  • Function
    Mitochondrial membrane ATP synthase (F(1)F(0) ATP synthase or Complex V) produces ATP from ADP in the presence of a proton gradient across the membrane which is generated by electron transport complexes of the respiratory chain. F-type ATPases consist of two structural domains, F(1) - containing the extramembraneous catalytic core, and F(0) - containing the membrane proton channel, linked together by a central stalk and a peripheral stalk. During catalysis, ATP synthesis in the catalytic domain of F(1) is coupled via a rotary mechanism of the central stalk subunits to proton translocation. Part of the complex F(0) domain and the peripheric stalk, which acts as a stator to hold the catalytic alpha(3)beta(3) subcomplex and subunit a/ATP6 static relative to the rotary elements.

  • Immunocytochemistry image of ab117991 (MS972) stained NIH3T3 cells. The cells were paraformaldehyde fixed (4%, 20 min) and Triton X-100 permeabilized (0.1%, 15min) with urea/heat antigen retrieval method. The cells were incubated with ab117991 at 1 µg/ml for 2h at room temperature or over night at 4°C. The secondary antibody was (red) AlexaFluor® 594goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. 10% Goat serum was used as the blocking agent for all blocking steps. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue). The target protein locates to the mitochondria. The four cells in the upper portion of the image show mitochondria in the elongated, reticular, arrangement, the three cells in the lower portion of the image show a punctuate mitochondrial organization and may be dividing/have recently divided.
  • IHC image of ATP5F1 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 ab117991, 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.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your question submitted during our ICC webinar last week. We hope you enjoyed the presentation and found this useful.

Our sister company, Mitosciences, often uses antigen retrieval with ICC testing of the antibodies we sell. I contacted them for further information and can confirm the following:

In their experience they have not seen destruction of cell morphology during antigen retrieval. The cell lines they have typically used at MitoSciences are HdFn, HeLa, HepG2, MRC5, OXPHOS deficient skin fibroblasts. It is possible thatsome cell linesmay be too fragile for this procedure, but for those tested so far there have been no problems. They have not used other methods of antigen retrieval with this procedure.

I hope this information will be helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
