|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Other Accession||Q3KR86, Q8CAQ8|
|Calculated MW||83678 Da|
|Antigen Region||438-467 aa|
|Other Names||MICOS complex subunit MIC60, Cell proliferation-inducing gene 4/52 protein, Mitochondrial inner membrane protein, Mitofilin, p87/89, IMMT, HMP, MIC60, MINOS2|
|Target/Specificity||This IMMT antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 438-467 amino acids from the Central region of human IMMT.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||IMMT Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||HMP, MIC60, MINOS2|
|Function||Component of the MICOS complex, a large protein complex of the mitochondrial inner membrane that plays crucial roles in the maintenance of crista junctions, inner membrane architecture, and formation of contact sites to the outer membrane. Plays an important role in the maintenance of the MICOS complex stability and the mitochondrial cristae morphology (PubMed:22114354, PubMed:25781180).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion inner membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Mitochondrion|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Mitochondria are the center of cellular energy production and essential metabolic reactions. As double membrane-bound organelles, mitochondria from different species, tissues, and metabolic states are highly polymorphic in nature, yet exhibit common structural features. The ultrastructural variations in mitochondrial architecture occur mainly due to the differences in the amount and shape of cristae. Abundant cristae are found in mitochondria from tissues where energy demand is high. Analysis of the human heart mitochondrial proteome shows that mitofilin is one of the most abundant mitochondrial proteins. It appears to play an important role in the maintenance of cristae morphology.
