The Bmi-1 oncogene (also known as polycomb group ring finger 4, MGC12685, murine leukemia viral (bmi 1) oncogene homolog, oncogene BMI 1, polycomb complex protein BMI 1 and RNF51) induces telomerase activity and immortalizes human mammary epithelial cells. Bmi-1 extends the replicative life span of human fibroblasts by suppressing the p16-dependent senescence pathway.  The polycomb group (PcG) genes are involved in the maintenance of cellular memory through epigenetic chromatin modifications. Recent studies have implicated a role for PcG genes in the self-renewal of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), a process in which cellular memory is maintained through cell division. Among the PcG genes, Bmi-1 plays a central role in the inheritance of stemness, and its forced expression promotes HSC self-renewal. These findings highlight the importance of epigenetic regulation in HSC self-renewal and identify PcG genes as potential targets for therapeutic HSC manipulation.

Conjugated Peptide
This affinity purified antibody was prepared from whole goat serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 252-264 of human Bmi1 protein.
This affinity purified antibody is directed against human Bmi1 protein. The product was affinity purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity purification.  A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross reactivity with Bmi1 protein from human, rat, orangutan, dog, chimpanzee, bovine and cat based on 100% homology to the immunogen sequence.  This sequence shows significant homology to homologues from Xenopus and chicken sources.  Reactivity against homologues from other sources is not known.

Application Details

ELISA, IF, WB, Multiplex
This affinity purified antibody has been tested for use in ELISA, immunofluorescence, and western blot.  A 1:200 dilution is reported to be effective for Immunofluorescence against Methanol fixed cells. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user. Expect a band approximately 37 kDa in size corresponding to Bmi1 by western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract.
