Brief Description & Uses

100 g of monoclonal antibody reactive against the 18 kDa COX (Complex IV) subunit IV. MS408 also labels COX IV in immunocytochemical applications. Reacts only with human and bovine, but better than MS407 for immunocytochemistry in these species. Isolated mitochondria are available from several species for use as control samples.

Variations in the synthesis of cytochrome c oxidase subunits from the two genomes (mitochondrial and nuclear) have been described as markers for several cancers including those of the prostate, and thyroid. Additionally this ratio has been reported to identify areas of the brain damaged in Alzheimer’s disease and also to relate to the overall regulation of mitochondrial biogenesis in exercise and diet. To examine this ratio in immunocytochemistry we offer two mAbs against mitochondrially encoded subunits I and II (MS404 and MS405, respectively) and mAbs against two nuclear encoded subunits IV and Va (MS408 and MS409, respectively). The latter two are retained in mitochondria exhibiting heterolpasmy or mosaiscism of altered mtDNA transcription e.g. in anti-retroviral therapy. Therefore an immunocytochemical study using a combination of subunits I or II alongside IV or Va could reveal changes in the levels of mtDNA or mtDNA encoded proteins.
