Bit1 Antibody detects endogenous levels of total human Bit1 protein. It also detects overexpressed bovine Bit1 and may detect overexpressed levels of mouse and rat Bit1.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues within a central region of Bit1. Antibodies were purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Bit1 is a mitochondrial protein discovered as a regulator of anoikis, a process of apoptosis triggered by the loss of cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix (1,2). Like several other mitochondrial apoptotic regulators (Cytochrome c, Smac, HtrA2, AIF, EndoG), Bit1 is released into the cytoplasm during apoptosis (1,3). Cytoplasmic Bit1 associates with the Groucho family of transcriptional regulator AES (1,4). Interaction between Bit1 and AES promotes apoptosis, and this complex is suppressed by integrin mediated cell attachment.
