This PINK1 antibody is useful for IHC and ICC/IF. Prior to immunostaining paraffin tissues, antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended. In Simple Western only 10-15 uL of the recommended dilution is used per data point.
PINK1 (PTEN induced putative kinase 1) is a mitochondrial serine/threonine kinase which maintains mitochondrial function/integrity, provides protection against mitochondrial dysfunction during cellular stress, potentially by phosphorylating mitochondrial proteins, and is involved in the clearance of damaged mitochondria via selective autophagy (mitophagy). PINK1 is synthesized as a 63 kD protein which undergoes proteolytic processing to generate at least two cleaved forms (55 kD and 42 kD). PINK1 and its substrates have been found in the cytosol as well as in different sub-mitochondrial compartments, and according to the recent reports; PINK1 may be targeted to OMM (outer mitochondrial membrane) with its kinase domain facing the cytosol, providing a possible explanation for the observed physical interaction with the cytosolic E3 ubiquitin ligase Parkin. Defective PINK1 may cause alterations in processing, stability, localization and activity as well as binding to substrates/interaction-partners which ultimately leads to differential effects on mitochondrial function and morphology. Mutations in PINK1 are linked to autosomal recessive early onset Parkinson's disease, and are associated with loss of protective function, mitochondrial dysfunction, aggregation of alpha-synuclein, as well as proteasome dysfunction.

FAQs for PINK1 (2)
In the immunohistochemistry paraffin section protocol....the PBS buffer....should it be at certain pH?
For IHC application, different labs cites the pH of PBS buffer in the range of 7.1 - 7.6 but most commonly used pH is pH 7.4 (this is what we use in our lab). You may use this PBS (pH 7.4) for making permeablization buffer, antibody diluent buffers and for making wash buffer. For more on the protocol that we use in our lab and for IHC-P troubleshooting suggestions, you may visit: IHC-P Protocol and IHC-P Troubleshooting.
I was wondering what does Format 7C mean as far as anitbodies go?
7C is a fluorophore - it is useful for FLOW. The details of the fluor are (A=425, E=500)
