||Recombinant full-length human BID was expressed by baculovirus inSf9 insect cellsusing an N-terminal GST tag. MW = 52kDa.
||BID is a BH3 interacting death domain that heterodimerizes with either agonist BAX or antagonist BCL2. BID is a member of the BCL-2 family of cell death regulators and is a mediator of mitochondrial damage induced by caspase-8 (CASP8). BID initiates apoptosis by binding to regulatory sites on prosurvival BCL2 proteins to directly neutralize their function. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants of BID have been found, but the full-length nature of some variants has not been defined. BID together with Cathepsins play an important role in the actions of Camptothecin on breast cancer cells.

|Storage And Stability:
||Store product at -70℃. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
