Complex I subunit NDUFB8 monoclonal antibody

Catalog No. MS105

$325.00 - 100 µg

UniProt Number: O95169
Alternate Names: NADH dehydrogenase [ubiquinone] 1 beta subcomplex subunit 8, NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase ASHI subunit, Complex I-ASHI, CI-ASHI, NDUFB8
Structure and Function: There are 45 unique subunits of Complex I, and this subunit is 188 AA long. Previously, based on MW and isoelectric point on gels, MS105 was tentatively identified as likely reacting against subunit ND6; mass spectrometry now confirms identification of it as subunit NDUFB8. It is thought that this subunit does not contribute to catalytic functions of Complex I.

Figure 1. Isolated mitochondria from human heart (lane 1), bovine heart (lane 2), rat heart (lane 3), and mouse heart (lane 4), detected with (MS105) anti-NDUFB8 antibody. Extra bands in the mouse sample (lane 4) are due to the reaction of the IgG-specific goat anti-mouse secondary antibody with residual mouse blood in the heart tissue, as it is very difficult to entirely remove the blood from these small organs.
