All three proteins of 87 kDa, 89 kDa, and 80 kDa can be detected in immunoblot analysis with this antibody.
Mitofilin is a transmembrane protein of the inner mitochondrial membrane and it is associated with a large multimeric protein complex of about 1200 kDa. Mitofilin has critical functions in mitochondrial morphology and mitochondrial fusion and fission, specifically in the formation of tubular cristae and cristae junctions. Abnormal mitochondrial morphology has been implicated in many human diseases such as myopathy, cardiomyopathy, rhabdomyosarcoma and Whartin's tumor.
