|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||61109 Da|
|Antigen Region||92-120 aa|
|Other Names||Mitochondria-eating protein, Spermatogenesis-associated protein 18, SPATA18, MIEAP|
|Target/Specificity||This SPATA18 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 92-120 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human SPATA18.|
|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||SPATA18 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Key regulator of mitochondrial quality that mediates the repairing or degradation of unhealthy mitochondria in response to mitochondrial damage. Mediator of mitochondrial protein catabolic process (also named MALM) by mediating the degradation of damaged proteins inside mitochondria by promoting the accumulation in the mitochondrial matrix of hydrolases that are characteristic of the lysosomal lumen. Also involved in mitochondrion degradation of damaged mitochondria by promoting the formation of vacuole-like structures (named MIV), which engulf and degrade unhealthy mitochondria by accumulating lysosomes. The physical interaction of SPATA18/MIEAP, BNIP3 and BNIP3L/NIX at the mitochondrial outer membrane regulates the opening of a pore in the mitochondrial double membrane in order to mediate the translocation of lysosomal proteins from the cytoplasm to the mitochondrial matrix.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Mitochondrion outer membrane Note=Localizes to the cytoplasm under normal conditions (PubMed:21264228). Relocalizes to mitochondrion outer membrane following cellular stress. Colocalizes with BNIP3 and BNIP3L at the mitochondrion outer membrane (PubMed:22292033)|
