Background of mtTFA

TFAM (Transcription factor A, mitochondrial), also known as TCF6 or TCF6L2, is a 162-amino acid protein that activates transcription of each mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) strand by binding to an element of approximately 30 nucleotides present in both the light-strand and the heavy-strand promoters. By Southern blot analysis of restriction enzyme digests of human/Chinese hamster somatic cell hybrid lines, Milatovich et al. (1992) mapped TFAM sequences, which they called MTTF1, to 3 different chromosomes: chromosomes 10, 7p, and 11q. By PCR-based screening of a somatic cell hybrid panel and by fluorescence in situ hybridization, Scott (2007) stated that the sequences mapped to chromosomes 7p (TCF6L1) and 11q (MTTF1, or TCF6L3) are pseudogenes. Larsson et al. (1997) mapped the mouse mitochondrial transcription factor A gene (Tfam) to the central part of mouse chromosome 10. This region exhibits syntenic homology with human 10q21. Mitochondrial transcription factor A is a key activator of mitochondrial transcription in mammals. It also has a role in mitochondrial DNA replication, since transcription generates an RNA primer necessary for initiation of mtDNA replication.

From what I have seen in literature lymphocyte does express TFAM. From what I have seen in, TFAM is expressed in female gonad, hepatoma, tongue, lymphocyte, cervix carcinoma, cervix carcinoma erythroleukemia, among other tissues. Regarding which tissues have TFAM expression, here are a few articles citing expression in various tissues:
Cervix carcinoma, Pubmed ID: 18669648
Cervix carcinoma, and Erythroleukemia, Pubmed ID: 23186163
Lymphocyte, Pubmed ID: 1610904
Tongue, Pubmed ID: 14702039

My team were happy with the WB result of your anti-mtTFA antibody (monoclonal, 4D9). However we have been able to see positive staining in lymphocyte mitochondrion using this antibody. Is that expected? Could you tell me where is TFAM supposed to be expressed?

Our lab used your anti-mtTFA antibody (monoclonal, 4D9) for Flow Cytometry on cervix carcinoma a few years ago. I am using human, and We intend to use the antibody for WB next. Our lab want to know about examining cervix carcinoma as well as female gonad in our next experiment. Could you please give me some suggestion on which antibody would work the best for WB?

I looked at the website and datasheets of our anti-mtTFA antibody (monoclonal, 4D9) and I see that M01119-1 has been validated on human in both Flow Cytometry and WB. Thus M01119-1 should work for your application. Our Boster satisfaction guarantee will cover this product for WB in human even if the specific tissue type has not been validated. We do have a comprehensive range of products for WB detection and you can check out our website to find out more information about them.

We are currently using anti-mtTFA antibody (monoclonal, 4D9) M01119-1 for human tissue, and we are satisfied with the Flow Cytometry results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human. Is it possible that the antibody can work on dog tissues as well?

The anti-mtTFA antibody (monoclonal, 4D9) (M01119-1) has not been tested for cross reactivity specifically with dog tissues, though there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in dog you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.
