated 14-3-3 proteins and translocation to the mitochondrion membrane.

      Purified ab32503 immunoprecipitating Bax in HeLa lysates. For western blotting, the primary antibody used was purified ab32503 at 1/1000 dilution. Ab131366 VeriBlot for IP (HRP) was used as the secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution. Capture antibody was used at a 1/20 dilution. Blocking and diluting buffer used was 5% NFDM/TBST.

      This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab32503).

    • Purified ab32503 staining Bax in Human lung carcinoma tissue section by immmunohistochemistry (IHC-P- Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraffin and heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using EDTA buffer (pH 9.0). Samples were incubated with primary antibody at 1:500 dilution. A goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) was used as a secondary antibody at 1:500 dilution. Cytoplasmic staining on human lung carcinoma.

      This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab32503).

    • IHC image of ab32503 staining Bax in rat kidney formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections, performed on a Leica Bond. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab32503, 1:250 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX. No primary antibody was used in the secondary only control (shown on the inset).
      For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

      This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab32503).

    • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded human lymph node using anti-Bax Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody (ab32503) at 1/250 dilution.

      This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab32503).
