Mitochondria are dynamic organelles that continuously divide and fuse, and their dynamics/distribution is critical for their role in bioenergetics and cell survival. Mitochondrial fusion process is mediated by mitofusin 1 (MFN1) and mitofusin 2 (MFN2) proteins in the outer membrane as well as OPA1 in the inner mitochondrial membrane. MFN1 is an essential transmembrane GTPase critical to mitochondrial fusion; acts independently of the cytoskeleton, and its overexpression induces formation of mitochondrial networks. MFN1 forms homo-/-heteromultimers (with MFN2), and the multimerization has been proposed to be essential for mitochondrion fusion. MFN1 interacts with VAT1 and is ubiquitinated by MARCH5. A mutation in the GTPase domain disrupts the mitochondrial fusion activity of MFN1/MFN2 and loss of MFN1/2 leads to mitochondrial dysfunction mediated embryonic lethality in mice. MFN proteins have been reported to regulate mitochondrial membrane potential, while silencing of MFN1/2 resulte in mitochondrial fragmentation and increased apoptotic sensitivity.

FAQs for Mitofusin 1 Antibody (NBP1-71775). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQs).
Could you please tell me if you'd offer the mitofusin 1 antibody Cat# NBP1-71775 for using it with rat tissue? If not, could you please offer one that works with rats?
NBP1-71775 has been validated for use in human and mouse only. Rat is not one of the listed species and we cannot guarantee that it will work in rat. Unfortunately, we currently do not have a Mitofusin-1 antibody that has been tested and validated for use in rat. If you'd be interested in testing one of our antibodies, we can recommend our Innovator's Reward program. Our Innovator's Reward is offered to reward researchers for testing new species and applications with our products. If testing on this antibody is performed on an untested species and/or application, and the results are shared, then the antibody is eligible for the nnovator's Reward. Under this program, Novus will provide you a credit of equal or lesser value on a future product of equal value in exchange for your new data in the form of an online review. The great thing is you are eligible even if the antibody doesn't work because the data is still useful to us. (Note: Rat was added as a species on the datasheet from a researcher who published using rat in May 2013 - please see PMID 23658809 for details).
