  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the LDH/MDH superfamily. MDH type 1 family.
  • Post-translational

    Acetylation is enhanced by up to 67% after treatment either with trichostin A (TSA) or with nicotinamide (NAM) with the appearance of tri-and tetraacetylations. Glucose also increases acetylation by about 60%.
  • Cellular localization

    Mitochondrion matrix.

  • ICC/IF image of ab135530 stained CaC02 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 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 ab135530 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) 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.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of MDH2 in formalin fixed, paraffin embedded Human lung carcinoma tissue, using ab135530 at a 1/50 dilution, followed by a peroxidase-conjugated secondary antibody and DAB staining.
  • Flow cytometry analysis of MDH2 in K562 cells labelled with ab135530 at a 1/10 dilution (bottom histogram), compared to a negative control cell (top histogram). FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.
  • All lanes : Anti-MDH2 antibody (ab135530) at 1/50 dilution

    Lane 1 : Non-transfected 293 cell lysate
    Lane 2 : 293 cell lysate transiently transfected with the MDH2 gene

    Lysates/proteins at 2 µg per lane.

    Predicted band size: 36 kDa
