The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 61 kDa.
Use a concentration of 3 µg/ml. Antigen retrieval is not essential but may optimise staining. Place sample in 1X citrate buffer (pH 6.0) in pressure cooker under 125oC for 4min and under 90oC for 45min.
PathwayAmino-acid degradation; L-leucine degradation; (S)-3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA from 3-isovaleryl-CoA: step 2/3.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in MCCC2 are the cause of methylcrotonoyl-CoA carboxylase deficiency type 2 (MCC2 deficiency) [MIM:210210]. MCC2 deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder of leucine catabolism. The phenotype is variable, ranging from neonatal onset with severe neurological involvement to asymptomatic adults. There is a characteristic organic aciduria with massive excretion of 3-hydroxyisovaleric acid and 3-methylcrotonylglycine, usually in combination with a severe secondary carnitine deficiency.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the AccD/PCCB family. Contains 1 carboxyltransferase domain.
