Anti-Mitofusin 2 is produced in rabbit using as immunogen a synthetic peptide corresponding to human mitofusin 2 with an N-terminal added cysteine, conjugated to KLH. Mitofusins (Mfn1 and Mfn2) form homotypic and heterotypic complexes for fusion in mitochondria.
Mitofusin-2 (MFN2) is an outer mitochondrial membrane protein.
synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues 557-576 of human mitofusin 2 with an N-terminal added cysteine, conjugated to KLH. The corresponding sequence differs by one and two amino acids in rat and mouse mitofusin 2, respectively.
Anti-Mitofusin 2 antibody produced in rabbit has been used for Western blotting.
Anti-Mitofusin 2 antibody has been used in immunoblotting. It may also be used in immunoprecipitation.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.

MFN2 is essential for the maintenance of mitochondrial network and controls mitochondrial metabolism. Mfn2-dependent regulatory mechanism is disturbed in obesity by reduced Mfn2 expression. Mutations in MFN2 cause Charcot Marie-Tooth neuropathy type 2A, a neurological disorder that results from degeneration of axons in peripheral nerves.
Mitofusin-2 (MFN2) plays an important role as a mitochondrial fusion protein and participates in many cell processes. It is mainly involved in regulating metabolic processes in the mitochondria. MFN2 prevents the formation of reactive oxygen species and controls endoplasmic reticulum stress. Mutations in the gene encoding this protein have been linked to diabetes and obesity.
