  • Function

    Involved in modulation of mTOR signaling. Involved in the regulation of mitochondrial lipids, leading to increase of mitochondrial mass. Potential oncogene.
  • Tissue specificity

    Detected in muscle fibers of patients with mitochondrial diseases; not detected in normal muscle fibers.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the GOLPH3/VPS74 family.
  • Post-translational

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 34 kDa
    Observed band size: 34 kDa
    Additional bands at: 32 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 30 seconds

    The predicted molecular weight of GOLPH3/MIDAS is 34-kDa. We are unsure why we are seeing an additional band in HeLa and A549 whole cell lysates. Abcam welcomes customer feedback and would appreciate any comments regarding this product and the data presented above.

  • ab98023 staining GOLPH3/MIDAS in HeLa cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence. Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X100. Samples were incubated with ab98023 (1/200: in PBS) for 1 hours at 22°C. An Alexa Fluor®488-conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG was used at dilution at 1/200 as secondary antibody. The nuclei are counterstained with DAPI.

  • ICC/IF image of ab98023 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab98023, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM. This antibody also gave a positive result in 4% PFA fixed (10 min) Hek293, HepG2 and MCF7 cells at 5µg/ml.
