Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

Many mitochondrial proteins are encoded by nuclear genes and synthesized in the cytosol as pre-proteins. These pre-proteins are targeted to the mitochondria where they are translocated across the outer and inner membranes of the mitochondria. At the outer membrane of the mitochondria, this process requires a multiprotein complex called the Translocase of the Outer Membrane of the mitochondria (TOM). The TOM complex includes receptor components, Tom20, 22, 37, and 70, as well as a multisubunit general import pore complex of 400 kDa. Tom20 contains a hydrophobic N-terminal region that anchors it to the outer membrane of the mitochondria, and a cytosolic region that contains a domain that facilitates binding to the basic amphiphilic targeting sequences of pre-proteins and a tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) motif involved in interactions with Tom70. In yeast, Tom20 and Tom22 mediate the import of all pre-proteins known to use the general import machinery of the mitochondria. Thus, Tom20 is an important receptor for many mitochondrial pre-proteins that use the outer mitochondrial translocation complex.

Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
