  • Relevance

    ANT is a reversible transporter of ATP and ADP. During oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) the protein exchanges ATP out for ADP in, however, in the absence of OXPHOS ANT works in reverse to maintain mitochondrial membrane potential. A subset of patients with heart related diseases have been shown to harbor mutations in the ANT gene or to develop an autoimmune reaction against the protein. There are a number of proteins found in mitochondria that, under circumstances favoring apoptosis, coalesce to form the so-called permeability transition pore. The proteins identified as a part of the PTP include cytosolic hexokinase, outer membrane porin (also called the voltage dependent anion channel or VDAC), adenylate cyclase in the intermembrane space, the adenine nucleotide transporter (ANT) and the peripheral benzodiazepine receptor protein of the inner membrane along with cyclophilin D of the matrix space. Hexokinase, porin and ANT all occur as isoforms and it remains to be determined whether there is specificity of these different forms for the PTP.
  • Cellular localization



  • IHC image of Adenine Nucleotide Translocase staining in Human normal heart muscle formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ 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 ab109864, 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.

Thank you for contacting us.

We unfortunately at this time Anti-Adenine Nucleotide Translocase 1 antibody [5F51BB5AG7] (ab110322) has not been tested for use in IP. However, this does not mean that it will not work, just that we have not tested this product in IP and to our knowledge, our customers have not either.If you would be interested in testing ab110322 in IP we have a testing discount that we would be able to offer you. This would involve you purchasing the antibody, testing it in IP with mouse samples, then sharing the results with us through an Abreview. Regardless of if the results are positive or negative, you would then be entitled to a free primary antibody of your choice from our catalogue.

More information on this offer can be found from the following

If you would be interested in this offer please do let me know as I will need to issue you with a discount code prior to purchase of ab110322.

In regards to ab109864, this productuses the anti-ANT monoclonal antibody ab110322, therefore the beads should be able to IP ANT from mouse samples.However this has also not been tested. If you would be interested in testing this on mouse please let me know. The same program outlined above would be applicable here.

If you should choose ab109864, because this product is a mouse monoclonal and your tissue samples will be mouse, I would recommend use of a light chain only secondary antibody for the western blots. These would allow you to be confident of your band of interested is not obstructed by the heavy chain. As ab109864 is kappa, the correct seconddaries would be ab99617 ( or ab99632 (

I hope this information has been of help. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Thanks for your phone call last week and I apologize for the extended delay getting back to you. There is an error on the datasheet, and the recommended antibody ratio of 100 ug per mg of sample is actually for a different Mitosciences product in which the antibody is already coated to agarose beads. For ab109864, you can follow the general Abcam IP protocol - For the primary antibody, we recommend titrating the optimal antibody ratio between 1ug and 100ug antibody per mg of sample depending on the sample type.    This antibody can work in Western blot and is most optimal following this specific protocol- I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything else we can do for you.
