- Description of Target:
- MFN2 is a mitochondrial membrane protein that participates in mitochondrial fusion and contributes to the maintenance and operation of the mitochondrial network. It is involved in the regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation, and it may play a role in the pathophysiology of obesity. Mutations in this gene cause Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2A2, and hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy VI, which are both disorders of the peripheral nervous system. Defects in this gene have also been associated with early-onset stroke.This gene encodes a mitochondrial membrane protein that participates in mitochondrial fusion and contributes to the maintenance and operation of the mitochondrial network.

Defects in this gene have also been associated with early-onset stroke. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified.

HeLa, WTMEF (wild type mouse embryonic fibrolast), and JNK (c-jun N-terminal kinase) k/o MEFs were grown to 90% confluency in p35. Cells were washed twice with ice-cold PBS and 100ul of lysis buffer (50mM Tris-HCl pH 7.8, 150mM NaCl, 1% NP-40, 0.2% Sodium deoxycholate) containing protease and phosphatase inhibitors were added to each well. The plates were incubated rocking at 4˚C for 5 minutes. Cells were scrapped with cell scrapper and were sonicated for 30 seconds. Cell lysate was left on ice for 5 minutes and centrifuged at 15,000rpm for 15 minutes. The supernatant obtained was collected in new tube and stored at -80˚C.
BCA assay was done to determine the protein concentration. 25ug of protein was mixed with 6X loading dye. The protein sample was denatured by heating at 95˚C for 5 minutes. The sample was left on ice for 5 minutes.
The samples were loaded on the gel and ran at 100V. Protein was transferred to the nitrocellulose membrane by wet transfer. The transfer was done at 100V for 90 mins. The membrane was washed with water and incubated with blocking buffer (0.1% TBS, 5%BSA), rocking for one hour at RT. It was incubated O/N with primary antibody (1:500) in blocking buffer (0.1% TBST, 5% BSA) at 4°C. Loading control was used in the ratio of 1:10000.
After incubation, the membrane was washed 3X with 0.1% TBST, rocking for 10 minutes at RT. It was incubated with secondary antibody (LICOR anti-rabbit) in the ratio of 1:15000 in blocking buffer (0.1% TBST, 5% BSA) for 1 hour at room temperature. The membrane was washed as before and scanned in the Odyssey scanner.
