Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab57687 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
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml.

This antibody has only been tested in WB against the recombinant fragment used as immunogen. We have no data on the detection of endogenous protein.

Flow Cyt Use 0.1µg for 106 cells. ab170191-Mouse monoclonal IgG2a, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.

Target

  • FunctionUCP are mitochondrial transporter proteins that create proton leaks across the inner mitochondrial membrane, thus uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation from ATP synthesis. As a result, energy is dissipated in the form of heat.
  • Tissue specificityBrown adipose tissue.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the mitochondrial carrier family.
    Contains 3 Solcar repeats.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion inner membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links
  • FormUCP1 is preferentially expressed in brown adipose tissue
  • Alternative names
    • mitochondrial brown fat uncoupling protein antibody
    • Mitochondrial brown fat uncoupling protein 1 antibody
    • SLC25A7 antibody

Anti-UCP1 antibody images

  • Overlay histogram showing HepG2 cells stained with ab57687 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab57687, 0.1μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was an anti-mouse Alexa Fluor® 488 (ab150113) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2a [ICIGG2A] (ab91361, 0.1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter. This antibody gave a positive signal in HepG2 cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
