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.

Mitochondria, the site of cellular energy production, must import all proteins necessary for their function. Import is mediated by two mechanisms: the translocase of the outer membrane (Tom) and the translocase of the inner membrane (Tim). Tim23 and Tim17 are integral membrane proteins that associate to form the import channel for mitochondrial preproteins that contain N-terminal hydrophilic sequences. They also associate with Tim44, an adaptor for the membrane binding of mtHsp70, a matrix heat shock protein, which drives the import of the processed preprotein. The N-terminal intermembrane space domain of Tim23 contains a leucine zipper motif and mediates the formation of a Tim23 dimer. As an imported protein passes through the TOM machinery, its N-terminal matrix targeting sequence interacts with the Tim23 dimer. This induces the dissociation of the dimer and initiation of inner membrane translocation of the presequence. In addition to its 9 kDa N-terminal hydrophilic segment, Tim23 contains a 14 kDa hydrophobic domain with four predicted membrane spans. Thus, Tim23 is an important integral membrane component of the mitochondrial protein translocation machinery.

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.
