ab115343 is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay to determine the levels of phospho S232 PDHA1 protein in cell and tissue lysates. The assay employs a mouse antibody specific for PDHA1 protein coated on a 96-well plate. Samples are pipetted into the wells and PDHA1 protein present in the sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and a rabbit anti-phospho S232 PDHA1 protein detector antibody is added. After washing away unbound detector antibody, HRP-conjugated anti-rabbit antibody is pipetted into the wells. The wells are again washed, an HRP substrate solution (TMB) is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of phospho S232 PDHA1 protein bound. The developing blue color is measured at 600 nm. Optionally the reaction can be stopped by adding hydrochloric acid which changes the color from blue to yellow and the intensity can be measured at 450 nm.
Store all components at 4°C. The kits are stable for at least 6
months. Unused microplate strips should be returned to the pouch
containing the desiccant and resealed.
Storage instructionsStore at +4°C. Please refer to protocols.

FunctionThe pyruvate dehydrogenase complex catalyzes the overall conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA and CO(2). It contains multiple copies of three enzymatic components: pyruvate dehydrogenase (E1), dihydrolipoamide acetyltransferase (E2) and lipoamide dehydrogenase (E3).
Involvement in diseaseDefects in PDHA1 are a cause of pyruvate decarboxylase E1 component deficiency (PDHE1 deficiency) [MIM:312170]. PDHE1 deficiency is the most common enzyme defect in patients with primary lactic acidosis. It is associated with variable clinical phenotypes ranging from neonatal death to prolonged survival complicated by developmental delay, seizures, ataxia, apnea, and in some cases to an X-linked form of Leigh syndrome (X-LS).
Defects in PDHA1 are the cause of X-linked Leigh syndrome (X-LS) [MIM:308930]. X-LS is an early-onset progressive neurodegenerative disorder with a characteristic neuropathology consisting of focal, bilateral lesions in one or more areas of the central nervous system, including the brainstem, thalamus, basal ganglia, cerebellum, and spinal cord. The lesions are areas of demyelination, gliosis, necrosis, spongiosis, or capillary proliferation. Clinical symptoms depend on which areas of the central nervous system are involved. The most common underlying cause is a defect in oxidative phosphorylation. LS may be a feature of a deficiency of any of the mitochondrial respiratory chain complexes.

SimpleStep ELISA kits
The PDHA1 bound from undosed HeLa cells was subject to in-well kinase treatment (PDK1&3) or in-well phosphatase treatment (PDP1) according to the supplementary protocol shown below. Untreated cells showed a significant endogenous phosphorylation signal at S232 which is only slightly increased by kinase treatment. Conversely phosphatase treatment was able to significantly reduce the phospho S232 signal from the endogenous levels.
HeLa cells were cultured for 4 hours in media supplemented with DCA (20mM) to specifically inhibit mitochondrial PDH kinases, or NaF (20mM), a general inhibitor of serine/threonine protein phosphatases. The DCA treatment reduced the level of phospho S232. Conversely NaF treatment, to inhibit cellular serine phosphatases, increased the phosphorylation level of S232.
Example control sample curve for HepG2 cell extract. The phosphorylation state of PDHA1 can vary by treatment but also by cell culture conditions such as media supplements, nutrients and also cell density.
