Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Bax inhibitor-1, BI-1, Bax, Bax inhibitor
BI-1 (Bax inhibitor-1), also designated TEGT for testis enhanced gene transcript, was identified as an additional inhibitor of apoptosis. BI-1 interacts with Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL, but not with Bax or Bak, to inhibit Bax induced apoptosis.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues around amino acids 210 of human BI-1
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-BI-1 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody detects BI-1 in samples from mouse, rat and human origins.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
