General description

Bax is a 21kD integral organelle membrane protein that belongs to the Bcl-2 family and is expressed mainly in the mitochondria. The formation of bax homodimer accelerates apoptotic death whereas its heterodimerization with Bcl-2 or Bcl-xL can block apoptosis. Monoclonal anti-Bax antibody can be used to study the intracellular redistribution of Bax protein upon induction of apoptosis and its unique subcellular localization. This product can also be used in immunoblot analysis to estimate variations in the expression of specific proteins involved in apoptosis signalling. Mouse anti-Bax antibody reacts specifically with the epitope present within the amino acids 12-24 shared by bax from rat, mouse and human.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.


Monoclonal anti-Bax antibody can be used in immunocytochemistry (diluted 1: 1500) and western blot. It is also useful in microarray and immunoprecipitation.
