Abcam’s MitoBiogenesis™ Flow Cytometry kit is designed to evaluate drug-induced effects on mitochondrial biogenesis early in the safety screening process. The assay combines the power of single cell analysis obtained with flow cytometry to evaluate the ratio between two important mitochondrial proteins, one encoded by the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and one encoded by the nuclear DNA (nDNA).
The two proteins are each subunits of a different oxidative phosphorylation enzyme complex, one protein being subunit I of Complex IV (COX-I), which is mtDNA-encoded, and the other being the 70 kDa subunit of Complex II (SDH-A), which is nDNA-encoded. Complex IV includes several proteins which are encoded in the mitochondrion, while the proteins of Complex II are entirely encoded in the nucleus.
Human, rat and mouse cells are treated for several doublings then are harvested, fixed and permeabilized in suspension. The in-vivo levels of the target proteins are detected simultaneously in each cell with highly specific, well-characterized, monoclonal antibodies that are labeled with Alexa® fluorophores. Thus, minimizing potential changes during sample preparation and handling, such as preparation of protein extracts.
