This peptide corresponds to 15 amino acids near the amino terminus of human Bik.
PEP-0371 can be used as a blocking peptide with polyclonal antibody PA5-20249.
The Bik protein is known to interact with cellular and viral survival-promoting proteins, such as BCL2 and the Epstein-Barr virus in order to enhance programmed cell death. Because its activity is suppressed in the presence of survival-promoting proteins, this protein is suggested as a likely target for antiapoptotic proteins. This protein shares a critical BH3 domain with other death-promoting proteins, BAX and BAK.
