Rabbit anti Rat BAG-5

Catalogue number: X1596P

Product Type Polyclonal Antibody
Units100 µg
Species reactivity Rat
Application Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin Sections)
Western Blot

It has been hypothesizes that the BAG-5 protein will induce the death of nigral neurons through its predicted interaction with hsp70, which will cause increased protein aggregation and cell death by disinhibition of hsp70Õs anti-apoptotic function. It is believed that BAG-5 will play an important role in the mechanisms of neuronal death. BAG-5 may also be of interest due to its possible role as a modulator of the hsp70/hsp40 chaperone axis or its possible interaction and coordination of localization/modulation of other BAG containing proteins via BAG-BAG heterodimerization.
