Detects mouse BID in Western blots. Detects full-length mouse BID and the 15 kDa carboxyl-terminal fragment (tBID) generated by cleavage with Caspase-8. The antibody also detects human BID. However, in Western blots of recombinant human and mouse BID, the antibody is most sensitive for mouse BID.
Monoclonal Rat IgG1 Clone # 91508
Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
E. coli-derived recombinant mouse BID Met1-Asp195 Accession # P70444
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Detection of Mouse BID by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line untreated (-) or treated (+) with 1 μM staurosporin for 3 hours. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL Rat Anti-Mouse BID Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB860) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). Specific bands for BID were detected at approximately 12 kDa and 20 kDa (as indicated). For additional reference, a longer exposure is also shown (right panel). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 4.

BID is a member of the Bcl-2 family of proteins that regulates outer
mitochondrial membrane permeability. BID is cytosolic in healthy cells
but upon delivery of an apoptotic signal, BID is cleaved by Caspase-8.
The cleaved form is translocated to the mitochondria outer membrane
where it binds to BAK and the resulting complex causes altered
mitochondrial membrane permeability.
