Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is tonsil or small intestine tissue.
MCL-1 (Myeloid cell leukemia-1) is a member of the BCL-2 family. The carboxy terminal of MCL-1 and BCL-2 share significant sequence homology. Expression of MCL-1 is increased upon exposure of ML-1 cells to various types of DNA damaging agents (e.g. ionizing radiation, ultraviolet radiation, and alkylating drugs) along with increases in GADD45 and Bax and a decrease in BCL-2. Like BCL-2, MCL-1 has the capacity to promote cell viability under conditions that otherwise cause apoptosis.
