|BIML in Human Spleen. BIML was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human spleen using Goat Anti-Human BIML Long (BIM L) Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1325) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to the cytoplasm and perinuclear area in monocytes. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.|
BIML (also known as Bod) is one of several splice variants of BIM, a pro-apoptotic protein belonging to the BH3 domain-only subgroup of Bcl-2 family members. BIML is thought to promote apoptosis by binding and inhibiting the activity of anti-apoptoticBcl-2 family members, thereby inducing the release of cytochrome c from mitochondria. BIML is normally sequestered in an inactive conformation from anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 family members through binding to the microtubule-associated dynein motor complex.Certain apoptotic stimuli release BIML from microtubules to neutralize anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 family members, allowing for the initiation of apoptosis.
