Principle of the Assay
The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to Bax. Standards or samples are then added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells with a biotin-conjugated antibody preparation specific to Bax. Next, Avidin conjugated to Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to each microplate well and incubated. After the TMB substrate solution is added, only those wells that contain Bax, biotin-conjugated antibody, and enzyme-conjugated Avidin will exhibit a change in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of sulphuric acid solution, and the color change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450nm ± 10nm. The concentration of Bax in the samples is then determined by comparing the O.D. of the samples to the standard curve.

Plays a role in the mitochondrial apoptotic process. Under normal conditions, BAX is largely cytosolic via constant retrotranslocation from mitochondria to the cytosol mediated by BCL2L1/Bcl-xL, which avoids accumulation of toxic BAX levels at the mitochondrial outer membrane (MOM). Under stress conditions, undergoes a conformation change that causes translocation to the mitochondrion membrane, leading to the release of cytochrome c that then triggers apoptosis. Promotes activation of CASP3, and thereby apoptosis.

|Storage||The TMB Substrate, Wash Buffer (30X concentrate), and the Stop Solution should be stored at 4°C upon receipt, while the other items should be stored at -20°C.|
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): 3 samples with low, middle, and high-level Bax were tested 20 times on one plate, respectively.
|SENSITIVITY||The minimum detectable dose was 0.124ng/mL.|
|SPECIFICITY||This assay has high sensitivity and excellent specificity for the detection of Bax.
No significant cross-reactivity or interference between Bax and analogs was observed.
Limited by current skills and knowledge, it is impossible to perform all possible cross-reactivity detection tests between Bax and all analogs, therefore, cross reactivity may still exist.
