Immunogen
Purified Recombinant Human BID (Accession # AAC71064)
Formulation
This biotinylated antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco’s phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 – 7.3 containing 50 µg of bovine serum albumin per µg of antibody with no calcium, magnesium, or preservatives present.
State of Matter
Lyophilized
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized, biotinylated antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months from date of receipt. The reconstituted biotin conjugate can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted conjugate, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
Western Blotting: To detect Human BID this biotin conjugate can be used at a concentration of 1 µg/ml. This biotin conjugate should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:A106 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The sensitivity of detection may increase up to 50 fold when a chemiluminescent substrate is used.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.

Description

Specificity
Goat Anti-Human BID recognizes Human BID. This antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody was purified using a proprietary chromatographic technique that includes covalently immobilizing the antigen proteins or peptides to agarose based beads. This purification method enhances specificity, reduces nonspecific binding of extraneous IgG and provides you with the most reliable reagent available for your early discovery research.
Background
Bid is a member of the Bcl-2 family of proteins that regulates outer mitochondrial membrane permeability. 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. 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. Bid may then interact with another pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 family member Bak. 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-x.
