Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. 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.

Three major GTP-binding protein families include trimeric and low molecular weight G-proteins, as well as a family of large proteins homologous to dynamin. The dynamin family contains proteins with diverse structure and function, but highly homologous N-terminal GTPase domains. A subgroup of the dynamin G-protein-binding family includes the mitochondrial proteins Drp1/Dnm1, Mgm1, and OPA1. The latter protein is mutated in dominant optic atrophy, a disease that involves loss of visual acuity and atrophy of the optic nerve. OPA1 is expressed in heart, brain, liver, and kidney. The sequence of OPA1 includes an N-terminal region that contains a mitochondrial targeting domain and three GTP-binding motifs. The overexpression of OPA1 in Cos-7 cells shows co-localization with cytochrome c in mitochondria, and leads to alterations in mitochondrial morphology from a characteristic tubuluar shape to a vesicular pattern. Thus, OPA1 may have roles in mitochondrial biogenesis that are critical for normal cell function.

This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.  Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Purified
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.
