Product NameRabbit anti-Human Bax IgG fraction polyclonal antibody
CategoryGrowth Factors, Cytokines, Receptors and their Antibodies
SubcategoryPolyclonal Antibodies (Cancer/Apoptosis)
DescriptionIgG fraction from rabbit polyclonal antibody obtained by immunizing rabbits with a synthetic peptide (MDGSGEQPRGGGPTSSEQIMK) corresponding to amino acids 1 - 21 of human Bax. The IgG fraction was purified using Protein G-Sepharose.
Mol WeightN/A
StorageStore at -20ºC.
StabilityStable at least one year at -20ºC. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
Biological ActivityThis polyclonal antibody reacts in ELISA using the immunizing peptide and it recognizes two protein bands corresponding to 20 (monomer) and 40 kDa (dimer) of Bcl-2 in Western Blot of HL-60 cell lysate. Bax belongs to Bcl-2 protein family and accelerates the apoptosis by binding to the repressor Bcl-2. It can form oligomers and targets mitochondrial membrane inducing an increase in the membrane permeability which leads to the release of cytochrome c from mitochondria and the activation of the caspase pathway. Bax is considered a tumor suppressor.
FormulationSolution at 1 mg/mL in PBS. Some of the liquid in the vial could have evaporated with changes in the final volume. However, the mass of the protein is still inside the vial.
