Regulatory Status Legend
The N46-467 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to Bcl-2 (pS70), ie, the Bcl-2 protein phosphorylated at the Ser70 site. Bcl-2 is a ~ 26 kDa intracellular, integral membrane protein found primarily in the nuclear envelope, endoplasmic reticulum and outer mitochondrial membrane. Bcl-2 is encoded by the BCL2 (B-cell CLL/lymphoma 2) gene and is also known as Apoptosis regulator Bcl-2. Members of the Bcl-2 family play a major role in regulating the response of cells to apoptotic signals. Bcl-2 is one of the anti-apoptotic members of the Bcl-2 family. Bcl-2 knockout mice showed pronounced lymphoid apoptosis and other apoptosis related lesions later in life. Bcl-2 is a proto-oncogene because it blocks apoptosis and provides a selective survival advantage in many cell types and thus contributes to tumorigenesis. It has been implicated in several types of cancers, such as breast, prostate, and melanoma . Bcl-2 contains multiple phosphorylation sites including Thr56, Ser70, Thr74 and Ser87. Phosphorylation of Bcl-2 Ser70 has been shown to be a mitotic marker. Phosphorylation at this site regulates Bcl-2's anti-apoptotic activity and has recently been implicated in promoting autophagy. Several studies have shown that Bcl-2 phosphorylation is caused by c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK).
