  • General notes

    This antibody clone is manufactured by Abcam.

    MCAD (medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase) is an oxidoreductase enzyme of the mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway that is specific for acyl chain lengths of 4 to 16. It also utilizes the electron transfer flavoprotein (ETF) as electron acceptor that transfers the electrons to the main mitochondrial respiratory chain via ETF-ubiquinone oxidoreductase (ETF dehydrogenase).

    Product was previously marketed under the MitoSciences sub-brand.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab110296 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 0.125 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 47 kDa.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Flow Cyt Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.

ab170190 - Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


In-Cell ELISA Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. (0.1 µg/well)
IHC-P 1/1000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval via the pressure cooker method before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

  • Function
    This enzyme is specific for acyl chain lengths of 4 to 16.
  • Pathway
    Lipid metabolism; mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ACADM are the cause of acyl-CoA dehydrogenase medium-chain deficiency (ACADMD) [MIM:201450]. It is an autosomal recessive disease which causes fasting hypoglycemia, hepatic dysfunction, and encephalopathy, often resulting in death in infancy.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion matrix.

  • Immunocytochemistry image of ab110296 stained Human HeLa cells. The cells were paraformaldehyde fixed (4%, 20 minutes) and Triton X-100 permeabilized (0.1%, 15 minutes). The cells were incubated with ab110296 (1 µg/ml) for 2 hours at room temperature or over night at 4°C. The secondary antibody was (green) Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1 hour. 10% Goat serum was used as the blocking agent for all blocking steps. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue). Target protein locates mainly in mitochondria.
  • ACADM immunohistochemistry in Human cerebellum visualized with ab110296 at 1/1000. MCAD immunoactivity is most intense in neuronal cell bodies, most notably in the large Purkinje cells. Note the distinctive subcellular localization of MCAD immunoreactivity in the Purkinje cell bodies.

    Lysates/proteins at 15 µg per lane.

    Predicted band size: 47 kDa

  • HL-60 cells were stained with 1 µg/mL ab110296 (blue) or an equal amount of an isotype control antibody (red) and analyzed by flow cytometry.
  • HL-60 cells were incubated at 37°C for 24h with vehicle control (0 µM) and different concentrations of fenofibrate (ab120832). Increased expression of ACADM in HL-60 cells correlates with an increase in fenofibrate concentration, as described in literature.

    Whole cell lysates were prepared with RIPA buffer (containing protease inhibitors and sodium orthovanadate), 10µg of each were loaded on the gel and the WB was run under reducing conditions. After transfer the membrane was blocked for an hour using 5% BSA before being incubated with ab110296 at 1 µg/ml and ab9484 at 1 µg/ml overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-mouse antibody conjugated to HRP (ab97040) at 1/10000 dilution and visualised using ECL development solution.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage.

Das Immunogen für ab110296 war das Protein voller Länge. Das Epitop, das der Antikörper bindet ist leider nicht näher kartiert worden und wir kennen es deshalb nicht.

Ich freue ...
