BCL2 (B-cell lymphoma 2) consists of pro- and antiapoptotic functions. It belongs to BCL2 family of proteins. It is mapped to human chromosome 18q21.3.
synthetic peptide corresponding to residues 41-54 of the Bcl-2 protein, conjugated to thyroglobulin.
Monoclonal Anti-Bcl-2 antibody produced in mouse is suitable for western blotting at a concentration of 1:1,000 by using human HeLa cell extract. It is also suitable for immunohistochemistry by using formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections or frozen sections. Further, the antibody may be used for the localization of Bcl-2, by implementing numerous assays like- microarray, electron microscopy and immunoprecipitation.
Anti-BCL2 (Ab-56) antibody has been used in western blotting and immunocytochemistry.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.

Protooncogene BCL2 encodes a 26 kD integral outer mitochondrial membrane protein expressed in sub-cellular components such as the mitochondria and nucleus. While mitochondrial BCL2 inhibits apoptosis, BCL2 present in the nucleus may activate cell death. It may also regulate autophagy during starvation. Additionally, BCL2 facilitates the survival of central and peripheral neurons grown in culture in the absence of neurotrophic factors.
BCL2 (B-cell lymphoma 2) plays an important role in the growth and progression of cancer. Overexpression of BCL2 (B-cell lymphoma 2) results in poor clinical predictions in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Bcl2 is highly essential for the survival of kidney and melanocyte stem cells and mature lymphocytes. It may control Bcl2 multiple initiator caspases.
