BMI‑1 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue. BMI‑1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast cancer tissue using Human BMI‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB33342) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the nuclei of epithelial cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.
BMI‑1 in Human Breast. BMI‑1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of normal human breast using Human BMI‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB33342) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

BMI-1 (B cell-specific Moloney-MLV integration site #1) is a 45 kDa protooncogene that is a class II member of the Polycomb group of genes. It participates in the formation of a large multimeric complex termed PRC1 that inhibits target gene transcription. Loss of BMI-1 function precludes stem cells from self-replicating. Human BMI-1 contains an N-terminal RING-finger domain (aa 17-56), an NLS (aa 81-95) and a C-terminal Pro/Ser-rich region (aa 251-326). Human BMI-1 is 99%, 97%, 99% and 99% aa identical to bovine, mouse, feline and canine BMI-1, respectively.
