Technical Data
Beclin-1 (Beclin 1 (Coiled-coil Moesin-like BCL2-interacting Protein), Beclin1, BECN1, APG6, ATG6, ATG6 Autophagy-related 6 Homolog, Coiled-coil Myosin-like Bcl-2-Interacting Protein, GT197, Protein GT197, VPS30)
Beclin1 is a 60kD member of the Beclin family of proteins. It is part of a lipid-kinase complex that includes UVRAG and PI3 and induces autophagy; in the presence of Bcl-2, autophagy is repressed. Beclin1 is widely expressed but abundantly found in mammary epithelium, glia and neurons. Human Beclin1 is 450aa in length and contains a Bcl-2 binding domain aa88-150, a nuclear export signal motif aa180-189, a coiled-coil region aa142-270, and an evolutionary conserved domain aa244-337. There is one potential alternate start site at Met88. Over aa12-239, human Beclin1 is 98aa identical to mouse Beclin1.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
