Bcl-2 (B-cell lymphoma 2) is an oncogenic protein that inhibits apoptosis. It is a protein with a MW of 24-26 kDa, located within the mitochondrial membrane, endoplasmic reticulum and nuclear envelope. Bcl-2 is considered an important antiapoptotic protein and is thus classified as a proto-oncogene. Bcl-2 overexpression has been implicated in a wide variety of malignancies including (but not limited to) breast, prostate, skin, colon and pancreatic cancers as well as neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases. Related anti-apoptotic proteins include Bcl-xL, Mcl-1 and Bcl-w. Proapoptotic proteins in the Bcl-2 family include Bax, BAD, Bak, Blk and Bid.
AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
