For identifying inhibitors and activators of mitochondrial biogenesis in adherent cultured cells. Each kit contains sufficient reagents to analyze two 96-well plates of fixed human, rat, mouse, or bovine cells. This kit utilizes colorimetric detection for use with standard plate readers. An alternate IR version of this kit is available which utilizes LI-COR® near-infrared IRDyes® for detection - MitoBiogenesis™ In-Cell ELISA Kit (IR) (ab110216/MS642).
In-Cell ELISA Kits use quantitative immunocytochemistry to measure protein levels or post-translational modifications in cultured cells. Cells are fixed in a 96-well plate and targets of interest are detected with highly specific, well-characterized monoclonal antibodies and levels are quantified with enzyme-labeled secondary antibodies.
ab110216 MitoBiogenesis™ In-Cell ELISA Kit (ab110216/MS643) is designed to measure drug-induced effects on mitochondrial biogenesis early in the safety screening process. ab110216 MitoBiogenesis™ In-Cell ELISA Kit is a true duplexing 96/384-well assay that ratios both an mtDNA- and an nDNA-encoded protein in cultured or primary cells, and which requires very little sample prep and few overall steps.
Cells (human, rat or mouse) are seeded in 96- or 384-well microplates, and after exposure to experimental compounds for several cell doublings, the levels of two mitochondrial proteins are measured simultaneously in each well. 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 70kDa 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. Optionally, total protein levels can also be measured.
