Apoptosis is a critical aspect of cellular function and is implicated in a broad range of human diseases, from cancer to neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases. Intrafamilial Bcl-2 protein contacts are thought to regulate key aspects of apoptosis. The corruption of apoptotic instructions is associated with a large subset of human diseases, ranging from cancer and cardiovascular disease to neurodegenerative diseases, and name just a few. Understanding regulation of apoptosis is necessary to constructing a strategy for pharmaceutical intervention. The BH3 domain of Bcl-2 family members has been identified as key to the Bcl-2 regulatory function, although details are not fully elucidated.
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, ELISA, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 3 months at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
