|Application ||WB, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_777549, 29789409|
|Calculated MW||19856 Da|
|Application Notes||Mimitin antibody can be used for detection of Mimitin by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunoflourescence starting at 20 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Mimitin antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||Mimitin Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Acts as a molecular chaperone for mitochondrial complex I assembly (PubMed:16200211). Complex I functions in the transfer of electrons from NADH to the respiratory chain. The immediate electron acceptor for the enzyme is believed to be ubiquinone (PubMed:16200211, PubMed:27626371).|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in ESCC cells. Also expressed in heart, skeletal muscle, liver, and in fibroblasts|

Mimitin Antibody: Mimitin, a small mitochondrial protein, whose transcription is directly stimulated by c-Myc, is highly expressed in 80% of esophageal squamous cell carcinomas (ESCC). Suppression of Mimitin expression by RNA interference had no effect in cancerous cell lines such as human cervical carcinoma or hepatocarcinoma cell lines, but caused a decrease in cell proliferation in human glioblastoma, embryonic lung fibroblastic cells, and ESCC, suggesting Mimitin may play a special role in these types of cells. Mimitin expression is also regulated by MAPK kinases and IL-1, but not through the NF-κB-related pathway. It will interact with the microtubular protein MAP1S and can affect the activities of caspase-3 and -7 in cells stimulated to develop apoptosis. Other experiments suggest that Mimitin also acts as a molecular chaperone for the assembly of the mitochondrial complex I.
