Rabbit anti Human TSPO antibody recognizes TSPO, also known as translocator protein, benzodiazepine peripheral binding site, mitochondrial benzodiazepine receptor or peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptor.

Present mainly in the mitochondrial compartment of peripheral tissues, the protein encoded by TSPO interacts with some benzodiazepines and has different affinities than its endogenous counterpart. The protein is a key factor in the flow of cholesterol into mitochondria to permit the initiation of steroid hormone synthesis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been reported; one of the variants lacks an internal exon and is considered non-coding, and the other variants encode the same protein (provided by RefSeq, Feb 2012).

Rabbit anti Human TSPO antibody detects a band of 18 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.

Instructions For Use
Please refer to the PrecisionAb western blotting protocol. For additional information on secondary antibody dilution and exposure time see product web page.

Positive Control Lysate

Lysate Composition
400μg C2C12 lysate lyophilized in RIPA buffer
Lysate Reconstitution
- If using DDT reconstitute the lyophilized lysate with 190μl DI H2O, add 200μl 2x Laemmli Sample Buffer and 10μl 2M DTT.
- If using BME reconstitute the lyophilized lysate with 180μl DI H2O, add 200μl 2x Laemmli Sample Buffer and 20μl BME.
Heat at 95°C for 5 minutes. For 10 well mini gels load 25μl. For other gel and comb formats please refer to the PrecisionAb western blotting protocol.
