Bcl-XL is a transmembrane protein located in the mitochondrial membranes of cells that are long-lived and postmitotic, such as adult brain cells. It plays arole in the signal transduction pathway of the FAS-Ligand. Bcl-XL is an anti-apoptotic protein which is a member of the Bcl-2 family which are able to form heterodimers, and this is an significant event in the regulation of apoptosis. BCL-XL is involved in the survival of cancer cells. Bcl-xL is the leading monitor of apoptosis/active cell suicide. Bcl-xL has cell death repressor activity and therefore acts as a survival protein.
BclXL, Bcl-X(L), Bcl-XL.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The protein contains 10mM Tris-HCl pH-8, 1mM EDTA and 250mM NaCl.
Suspend BclXL in 1000
Lyophilized Bcl-XL althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Bcl-XL should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
