BID is a 195 amino acid member of the Bcl-2 family of proteins that regulates outer mitochondrial membrane permeability (1). BID is a pro-apoptotic member that causes cytochrome c to be released from the mitochondria intermembrane space into the cytosol. In healthy cells BID is cytosolic. In response to Fas ligand or TNF, BID is cleaved by caspase-8 and it then relocates to the mitochondria outer membrane (2, 3). Cleavage of BID by caspase-8 generates a new N-terminal that contains a terminal glycine. It appears that the glycine is myristoylated and myristoylation serves to target BID to the mitochondria (4). BID may then interact with another pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 family member Bak (5). Interaction of BID with Bak causes altered mitochondrial membrane permeability. A 9‑13 amino acid stretch called the BH3 region (Bcl-2 homology region) appears to mediate the BID interaction with other Bcl-2 family members. BID is neutralized by binding to the anti-apoptotic member Bcl-xL.

CommentsPublished: See PMID 21048194Independent review from antibodyresource.comSample loading buffer was added and equal amounts of protein (50 ?g/sample) were separated on 4%–12% or 12% polyacrylamide Criterion XT-gels in MOPS buffer (Bio-Rad) at 150 V. Subsequently, proteins were transferred onto a PVDF-membrane. Membranes were blocked for 30 min in 5% skimmed milk powder containing Tris-buffered saline and 0.1% Tween-20 (TBS-T) and probed for 1 h with primary antibody in 5% skimmed milk powder in TBS-T. Following three 10 min washes in TBS-T, membranes were incubated with species-specific HRP-conjugated antibody for 1 h in 5% skimmed milk powder containing TBS-T. Again following a threefold wash in TBS-T or TBS (last wash step), bands were visualized on ECL Hyperfilms (Amersham Biosciences, Buckinghamshire, UK) using an enhanced chemiluminiscence kit (PerkinElmer Life Sciences, Boston, MA).
