Bcl-2 (Phospho-Thr56) Polyclonal Antibody
Catalog No.: 43064
Format: 100ul at 1.0mg/ml in PBS (without Mg2+ and Ca2+), pH 7.4, 150mM NaCl, 0.02% sodium azide and 50% glycerol. Affinity-purified on phosphopeptide; non-phosphopeptide- reactive antibodies were removed by chromatography on non-phosphorylated peptide.
Bcl-2 protein suppresses apoptosis in a variety of cellular systems including factor-dependent lymphohematopoietic and neural cells. It regulates cell death by controlling the mitochondrial membrane permeability and appears to function in a feedback loop system with caspase. Bcl-2 inhibits caspase acativity either by preventing release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria and/or by binding to apoptosis-activating factor (Apaf-1). The predicted molecular weight of Bcl-2 is ~26kDa.
Antigen: Peptide sequence that includes phosphorylation site of threonine 56 (G-H-T(p)-P-H) derived from human Bcl-2 and conjugated to KLH.
Host Species: Rabbit
Specificity: This antibody detects endogenous human Bcl-2 only when phosphorylated at threonine 56.
Accession no.: P10415, NP_000624.2
Immunohistochemistry: use at dilution of 1:50-1:100.
These are recommended working dilutions. Enduser should determine optimal dilutions for their application.
Dilute in PBS or medium that is identical to that used in the assay system.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
This antibody is stable for at least one (1) year at -20°C. Can be stored at 4°C for short-term.
For in vitro investigational use only. Not intended for therapeutic or diagnostic applications.
