Mouse anti Human Bcl-2 antibody, clone 100 recognizes the human Apoptosis regulator Bcl-2 oncoprotein, a 239 amino acid ~25kDa integral single pass membrane protein containing 4 BH motifs which lies within the cell rather than on the cell surface. The protein is localised in the outer mitochondrial membrane and plays a role in the inhibition of apoptosis.

Mouse anti Human Bcl-2, clone 100 reacts with small B lymphocytes in the mantle zone and many cells within T cell areas. Very few cells in germinal centres are stained. In the thymus many cells in the medulla are stained but the cortex shows weak or negative staining. In non-haematopoietic tissues few cells are stained (Krajewski et al. 1995). Mouse anti Human Bcl-2 antibody, clone 100 reacts with neoplastic cells of follicular lymphoma and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (Reed 1997).

Mouse anti human Bcl-2, clone 100 has been successfully used to demonstrate Bcl-2 in formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissues of radioresistant squamous cell carcinoma by immunohistochemistry (Condon et al. 2002).

Storage Information

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.

Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution
Flow Cytometry 1 1/50 1/100
Immunohistology - Frozen 1/20 1/40
Immunohistology - Paraffin 2 1/20 1/40
Western Blotting
  1. 1 Membrane permeabilisation is required for this application. Bio-Rad recommends the use of Leucoperm (Product Code BUF09) for this purpose.
  2. 2 This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections.

    Sodium citrate buffer pH 6.0 is recommended for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
Flow Cytometry
Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 1x106 cells in 100ul.
