A synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminus of the Human Bcl-2.
This antibody was obtained from a rabbit immunized with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminus of the Human Bcl-2. The IgG fraction of the cell culture supernatant was purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.

Immunochemical staining of human BCL-2 in human tonsil with rabbit monoclonal antibody (1:500, formalin-fixed paraffin embedded sections).
Immunochemical staining of human BCL-2 in human sarcoma with rabbit monoclonal antibody (1:1000, formalin-fixed paraffin embedded sections).
Flow cytometric analysis of Human BCL2 expression on Jurkat cells. The cells were treated according to manufacturer’s manual (BD Pharmingen™ Cat. No. 554714), stained with purified anti-Human BCL2, then a FITC-conjugated second step antibody. The fluorescence histograms were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact cells.
BCL2 (B-cell leukemia/lymphoma 2, N-Histidine-tagged), also known as Bcl-2, belongs to the Bcl-2 family. Bcl-2 family proteins regulate and contribute to programmed cell death or apoptosis. It is a large protein family and all members contain at least one of four BH (bcl-2 homology) domains. Certain members such as Bcl-2, Bcl-xl and Mcl1 are anti-apoptotic, whilst others are pro-apoptotic. Most Bcl-2 family members contain a C-terminal transmembrane domain that functions to target these proteins to the outer mitochondrial and other intracellular membranes. It is expressed in a variety of tissues. BCL2 blocks the apoptotic death of some cells such as lymphocytes. It also regulates cell death by controlling the mitochondrial membrane permeability and inhibits caspase activity either by preventing the release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria and/or by binding to the apoptosis-activating factor. Constitutive expression of BCL2, such as in the case of translocation of BCL2 to Ig heavy chain locus, is thought to be the cause of follicular lymphoma. Two transcript variants, produced by alternate splicing, differ in their C-terminal ends.
