Phospho-Bcl-2 (Ser70) (5H2) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) #2834
Reactivity Key: H=Human
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Phospho-Bcl-2 (Ser70) (5H2) Rabbit mAb detects endogenous levels of Bcl-2 only when phosphorylated at Ser70. This antibody does not cross-react with nonphosphorylated Bcl-2 at endogenous levels or with other Bcl-2 family members.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser70 of human Bcl-2. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimal conditions with an F/P ratio of 2-6.
Flow cytometric analysis of Jurkat cells, untreated (upper) or paclitaxel-treated (lower), using Phospho-Bcl-2 (Ser70) (5H2) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) versus propidium iodide (DNA content). The blue inserts represent propidium iodide staining alone, showing cells in mitotic arrest in the paclitaxel-treated sample.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorescent dye and tested in-house for direct flow cytometric analysis of human cells.
Bcl-2 exerts a survival function in response to a wide range of apoptotic stimuli through inhibition of mitochondrial cytochrome c release (1). It has been implicated in modulating mitochondrial calcium homeostasis and proton flux (2). Several phosphorylation sites have been identified within Bcl-2 including Thr56, Ser70, Thr74, and Ser87 (3). It has been suggested that these phosphorylation sites may be targets of the ASK1/MKK7/JNK1 pathway and that phosphorylation of Bcl-2 may be a marker for mitotic events (4,5). Mutation of Bcl-2 at Thr56 or Ser87 inhibits its anti-apoptotic activity during glucocorticoid-induced apoptosis of T lymphocytes (6). Interleukin-3 and JNK-induced Bcl-2 phosphorylation at Ser70 may be required for its enhanced anti-apoptotic functions (7).
