Polyclonal Rabbit Serum B IP IH IF
Beclin 1 is the first identified mammalian gene to mediate autophagy and also has tumor suppressor and antiviral function. Autophagy, a process of bulk protein degradation through an autophagosomic-lysosomal pathway, is important for differentiation, survival during nutrient deprivation, and normal growth control, and is often defective in tumor cells. Beclin 1 was originally isolated in a yeast two hybrid screen to identify Bcl-2-binding partners and maps to a tumor susceptibility locus on human chromosome 17q21 that is frequently monoallelically deleted in human breast, ovarian and prostate cancer. Beclin 1 encodes an evolutionarily conserved 60kD coiled coil protein that is expressed in human muscle, epithelial cells and neurons. In gene transfer studies, beclin 1 promotes nutrient deprivation-induced autophagy, inhibits mammary tumorigenesis, and inhibits viral replication. Expression of the Beclin 1 protein is frequently decreased in malignant breast epithelial cells. Based upon these observations, it is speculated that beclin 1 may work through induction of autophagy to negatively regulate tumorigenesis and to control viral infections. Beclin 1 may also play a role in other biological processes in which autophagy is important such as cell differentiation and nutritional stress responses.

Concentration~1mg/ml
FormTBS containing 5 mg/ml BSA as a stabilizer.
PuritySerum
ImmunogenRaised against an internal synthetic peptide to human Beclin 1, containing residues within 1-100. This sequence has 94% identity with the mouse sequence and 88% identity with the rat sequence.
SpecificityThis antibody is specific to human Beclin 1. Species Crossreactivity: This antibody can be used for detection of Beclin 1 in human samples. Preliminary results suggest that this antibody may crossreact with mouse protein, as well. Other species have not been tested.
Important NoteThis product as supplied is intended for research use only, not for use in human, therapeutic or diagnostic applications without the expressed written authorization of United States Biological.
