- Description of Target:
- Ferrochelatase is localized to the mitochondrion where it catalyzes the insertion of the ferrous form of iron into protoporphyrin IX in the heme synthesis pathway. Defects in ferrochelatase are associated with protoporphyria.Ferrochelatase is localized to the mitochondrion where it catalyzes the insertion of the ferrous form of iron into protoporphyrin IX in the heme synthesis pathway. Defects in ferrochelatase are associated with protoporphyria. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

How do Aviva's reagents play a role in your experimental goals?
These are the new target genes that I am testing with reasonable results. They may be included in our upcoming publication.
How would you rate this antibody on a scale from 1-5 (5=best) and why?
4 due to reasonable specificity (FECH), 3 due to poor signal intensity.
Have you used another antibody which has worked in your application?
Yes, ARP41683 (QC12324-90414) for FECH and OxPhos cocktail antibody (MitoSci) for SDHB.
Do you believe the information about the reagent on Aviva's website is correct?
If the antibody works, do you plan to use it in future experiments or to publish your data? Why or why not?
No (see below).
How did you store the antibody after re-suspension?
4 degree C.
Sample Description (please include 1) species type, and 2) cell/tissue type, and 3) how much protein loaded for each lane of your gel):
Mitochondria from mouse liver, brain and heart (6 ug proteins each lane).
How many different experimental trials were conducted using the antibody sample?
More than three each antibody.
How was this sample prepared?
Mitochondria were isolated from fresh intact mouse tissues with homogenization in Isolation Buffer (225 mM mannitol, 75 mM sucrose, 1 mM EGTA, 5 mM HEPES, 1 mg/mL BSA) and mitochondria-rich organelles pellets being washed in Resuspension Buffer (250 mM sucrose, 0.1 mM EGTA, 5 mM HEPES).
