Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab104274 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 84 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.

Target

  • Function
    Essential transmembrane GTPase, which mediates mitochondrial fusion. Fusion of mitochondria occurs in many cell types and constitutes an important step in mitochondria morphology, which is balanced between fusion and fission. MFN1 acts independently of the cytoskeleton. Overexpression induces the formation of mitochondrial networks.
  • Tissue specificity
    Ubiquitous. Expressed at slightly higher level in kidney and heart. Isoform 2 may be overexpressed in some tumors, such as lung cancers.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the mitofusin family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Ubiquitinated by MARCH5.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm and Mitochondrion outer membrane.
