  • 製品の概要

    ab110411  contains 5 mAbs, one each against Complex I subunit NDUFB8 (ab110242), Complex II subunit 30kDa (ab14714), Complex III subunit Core 2 (ab14745), Complex IV subunit II (ab110258), and ATP synthase subunit alpha (ab14748) as an optimized premixed cocktail. The cocktail is suitable for Western Blotting analysis of the relative levels of the 5 OXPHOS complexes in mitochondrial preparations from human sources.

    Altered levels of assembly can arise from mutations in individual subunits, mutations in assembly factors for the complex(es), mtDNA depletion or as a result of physiological and or pathological changes e.g. hormone treatment, exercise, diet or oxidative stress.

    The mAbs in the cocktail were chosen because they are against a subunit that is labile when its complex is not assembled. Moreover, the combination is readily resolved in SDS-PAGE when the appropriate gel conditions are used (Please refer to application notes).

    The Western blot cocktail is supplied at a concentration of 1.5 mg/mL.

    The five antibodies provided in the cocktail are all mouse monoclonal antibodies.

    We recommend using a high pH CAPS buffer / PVDF transfer protocol when using this antibody for Western blot. Please contact us for more details.

    Due to a policy change, the previously provided control for this kit has been removed.

Thank you for contacting us.

The answer is yes, you can use reducing reagent in the sample but we do not recommend boiling samples since it will cause signal reducing of several bands.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for your enquiry.

I am pleased to help answer your questions:

1. what do you mean by labile protein for the differents complexes? are they degraded or found in the cytoplasm?

Several of the proteins are degraded, some more rapidly than others. We recently made a lysate product to compliment this product – a lysate of rho0 cells (lacking mitochondrial DNA), and the loss of these proteins as they are degraded can be observed.
Hela-Rho0 treated and control Whole Cell Lysate (ab154479)
https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=154479 (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=154479).

2. Is a mitochondrial extraction necessary?
No, whole cell lysate using SDS-PAGE western blot buffer will be good enough.

3. Is there a pharmacological treatment that you would recomand as a positive control to monitor complex deficiency? eg: rotenon, oligomycin,....?
An agent to remove mtDNA would be useful. For example EtBr, DDC or to prevent mtDNA expressed protein translation such as chloramphenicol and several other antibiotics.

These agents act over several cell doublings resulting in the removal of mtDNA encoded proteins which are degraded. The inhibitors you mention may be a bit potent – inhibiting the enzymes first before an effect is seen on protein expression/turnover.

I hope this information will be helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your enquiry. It has taken some time to confirm all the details for you, and I appreciate your patience.

I am sorry to confirm that MS602 has been discontinued and we do not have anymore in stock.

Although that product is not available any longer, there is ab110411, Total OXPHOS Human WB Antibody Cocktail and ab110416, Pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) WB Antibody Cocktail, however as the name suggests they have only been tested in WB, not IHC-P.

If you would like to considering trying to recreate the original antibody cocktail,I have listed the individual components are below.

https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=110330 (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=110330).

As there are several components, we would be able to offer you a discount if you wish to purchase all of these products together. I am forwarding this to our bulk orders team who will be able to provide a quote for you.

Otherwise, I am sorry there is nothing else to suggest that would be a suitable replacement on this occasion.

I hope this will be helpful. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

The link below shows the genes in the mitochondrial DNA. This is a very comprehensive review.


There are 37 mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA)- encoded genes which include seven subunits of complex I (ND1, 2, 3, 4, 4L, 5 and 6), one subunit of complex III (cytochrome b (Cyt b)), three subunits of complex IV (Cyt c oxidase (COX) I, II and III), two subunits of complex V (A6 and A8), two rRNAs (12S and 16S) and 22 tRNAs (one-letter code).

For product ab110411, proteins are as follows:

Complex I = NDUFB8 – Nuclear encoded

Complex II = SDHB – Nuclear encoded

Complex III = UQCRC2 – Nuclear encoded

Complex IV = MTCO2 – Mitochondrial encoded

ATPase = ATP5A – Nuclear encoded

Total OXPHOS antibody cocktail

Excellent Excellent 5/5 (Ease of Use)
In this experiment we used isolated mitochondria from human HCT116 colon cancer cell line. The proteins from the mitochondrial lysate were seperated on a 13% SDS gel. The total OXPHOS human WB antibody kit was diluted 1:1000 in 2% milk. We already obtained strong signals of the complexes V and I after 10 sec. After 1 min (attached figure) we got signals from all five complexes.

The kit is easy to use and gives reproducibly results.

Thank you for your reply.

I can understand why you find the nomenclature a bit confusing and we will certainly strive in the future to make the nomenclature on our datasheets more consistent by ensuring that the full name is added to the target alongside the acronym.

However, the current nomenclature is the standard in the field. COX is the short name for Cytochrome c Oxidase and not for Complex. If you look in the Uniprot page the recommended name is Cytochrome c oxidase subunit 2 with the following acronyms (MT-CO2, COII, COXII, MTCO2). On the other hand Complex II is denoted in the field as SDH (Succinate dehydrogenase). In Uniprot you will find the different subunits as SDH followed by a letter or number to denote the subunit number.

See Uniprot

P00403 (COX2_HUMAN) - http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/P00403



Recommended name:
Cytochrome c oxidase subunit 2

P31040 (DHSA_HUMAN) - http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/P31040



Recommended name:
Succinate dehydrogenase [ubiquinone] flavoprotein subunit, mitochondrial

I hope this information is helpful and wish you a good weekend.
