Bax Antibody (6A7) Summary

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.

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)
