    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in CPT2 are the cause of carnitine palmitoyltransferase 2 deficiency (CPT2D) [MIM:255110, 600649]; also known as CPT-II deficiency or CPT2 deficiency. CPT2D is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by recurrent myoglobinuria, episodes of muscle pain, stiffness, and rhabdomyolysis. These symptoms are triggered by prolonged exercise, fasting or viral infection and patients are usually young adults. In addition to this classical, late-onset, muscular type, a hepatic or hepatocardiomuscular form has been reported in infants. Clinical pictures in these children or neonates include hypoketotic hypoglycemia, liver dysfunction, cardiomyopathy and sudden death.
      Defects in CPT2 are the cause of carnitine palmitoyltransferase 2 deficiency, lethal neonatal (CPT2D-LN) [MIM:608836]; also known as lethal neonatal CPT-II deficiency. It is a lethal neonatal form of CPT2D. This rarely presentation is antenatal with cerebral periventricular cysts and cystic dysplastic kidneys. The clinical variability of the disease is likely attributed to the variable residual enzymatic activity.

    • Immunocytochemistry image of ab110293 stained Human HepG2 cells. The cells were paraformaldehyde fixed (4%, 20 min) and Triton X-100 permeabilized (0.1%, 15 min). The cells were incubated with ab110293 at 4 µg/ml for 2h at room temperature, or over night at 4°C. The secondary antibody was (red) Alexa Fluor® 594 goat 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). Target protein locates mainly in mitochondria.
    • HL-60 cells were stained with 1 µg/mL of ab110293 (blue) or an equal amount of an isotype control antibody (red) and analyzed by flow cytometry.
    • SDS-PAGE analysis of IP samples. As an IP antibody, ab110293 works with human, bovine, rat, and mouse samples.

    • IHC image of CPT2 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 ab110293, 10µg/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.
