Product Description

The Pro-Survival Bcl-2 Family Antibody Sampler Kit provides an economical means to examine several members of the Bcl-2 family. The kit contains enough primary and secondary antibodies to perform two western blot experiments.

Specificity / Sensitivity

Each antibody in the Pro-Survival Bcl-2 Family Antibody Sampler Kit recognizes only its specific target. The antibodies do not cross-react with other Bcl-2 family members. Phospho-Bcl-2 (Ser70) (5H2) Rabbit mAb detects endogenous levels of human Bcl-2 only when phosphorylated at Ser70. Phospho-Bcl-2 (Thr56) Antibody (Human Specific) detects endogenous levels of human Bcl-2 only when phosphorylated at Thr56.

Source / Purification

Total Mcl-1, Bcl-xL, and Bcl-2 monoclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with synthetic peptides corresponding to residues surrounding Leu210 of human Mcl-1, Asp61 of human Bcl-xL, and Gly47 of human Bcl-2. Phospho-Bcl-2 (Ser70) (5H2) Rabbit mAb is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser70 of human Bcl-2. Phospho-Bcl-2 (Thr56) Antibody (Human Specific) is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding Thr56 of human Bcl-2. Polyclonal antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.

Background

The Bcl-2 family consists of a number of evolutionarily conserved proteins containing Bcl-2 homology domains (BH) that regulate apoptosis through control of mitochondrial membrane permeability and release of cytochrome c (1-3). Four BH domains have been identified (BH1-4) that mediate protein interactions. The family can be separated into three groups based upon function and sequence homology: pro-survival members include Bcl-2, Bcl-xL, Mcl-1, A1 and Bcl-w; pro-apoptotic proteins include Bax, Bak and Bok; and "BH3 only" proteins Bad, Bik, Bid, Puma, Bim, Bmf, Noxa and Hrk. Interactions between death-promoting and death-suppressing Bcl-2 family members has led to a rheostat model in which the ratio of pro-apoptotic and anti-apoptotic proteins controls cell fate (4). Thus, pro-survival members exert their behavior by binding to and antagonizing death-promoting members. In general, the "BH3-only members" can bind to and antagonize the pro-survival proteins leading to increased apoptosis (5). While some redundancy of this system likely exists, tissue specificity, transcriptional and post-translational regulation of many of these family members can account for distinct physiological roles.

Several phosphorylation sites have been identified within Bcl-2 including Thr56, Ser70, Thr74 and Ser87 (6). These phosphorylation sites may be targets of the ASK1/MKK7/JNK1 pathway, and phosphorylation of Bcl-2 may be a marker for mitotic events (7,8). Mutation of Bcl-2 at Thr56 or Ser87 inhibits its anti-apoptotic activity during glucocorticoid-induced apoptosis of T lymphocytes (9). Interleukin 3 and JNK-induced Bcl-2 phosphorylation at Ser70 may be required for its enhanced antiapoptotic functions (10).
