|Application ||IHC-P, FC, WB, E|
|Other Accession||P13803, Q99LC5, Q8HXY0, Q2KJE4, NP_000117.1|
|Predicted||Bovine, Monkey, Rat|
|Calculated MW||35080 Da|
|Antigen Region||276-304 aa|
|Other Names||Electron transfer flavoprotein subunit alpha, mitochondrial, Alpha-ETF, ETFA|
|Target/Specificity||This ETFA antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 276-304 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ETFA.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ETFA Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||The electron transfer flavoprotein serves as a specific electron acceptor for several dehydrogenases, including five acyl- CoA dehydrogenases, glutaryl-CoA and sarcosine dehydrogenase. It transfers the electrons to the main mitochondrial respiratory chain via ETF-ubiquinone oxidoreductase (ETF dehydrogenase).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion matrix.|

ETFA participates in catalyzing the initial step of the mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation. It shuttles electrons between primary flavoprotein dehydrogenases and the membrane-bound electron transfer flavoprotein ubiquinone oxidoreductase. Defects in electron-transfer-flavoprotein have been implicated in type II glutaricaciduria in which multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiencies result in large excretion of glutaric, lactic, ethylmalonic, butyric, isobutyric, 2-methyl-butyric, and isovaleric acids. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
