Synthetic peptide corresponding to resides surrounding a.a. 44 of Human Bcl-2
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
Form of antibody:
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry
Target of this antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) protein A purified from (low FBS containing) tissue culture supernatant. Purity was >95%. The antibody was formulated in PBS containing 1 mg/ml BSA and 1.5 mM sodium azide and 50% glycerol
Western blot (1-4 µg/ml), Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry, and Flow cytometry. However the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Recognize the 26 kDa human Bcl-2
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
Clonality of antibody:
Bcl-2 (B-cell leukemia/lymphoma 2) gene was discovered by walking the chromosomal breakpoints t(14;18). This gene consists of two exons and several transcripts that encode two different protein products, Bcl-2α and Bcl-2β. Both proteins are approximately 26-30 kDa and differ at their C-terminal region. Bcl-2 suppresses apoptosis (programmed cell death) and this property appears to be modulated by homodimerization or association with Bax and Bad, two cell death promoters
Concentration of antibody:
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by biovision antibodies-kits-proteins they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
