Cytochrome c oxidase is the terminal enzyme of the mitochondrial respiratory chain. It is a multi-subunit enzyme complex that couples the transfer of electrons from cytochrome c to molecular oxygen and contributes to a proton electrochemical gradient across the inner mitochondrial membrane. The complex consists of 13 mitochondrial- and nuclear-encoded subunits. The mitochondrially-encoded subunits perform the electron transfer and proton pumping activities. The functions of the nuclear-encoded subunits are unknown but they may play a role in the regulation and assembly of the complex. This gene encodes the nuclear-encoded subunit IV isoform 1 of the human mitochondrial respiratory chain enzyme. It is located at the 3' of the NOC4 gene in a head-to-head orientation, and shares a promoter with it.Description: The IB52C31H10 monoclonal antibody recognizes human COX IV. COX IV, also known as cytochrome c oxidase (COX) or Complex IV, is the terminal complex of the electron transport chain. COX IV is encoded by nuclear DNA and localized to the inner mitochondrial membrane. COX IV functions in energy metabolism and shuttles electrons from cytochrome c to oxygen. Dysfunction in COX IV is associated with increased production of reactive oxygen species and cellular toxicity. Genetic defects in COX IV results in severe, often fatal metabolic disorders that primarily affect tissues with high energy demands such as heart, brain, and muscle.Applications Reported: This IB52C31H10 antibody has been reported for use in microscopy, immunohistochemical staining, immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue sections, and immunohistochemical staining of formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections.Applications Tested: This IB52C31H10 antibody has been tested by immunocytochemistry of MeOH-fixed human cells and can be used at less than or equal to 10μg/mL. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 519 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
