MSA07 ApoTrack™ Cytochrome c Apoptosis Kit
for Immunocytochemistry

Brief Description & Uses

Contains a cytochrome c monoclonal antibody (50 g) and an isotype-specific secondary antibody (50 g) which has a fluorescein fluorophore conjugated to it.

Apoptotic cells which have released mitochondrial cytochrome c into the cytosol can be differentiated from non apoptotic cells which still retain cytochrome c in their mitochondria by fluorescence microscopy. The kit also contains an anti-Complex V α monoclonal antibody (50 g) and the appropriate isotype-specific secondary antibody (50 g) which has a Texas Red fluorophore conjugated to it. Complex V is an inner mitochondrial membrane protein and serves as a mitochondrial marker since it is not released into the cytoplasm during apoptosis, unlike cytochrome c. Thus one is able to observe cytochrome c and a mitochondrial marker (Complex Vα) simultaneously by fluorescence microscopy using MSA07. Buffers and blocking solution for immunocytochemical analysis are also included in the kit.


Product: ApoTrack™ Apoptosis Detection Kit
Kit Components: 50 g Cytochrome c monoclonal antibody, 50 g Complex V subunit α monoclonal antibody, 50 g goat anti-mouse IgG2a-FITC and 50 g goat anti-mouse IgG2b-TXRD. Buffer components.
Catalog #: MSA07
Lot #:
Monoclonal antibodies raised in mouse: cytochrome c monoclonal antibody (clone 37BA11)
Complex V α monoclonal antibody (clone 15H4C4)
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: 2 g/ml anti-Cytochrome C mab; 2 g/ml anti-Complex V α mab;
2 g/ml anti-mouse IgG2a-FITC; 2 g/ml anti-mouse IgG2b-TXRD
Applications: Immunocytochemistry analysis of cytochrome c and a mitochondrial marker in apoptotic and non-apoptotic cells.
Antigen Species Cross-Reactivity: human, bovine, rat, mouse and C. elegans
Storage: The two monoclonal antibodies should be stored at 4C. The two fluorophore-conjugated secondary antibodies should be stored, away from light, at 4C. The goat serum should be stored at -20C. The other components in the kit can be stored at room temperature.
Country of Origin: USA
