Data Example

Immunohistochemistry Bcl‑w in Human Spleen. View Larger

Bcl‑w in Human Spleen. Bcl‑w was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human spleen using 3 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human/Mouse Bcl‑w Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF8241) 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 with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: Bcl-w

Bcl-w is a member of the Bcl-2 family of proteins that regulates outer mitochondrial membrane permeability (1, 2). Bcl-w is an anti-apoptotic member that prevents release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria intermembrane space into the cytosol. Bcl-w is required for normal sperm maturation (3, 4, 5). Natural Bcl-w contains a carboxyl-terminal mitochondria targeting sequence. Recombinant Bcl-w missing the mitochondrial targeting sequence maintains its ability to neutralize pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 family members. Neutralization by Bcl-w appears to be through binding the BH3 region of pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 family members. This activity does not require the mitochondrial targeting sequence.
