Purified recombinant human Beclin 1 protein fragments expressed in E Coli.
This antibody detects endogenous levels of Beclin 1 and does not cross-react with related proteins.
Sequence Similarities
Belongs to the beclin family.
Subunit Structure
Interacts with GOPC and GRID2. Interacts with AMBRA1. Forms a complex with PIK3C3 and PIK3R4 and either UVRAG and KIAA0226/Rubicon, or with ATG14. UVRAG and ATG14 form mutually exclusive complexes through direct competition for BECN1-binding. The complex containing ATG14 upregulates autophagy, while the one containing Rubicon downregulates autophagy By similarity. Interacts with BCL2 and BCL2L1. Interacts with VMP1. Interacts with PIK3CB By similarity. Interacts with DAPK1.
Subcellular Location
Golgi apparatus; trans-Golgi network membrane; Peripheral membrane protein.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-BECN1 antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

NCBI Summary for BECN1
This gene encodes a protein that regulates autophagy, a catabolic process of degradation induced by starvation. The encoded protein is a component of the phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K) complex which mediates vesicle-trafficking processes. This protein is thought to play a role in multiple cellular processes, including tumorigenesis, neurodegeneration and apoptosis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

UniProt Comments for BECN1
beclin 1: an essential autophagy protein that has been linked to multiple processes including tumor suppression, protection against some cardiac and neurological degenerative diseases, and lifespan extension. A ubiquitous protein of the beclin family. Is part of the class III PI3K complex that induces autophagy. Expressed at elevated levels in dendrites and cell bodies of cerebellar Purkinje cells. Interacts with the anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2, which inhibits autophagy when it is present in the endoplasmic reticulum. The dissociation of ATG6 from Bcl-2 is essential for its autophagic activity. Interacts with PITC and GluR-delta2. Probably forms a complex with AMBRA1 and PIK3C3. Plays a role in antiviral host defense. Protects against infection by a neurovirulent strain of Sindbis virus.
