Clone 6A7
Isotype Mouse IgG1κ
Isotype Control Mouse IgG1-UNLB
Immunogen Bax peptide (a.a. 12-24) common to mouse, rat, and human
Specificity Mouse/Rat/Human/Monkey/Bovine Bax
Alternalte Name(s) Apoptosis regulator BAX, BCL2 associated X protein
Description Bax is a 20-22 kDa member of the Bcl-2 family of proteins involved in regulation of programmed cell death, or apoptosis. In murine thymocytes, it is expressed primarily as a cytoplasmic protein. Over-expression of Bax promotes apoptosis by formation of homodimers and through heterodimerization with Bcl-2, an inhibitor of apoptosis. The monoclonal antibody 6A7 reacts with human, mouse and rat Bax but does not bind the soluble cytosolic form of Bax; however, treatment of cells with non-ionic detergents exposes the epitope and allows binding of 6A7 to monomeric forms of Bax but not Bax complexed with either Bcl-2 or Bcl-xL.

  • Total cell lysates from NIH/3T3 cells were resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to PVDF membrane, and probed with Mouse Anti-Bax-UNLB (SB Cat. No. 10060-01). Proteins were visualized using Goat Anti-Mouse IgG, Human ads-HRP (SB Cat. No. 1030-05) secondary antibody and chemiluminescent detection.
