KLH-conjugated peptide corresponding to amino acids 12-24 located near the N-terminus common to human, mouse and rat Bax.
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.

Please note that this antibody is reactive to Mouse and derived from the same host, Mouse. Mouse-On-Mouse blocking reagent may be needed for IHC and ICC experiments to reduce high background signal. You can find these reagents under catalog numbers PK-2200-NB and MP-2400-NB. Please contact Technical Support if you have any questions.

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is a well-documented phenomenon in many cellular systems. (2) It plays a key role in tissue and organ development as well as in adult tissues during cell turnover. Apoptosis can be induced by a variety of internal and external stimuli including growth factor deprivation, cytokine treatment, antigen-receptor engagement, cell-cell interactions, irradiation and glucocorticoid treatment. (3) Bax is a member of the Bcl-2 family of apoptosis-associated proteins and, although it is similar in structure to Bcl-2, Bax exerts a pro-apoptotic rather than an anti-apoptotic effect on cells. Bax targets mitochondrial membranes, inducing mitochondrial damage and subsequent cell death in a caspase-independent manner, presumably via their ion channel-forming activity. These channels may then function to promote a mitochondrial permeability transition or to puncture the outer mitochondrial membrane. In addition to forming homodimer, Bax can heterodimerize with Bcl-2 and Bcl-XL proteins. This heterodimerization between pro- and anti-apoptotic family members may serve a titration function and act as a sensor for the programmed cell death program. (4-13) The monoclonal antibody 2D2 is specific for human Bax. (1)

Altered expression of BCL2 in cancer Similar to other cell processes, the balance between cell survival and cell death is an important equilibrium that when altered expression of genes can lead to a variety of disease. For example, too little cell death can promote cell overgrowth a... Read full blog post.
Caspase 9: The Suicidal Cell Whisperer Cell death via apoptosis is a key cellular function triggered by the cell death receptor family and their ligands which signal through downstream adaptor molecules and the caspase protease family.
