  • Function
    Accessory subunit of the mitochondrial membrane respiratory chain NADH dehydrogenase (Complex I), that is believed not to be involved in catalysis. Complex I functions in the transfer of electrons from NADH to the respiratory chain. The immediate electron acceptor for the enzyme is believed to be ubiquinone.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the complex I NDUFB8 subunit family.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion inner membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links
  • Alternative names

  • All lanes : Anti-NDUFB8 antibody [20E9DH10C12] (ab110242) at 0.5 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : Isolated mitochondria from Human heart at 5 µg
    Lane 2 : Isolated mitochondria from cow heart at 1 µg
    Lane 3 : Isolated mitochondria from rat heart at 10 µg
    Lane 4 : Isolated mitochondria from mouse heart at 10 µg

    Predicted band size: 22 kDa

    Extra bands in the mouse sample (lane 4) are due to the reaction of the IgG-specific goat anti-mouse secondary antibody with residual mouse blood in the heart tissue, as it is very difficult to entirely remove the blood from these small organs.
  • Immunohistochemistry in serial sections of the muscle of patient AIV-5

    The patient is sufferening from Spastic paraplegia 7.

    Immunohistochemistry for complex I (NDUFB8) (A), complex II (B), complex III (C) and COX/SDH histochemistry (D) in serial sections of the muscle of patient AIV-5. There are complex I, III and IV deficient fibres, but complex I deficiency is most pronounced. Arrows mark serial sections of the same muscle fibers stained for different complexes.

    NDUFB8 (also refered to as complex I) was detected using ab110242 at 1/100 dilution).

    (After Figure 3 of Wedding et al)

  • Skeletal muscle immunohistochemistry using ab110242 on frozen tissue sections from a patient with a single large deletion of the mtDNA show a mosaic of complex I positive and complex I negative fibers.

Thank you for your call earlier.

I now had a look at the homology between the immunogens of the antibodies included in the MitoProfile® Total OXPHOS Rodent WB Antibody Cocktail (ab110413) and the respective proteins in Drosophila.

Unfortunately, the homologies are only between 34% and 76%. This is not enough to expect a cross-reaction of the antibody cocktail.

Therefore I cannot recommend ab110413 with drosophila samples.

I am sorry I did not have a positive answer to your question on this occasion and wish you good luck with your research.

Thank you for this additional information. I can confirm that ab110413 (MitoProfile® Total OXPHOS Rodent WB Antibody Cocktail) contains 5 antibodies. The datasheets and more information about these antibodies can be found when following these links to their respective datasheets: ab14705: Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=14705). ab14714: Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=14714). ab14745: Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=14745). ab14748: Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=14748). ab110242: Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=110242). As mentioned in my previous email all these antibodies have purified full-length proteins as immunogens and the actual binding site of the monoclonal antibodies was not further mapped. The purified proteins were extracted from cow (and human in case of ab14705). I am sorry I cannot provide more exact immunogen information on this occasion and hope this information was nevertheless helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions.
