ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.

Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Specificity

Clone 1C7 ZooMAb is a rabbit recombinant monoclonal antibody that specifically detects human Apoptosis regulator BAX. It targets an epitope within 20 amino acids from the N-terminal region.

Immunogen

KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to 20 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human Apoptosis regulator BAX.

Application

Anti-Bax, clone 1C7 ZooMAb, Cat. No. ZRB1103, is a recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody that specifically targets Bax and has been tested for use in Immunocytochemistry, Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), and Western Blotting.
Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot detected Bax in MCF7 cells treated with Etoposide (50 uM 6 h).

Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected Bax in human kidney and human lung cancer tissue sections.

Immunofluorescence Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected Bax in human kidney tissue sections.

Note: Actual optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user as specimens, and experimental conditions may vary with the end user.

Target description

Apoptosis regulator BAX (UniProt: Q07812; also known as Bcl-2-like protein 4, Bcl2-L-4, Bax) is encoded by the BAX (also known as BCL2L4) gene (Gene ID: 581) in human. Bax is single-pass membrane protein located on the mitochondrion outer membrane. It is a pro-apoptotic member of the Bcl-2 family of proteins. It displays extensive homology with Bcl-2 and is variably expressed in different cells, usually at very low concentrations in normal cells. Under normal conditions, Bax is largely cytosolic via constant retro-translocation from mitochondria to the cytosol that is helpful in avoiding its accumulation at the mitochondrial outer membrane. Upon induction of apoptosis, Bax undergoes a conformational change and translocates from cytosol to mitochondrial membrane. Bax forms homodimers as well as heterodimers with Bcl-2 through common binding motif and the ratio of Bax to Bcl-2 determines the survival or death of cells during apoptosis. Bax is reported to interact with, and increase the opening of, the mitochondrial voltage-dependent anion channel (VDAC), which leads to the loss in membrane potential and the release of cytochrome c. Bax contains 3 BH motifs (BH3: aa 59-73; BH1: aa 98-118; BH2: aa 150-165) and intact BH3 motif is shown to be required by BIK, BID, BAK, BAD and BAX for their pro-apoptotic activity and for their interaction with anti-apoptotic members of the Bcl-2 family. Eight different isoforms of Bax have been described that are produced by alternative splicing. It is pressed in a wide variety of tissues. Isoform alpha is expressed in spleen, breast, ovary, testis, colon and brain, and at low levels in skin and lung. Isoform Sigma is expressed in spleen, breast, ovary, testis, lung, colon, brain and at low levels in skin. Isoform Psi is found in glial tumors. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.

Physical form

Purified recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody IgG, lyophilized in PBS with 5% Trehalose. Normal appearance is a coarse or translucent resin. Contains no biocide or preservatives, such as azide, or any animal by-products. Larger pack sizes provided as multiples of 25 μL.

Reconstitution

300 μg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL. Please refer to guidance on suggested starting dilutions and/or titers per application and sample type.

Storage and Stability

Recommend storage of lyophilized product at 2-8°C; Before reconstitution, micro-centrifuge vials briefly to spin down material to bottom of the vial; Reconstitute each vial by adding 25 μL of filtered lab grade water or PBS; Reconstituted antibodies can be stored at 2-8°C, or -20°C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaws.

Sarcopenia is an age-associated disorder that results in skeletal muscle loss. Apoptosis and inflammation are the two major contributors to sarcopenia. Emerging evidence has shown that long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs) are implicated in the muscles of sarcopenic animal models. However
