Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
Purification The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name OPA1 (OPA1 Antibody Abstract)
Background Three major GTP-binding protein families include trimeric and low molecular weight G-proteins, as well as a family of large proteins homologous to dynamin. The dynamin family contains proteins with diverse structure and function, but highly homologous N-terminal GTPase domains. A subgroup of the dynamin G-protein-binding family includes the mitochondrial proteins Drp1/Dnm1, Mgm1, and OPA1. The latter protein is mutated in dominant optic atrophy, a disease that involves loss of visual acuity and atrophy of the optic nerve. OPA1 is expressed in heart, brain, liver, and kidney. The sequence of OPA1 includes an N-terminal region that contains a mitochondrial targeting domain and three GTP-binding motifs. The overexpression of OPA1 in Cos-7 cells shows co-localization with cytochrome c in mitochondria, and leads to alterations in mitochondrial morphology from a characteristic tubuluar shape to a vesicular pattern. Thus, OPA1 may have roles in mitochondrial biogenesis that are critical for normal cell function. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.
