  • FunctionElectron carrier protein. The oxidized form of the cytochrome c heme group can accept an electron from the heme group of the cytochrome c1 subunit of cytochrome reductase. Cytochrome c then transfers this electron to the cytochrome oxidase complex, the final protein carrier in the mitochondrial electron-transport chain.
    Plays a role in apoptosis. Suppression of the anti-apoptotic members or activation of the pro-apoptotic members of the Bcl-2 family leads to altered mitochondrial membrane permeability resulting in release of cytochrome c into the cytosol. Binding of cytochrome c to Apaf-1 triggers the activation of caspase-9, which then accelerates apoptosis by activating other caspases.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in CYCS are the cause of thrombocytopenia type 4 (THC4) [MIM:612004]; also known as autosomal dominant thrombocytopenia type 4. Thrombocytopenia is the presence of relatively few platelets in blood. THC4 is a non-syndromic form of thrombocytopenia. Clinical manifestations of thrombocytopenia are absent or mild. THC4 may be caused by dysregulated platelet formation.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the cytochrome c family.
  • Post-translational
    Binds 1 heme group per subunit.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion matrix.

  • Western blot of human Cytochrome C from 293T cells (divided into two fractions: Lane 1- cytoplasmic, Lane 2-nuclear) using anti Cytochrome c antibody (ab16076) at 1µg/mL.

    Method: Cell extracts from 293T cells (2x106) were separated into cytoplasmic and nuclear fraction, resolved by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with the monoclonal anti-cytochrome c antibody (ab16076) at 1µg/ml. Proteins were visualized using a peroxidase-conjugated antibody to mouse IgG and a chemiluminescence detection system.
