  • FunctionThe 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).
  • Tissue specificityAbundant in liver, heart and skeletal muscle. A weak expression is seen in the brain, placenta, lung, kidney and pancreas.
  • Involvement in diseaseGlutaric aciduria 2B
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ETF beta-subunit/FixA family.
  • DomainThe recognition loop recognizes a hydrophobic patch at the surface of interacting dehydrogenases and acts as a static anchor at the interface.
  • Post-translational
    Methylated. Trimethylation at Lys-200 and Lys-203 may negatively regulate the activity in electron transfer from Acyl-CoA dehydrogenases.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion matrix.

Anti-ETFB antibody images

  • IHC image of ab73986 staining in human liver formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab73986, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
