Immunofluorescent analysis of Phalloidin (orange) and Cytochrome c (green) in NIH 3T3 cells. Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with 2% BSA (Product # 37525) in PBS + 0.1% Triton X-100 for 30 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with a Cytochrome c monoclonal antibody (Product # MA5-11823) at a dilution of 1:75 for at least 1 hour at room temperature, washed with PBS, and incubated with DyLight 488 goat anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody (Product # 35502) at a dilution of 1:250 for 30 minutes at room temperature. Actin was stained with DyLight 550 Phalloidin (Product # 21835) at a dilution of 1:120 (2.5 units/ml final concentration) and nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst (Product # 62249) at a concentration of 1ug/ml for 30 minutes. Images were taken on a Zeiss Axio Observer Z1 microscope at 20X magnification.

MA5-11820 targets Cytochrome c in ELISA, FACS, ICC/IF and IP applications and shows reactivity with Bovine, Canine, Equine, Mouse and Human samples.
The MA5-11820 immunogen is equine cytochrome c.
Cytochrome c is an electron transporting protein that resides within the inter-membrane space of the mitochondria, where it plays a critical role in the process of oxidative phosphorylation and production of cellular ATP. An increasing amount of interest has been directed toward the role which cytocrome c has been demonstrated to play in apoptotic processes. Following exposure to apoptotic stimuli, cytochrome c is rapidly released from the mitochondria into the cytosol, an event which may be required for the completion of apoptosis in some systems. Cytosolic cytochrome c functions in the activation of caspase-3, and ICE family molecule that is a key effector of apoptosis.
