Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

Members of the Bcl-2 protein family function to inhibit (Bcl-2, Bcl-XL, Mcl-1, A1) or promote (Bax, Bak, Bcl-Ls, Bad) apoptosis. Bid is a Bcl-2 family death agonist that heterodimerizes with either agonists (Bax) or antagonists (Bcl-2). Bid contains a centrally located BH3 domain that allows interaction with the BH1 domain of Bax and Bcl-2. However, Bid does not contain other domains commonly found in Bcl-2 family members, such as BH1, BH2, or BH4. In addition, Bid does not contain a C-terminal hydrophobic region that is characteristic of membrane-bound Bcl-2 family members. Singlet oxygen-induced apoptosis in human leukemia cells and Fas-induced apoptosis involve caspase-8 cleavage of Bid, which produces a 15 kDa C-terminal fragment and a 6.5 kDa N-terminal fragment. The C-terminal fragment translocates to the mitochondria and promotes the release of cytochrome C through a mechanism that might involve destabilization of the mitochondrial membrane. Thus, the proapoptotic role of Bid may involve mitochondrial membrane destabilization, as well as multiple protein-protein interactions.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
