Rabbit Anti-Human B Cell Receptor-Associated Protein 29 (BAP29) recognizes an epitope near the C-terminus of Human, Mouse and Rat BAP29. This polyclonal antibody was purified using affinity chromatography.
Bap29 and the related protein Bap31 are endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and ER-vesicle membrane proteins and members of the B-cell receptor-associated protein family.1,2 These two proteins are highly homologous and can form homo- and heterodimers. Both Bap29 and Bap31 interact with membrane-bound immunoglobulins (mIgs), such as IgM and IgD, which with Ig-α/Ig-β heterodimers form B cell antigen receptors. Binding of the Bap29/Bap31 heterodimer correlates with the ER retention of non-Ig-α/Ig-β bound mIg complexes, suggesting that Bap29 and Bap31 may act as chaperones transmembrane regions of various proteins. Bap29 possesses multiple isoforms.
