The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 77 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Titre using peptide based assay: 1/62500.
FunctionInvolved in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) metabolism. Could function as an adenine nucleotide-dependent DNA helicase. Function inferred to be critical for lifetime maintenance of mtDNA integrity. In vitro, forms in combination with POLG, a processive replication machinery, which can use double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) as template to synthesize single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) molecules. May be a key regulator of mtDNA copy number in mammals.
Tissue specificityHigh relative levels in skeletal muscle, testis and pancreas. Lower levels of expression in the heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, kidney, spleen, thymus, prostate, ovary, small intestine, colon and leukocytes. Expression is coregulated with MRPL43.
Involvement in diseaseProgressive external ophthalmoplegia with mitochondrial DNA deletions, autosomal dominant, 3 Sensory ataxic neuropathy dysarthria and ophthalmoparesis Mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 7
Cellular localizationMitochondrion matrix > mitochondrion nucleoid. Colocalizes with mtDNA in mitochondrial nucleoids, a nucleoproteins complex consisting of a number of copies of proteins associated with mtDNA, probably involved in mtDNA maintenance and expression.
