Detection of Rat BOK by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of E. coli transfected with an inducible expression vector containing rat BOK. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.8 µg/mL Rabbit Anti-Rat BOK Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF825) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band for BOK was detected at approximately ??? kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 4.

BOK (Bcl-2-related Ovarian Killer) is a 23-kDa pro-apoptotic member of the Bcl-2 family of proteins. BOK has three conserved Bcl-2 homology domains (BH1, 2, and 3) and a C-terminal transmembrane domain, but does not contain the anti-apoptotic BH4 domain. BOK interacts strongly with some anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 proteins (Mcl-1, BHRF1, and A1) and not at all with pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 proteins. The tissue distribution of BOK is restricted to reproductive tissues and it is highly expressed in ovary, testis, and uterus.
