Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human breast cancer tissue reacted with BNIP3 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB1863) , which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
Freshly isolated mouse hepatocytes plated on coverslips (2 X105 cells / 22-mm glass coverslip) were cultured under normoxic conditions for 6 hr. The cells were then fixed in 2% paraformaldehyde in PBS for 1 hr, and processed for confocal immunofluorescence (red: F-actin, blue: ATP-synthase, green: BNIP3). Fluorescence labeling of BNIP3 accomplished with BNIP3 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB1863). Data courtesy of Ruben Zamora, University of Pittsburgh.
This gene is a member of the BCL2/adenovirus E1B 19 kd-interacting protein (BNIP) family. It interacts with the E1B 19 kDa protein which is responsible for the protection of virally-induced cell death, as well as E1B 19 kDa-like sequences of BCL2, also an apoptotic protector. This gene contains a BH3 domain and a transmembrane domain, which have been associated with pro-apoptotic function. The dimeric mitochondrial protein encoded by this gene is known to induce apoptosis, even in the presence of BCL2. [provided by RefSeq
