Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab23841 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes

Target

  • Function
    UCP are mitochondrial transporter proteins that create proton leaks across the inner mitochondrial membrane, thus uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation from ATP synthesis. As a result, energy is dissipated in the form of heat.
  • Tissue specificity
    Brown adipose tissue.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the mitochondrial carrier family.
    Contains 3 Solcar repeats.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion inner membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links
  • Form
    UCP1 is preferentially expressed in brown adipose tissue
  • Alternative names
    • mitochondrial brown fat uncoupling protein antibody
    • Mitochondrial brown fat uncoupling protein 1 antibody
    • SLC25A7 antibody
    • Solute carrier family 25 member 7 antibody
    • Thermogenin antibody
    • UCP 1 antibody
    • UCP antibody
    • UCP1 antibody
    • UCP1_HUMAN antibody
    • uncoupling protein 1 (mitochondrial, proton carrier) antibody
    • Uncoupling protein 1 antibody

    Predicted band size: 33 kDa
    Observed band size: 33 kDa
    Additional bands at: 100 kDa, 50 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.


    Exposure time: 30 seconds
  • ab23841 staining UCP1 in serial sections of white fat from mice by immunohistochemistry. Serial sections were de-paraffinized, rehydrated through xylene, ethanol and water; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in blocking buffer) for 60 minutes. A HRP-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody.

Answer

Thank you for your inquiry.


We do not currently offer this antibody directly conjugated to a fluorophore.I could see if the lab would be able to generate this for you, but we do not carry Alexa Fluors. We may be able to provide this service if you order in bulk (>10 units) with a Cy5 conjugation. If you would be interested in this, please email my colleage Andrea who handles bulk requests at mailto:us.sales@abcam.com.


Alternatively, you could do the labeling yourself using one of our 3-step EasyLink conjugation kits. Again, we don't carry Alexa Fluors, but you would be able to label Cy5.

In order to use the conjugation kit, like ab102879 ($335.00), with UCP1 ab23841, you would first need to remove some of the BSA in the antibody as this can interfere with the labeling reaction. See our FAQs:

https://www.abcam.com/EasyLink-Cy5-5-Conjugation-Kit-3-x-100%C2%B5g-Cy5-5-ab102879.html


You can remove the BSA using a purification kit like ab102783 (1 purification, $221.00) or ab102784 (3 purifications, $438.00).
