Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Transcription factor A, MtTF1, TCF6, TCF6L2, mtTFA
Transcription factor A mitochondria (TFAM) is an important activator of mitochondrial DNA transcription and replication. Studies in mice have shown that TFAM is required to regulate the mitochondrial genome copy number and is important for embryonic development. TFAM has been associated with mitochondrial disorder which includes ocular myopathy and muscular wasting in humans. Kearns-Sayre syndrome was shown in mouse model when expression of the gene was eliminated by targeted disruption in heart and muscle cells.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding amino acid 225 of rat TFAM

Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 27 kDa band from rat kidney tissue lysate. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
