Primary antibody notesThe steroidogenic acute regulatory (StAR) protein facilitates the movement of cholesterol from the outer to inner mitochondrial membrane in adrenal and gonadal cells, fostering steroid biosynthesis. MLN 64 is a 445-amino acid protein of unknown function. When 218 amino-terminal residues of MLN 64 are deleted, the resulting N-218 MLN 64 has 37% amino acid identity with StAR and 50% of StAR's steroidogenic activity in transfected cells. Bacterially expressed N-218 MLN 64 exerts StAR-like activity to promote the transfer of cholesterol from the outer to inner mitochondrial membrane in vitro. The presence of a protease-resistant domain and a protease-sensitive carboxy-terminal domain in N-218 MLN 64 is similar to the organization of StAR. However, as MLN 64 never enters the mitochondria, the protease-resistant domain of MLN 64 cannot be a mitochondrial pause-transfer sequence, as has been proposed for StAR.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab3478 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
|IHC-P||1/50. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|ICC||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|IP||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|Inhibition Assay||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 49 kDa. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~53 kDa protein representing MLN 64 from rat adrenal gland tissue extracts. This antibody also detects an ~25 kDa protein from rat adrenal gland which may correspond to degradation product.|

Anti-MLN64 antibody (ab3478) at 1 µg/ml + Lysates prepared from rat adrenal gland
Predicted band size: 49 kDa
Western blot of MLN64 on rat adrenal gland extract using ab3478.
ab3478 staining MLN64 in Human ovarian cancer tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 5% BSA for 12 hours 10 minutes at 4°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/50) for 20 minutes at 25°C. An undiluted HRP-conjugated monoclonal was used as the secondary antibody.
ICC/IF image of ab3478 stained HeLa 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 (ab3478, 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.
