Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
mitofusin2, mitofusin 2, mitofusin-2, MFN2, CMT2A, CMT2A2, CPRP1, HSG, KIAA0214, MARF
Mitofusin 2 (Mfn 2) is mostly expressed in the heart and muscle tissues. It is a transmembrane protein that mediates mitochondria fusion and plays a central role in the maintenance of mitochondrial morphology. A GTPase domain is required for the function of Mitofusin proteins. Mutations in Mfn2 can lead to Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a common inherited disorder of the peripheral nervous system. Mfn2 may also be associated with obesity and/or apoptosis.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding amino acid 719 of human Mitofusin 2
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 68 kDa and 86 kDa bands from samples of human, mouse, rat origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
