Purified mitochondrial Complex IV subunit I (Human).
Samples that are to be used in Western blotting with this antibody should NOT be boiled before loading onto the gel. Boiling of the sample will cause a loss of signal in Western blotting (see WB image on ab110413).
Product was previously marketed under the MitoSciences sub-brand.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab14705 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|IHC-FoFr||Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 23840470|
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
|WB||Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 57 kDa).|
|ICC||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
|Flow Cyt||Use 1µg for 106 cells.|
|IHC-Fr||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
ab14705 staining MTCO1 in pig retinal pigment epithelial cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.5% TX-100 and blocked with 5% serum for 20 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/2000 in 1% goat serum, 0.1% TX100; PBS) for 16 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor®546-conjugated Goat polyclonal to mouse IgG, dilution 1/500, was used as secondary antibody.
ab14705 staining MTCO1 in rat cerebellum primary cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.5% TX-100 and blocked with 5% serum for 20 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/2000 in 1% goat serum, 0.1% TX100; PBS) for 16 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor®546-conjugated Goat polyclonal to mouse IgG, dilution 1/5000, was used as secondary antibody.
IHC image of MTCO1 staining in human normal colon 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 ab14705, 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.
ab14705 staining rat pancreas sections by IHC-P. The tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and a heat mediated antigen retrival step was performed with citric acid pH 6. Blocking of the sample was done with 1% BSA for 10 minutes at 21°C, followed by staining with ab14705 at 1/1000 in TBS/BSA/azide for 2h at 21°C. A biotinylated goat anti-mouse polyclonal antibody at 1/200 was used as the secondary antibody. Positivity in exocrine glands appears to be intense at the cytplasm of adjacent cells. The cells of the Islet of Langerhan to the right have a diffuse, punctate positivity.
ab14705 staining MTCO1 in pig smooth muscle tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 1% BSA for 10 minutes at 21°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citric acid. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/250 in TBS/BSA/azide) for 2 hours at 21°C. A Biotin-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
The image shows the two smooth muscle layers (inner circular is above the outer longitudinal) of the small intestine. Between the two layers one can see Ganglion cells of Aurbach's plexus. Both muscle and ganglion cells are enriched with mitochondria, as expected.
