Brief Description & Uses

Contains 300 g or 600 g of 5 mAbs against CI subunit NDUFB8 (MS105), CII-30kDa (MS203), CIII-Core protein 2 (MS304) CIV subunit I (MS404) and CV α subunit (MS507) respectively as an optimized premixed cocktail. (MS105 was previously listed as likely CI-ND6). The kit is suitable for Western Blotting analysis of the relative levels of the 5 OXPHOS complexes in mitochondrial preparations from mouse sources.

Altered levels of assembly can arise from mutations in individual subunits, mutations in assembly factors for the complex(es), mtDNA depletion or as a result of physiological and or pathological changes e.g. hormone treatment, exercise, diet or oxidative stress.

The mAbs in the cocktail were chosen because they are against a subunit that is labile when its complex is not assembled. Moreover, the combination is readily resolved in SDS-PAGE when the appropriate gel conditions are used (see protocols). Note Mouse tissue samples can easily be contaminated with antibodies from the animal's blood. To avoid such background bands, use MS604 in conjunction with a secondary against native antibodies e.g. True blot ( Also, COXI is a highly hydrophobic protein and appears as a broad band at ~35 kDa (not at its true molecular weight at 57 kDa). It is very sensitive to heating. Therefore, the samples, including the positive control, should not be heated over 50°C before loaded on the gel (see image below).


Product: MitoProfile Rodent Total OXPHOS Complexes
Detection Kit
Kit Components: Premixed cocktail containing 5 monoclonal antibodies (see Table below), mouse control.
Catalog #: MS604
Lot #:
Host Species: Mouse
Concentration: 1.5 mg/mL in HEPES-Buffered Saline (HBS) with 0.02% azide as a preservative.
Purity: Near homogeneity as judged by SDS-PAGE. The antibodies were produced in vitro using hybridomas grown in serum-free medium, and then purified by biochemical fractionation.
Suggested Working Concentration: The antibody cocktail (1.5 mg/mL) should be diluted 250x to a final working concentration of 6.0 g/mL for Western blotting
Applications: Western blotting detection of enzyme purity or for OXPHOS complex deficiency detection.
Antigen Species Cross-Reactivity: Mouse, Rat, also Human, Bovine
Storage: 4C
