Detection of Mouse Bag-1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of CTLL‑2 mouse cytotoxic T cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.6 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Mouse Bag-1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF815) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). A specific band was detected for Bag-1 at approximately 32 and 50 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 6.
Immunoprecipitation of Mouse Bag‑1. Bag‑1 was immunoprecipitated from lysates (3 x 106 cells) of CTLL‑2 mouse cytotoxic T cell line and A431 human epithelial carcinoma cell line following incubation with 5 µg Goat Anti-Mouse Bag‑1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF815) for 1 hour at 4 ºC. Bag‑1-antibody complexes were absorbed using Protein G (Sigma). Immunoprecipitated Bag‑1 was detected by Western blot using 5 µg/mL Mouse Bag‑1 Antigen Affinity‑purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF815). The leftmost lane represents a control experiment where the antibody was incubated with no cell lysate. View our recommended buffer recipes for immunoprecipitation.

Bag-1 (Bcl-2-associated Athanogene 1) is a 31-kDa protein with an apparent molecular mass of 46 kDa that can bind to Bcl-2 and enhance its anti-apoptotic effect, resulting in increased protection from cell death induced by apoptotic stimuli. Bag-1 shares no significant homology with Bcl-2 or other Bcl-2 family proteins. The C-terminal region of Bag-1 binds the PDGF and HGF Receptor, and enhances growth factor-mediated protection from apoptosis. This represents a link between growth factor receptors and anti-apoptotic mechanisms.
