  • Description

    Rabbit polyclonal to PITRM1
  • Host species

  • Tested applications

    Suitable for: IPmore details
    Unsuitable for: WB
  • Species reactivity

    Reacts with: Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide within Human PITRM1 aa 987-1037. The exact sequence is proprietary.
    Database link: Q5JRX3

  • Positive control

    • IP: PITRM1 IP in HEK-293T whole cell lysate.
  • General notes

    ab241986 has not performed satisfactorily when used for WB of PITRM1 in crude preparations (e.g. whole cell lysate). This antibody can be used for WB of enriched (e.g. immunoprecipitated) sources of PITRM1.

  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for WB.
  • Target

    • Function

      ATP-independent protease that degrades mitochondrial transit peptides after their cleavage. Also degrades other unstructured peptides. Specific for peptides in the range of 10 to 65 residues. Able to degrade amyloid beta A4 (APP) protein when it accumulates in mitochondrion, suggesting a link with Alzheimer disease. Shows a preference for cleavage after small polar residues and before basic residues, but without any positional preference.
    • Tissue specificity

      Widely expressed. Expressed at higher level in muscle and heart compared to brain, pancreas, liver, lung and placenta.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the peptidase M16 family. PreP subfamily.
    • Post-translational

      The disulfide bond may lock the enzyme in a closed conformation under oxidized conditions, suggesting that it may participate in redox regulation of the enzyme.
    • Cellular localization

      Mitochondrion matrix.

    • PITRM1 was immunoprecipitated from HEK-293T (human epithelial cell line from embryonic kidney transformed with large T antigen) whole cell lysate (1.0 mg per IP reaction; 20% of IP loaded) using ab241986 at 6 µg per reaction. Western blot was performed from the immunoprecipitate using ab241986 at 0.4 µg/ml.
