Question

Product code: 109714 Inquiry: Hi Abcam, Do you know if this kit will immunocapture the ATP synthase enzyme from C. elegans? Thanks!

Product code: 109715: Inquiry: Hi Abcam, Do you know if this kit will capture ATP synthase from C. elegans? Thanks!

Product code: 109907: Inquiry: Hi Abcam, The instructions to this kit says that you need to add the provided phospholipids or else the reaction will not work ("The phospholipids provided in this kit are essential for Complex V activity"). Why is this so? For example, are the phospholipids necessary for the correct folding of complex V? Thanks!

Answer

Product code: 109714 Inquiry: Hi Abcam, Do you know if this kit will immunocapture the ATP synthase enzyme from C. elegans? Unlikely unfortunately – this kit was tested positive with human, rat and cow. Mouse was negative. I think it is unlikely to work with C.elegans. Product code: 109715: Inquiry: Hi Abcam, Do you know if this kit will capture ATP synthase from C. elegans? Thanks! This is the antibody for the above kit 109714. C.elegans is untested. Product code: 109907: Inquiry: Hi Abcam, The instructions to this kit says that you need to add the provided phospholipids or else the reaction will not work ("The phospholipids provided in this kit are essential for Complex V activity"). Why is this so? For example, are the phospholipids necessary for the correct folding of complex V? Thanks! Ab109714 and 109907 are similar products (109907 comes with sample and was designed for inhibition studies). Both kits require the addition of lipids. However you might anticipate that in the absence of lipids the enzyme would freely hydrolyze ATP, this does was not found to be the case.
