Gene Name NDUFA1
Protein Name NADH dehydrogenase[ubiquinone] 1 alpha subcomplex subunit 1
Molecular Weight 8072 MW
Protein Function Accessory subunit of the mitochondrial membrane respiratory chain NADH dehydrogenase (Complex I), that is believed not to be involved in catalysis. Complex I functions in the transfer of electrons from NADH to the respiratory chain. The immediate electron acceptor for the enzyme is believed to be ubiquinone.
Tissue Specificity Primarily expressed in heart and skeletal muscle.
Subcellular Localization Mitochondrion inner membrane; Single-pass membrane protein; Matrix side.
Uniprot ID O15239
Alternative Names NADH dehydrogenase [ubiquinone] 1 alpha subcomplex subunit 1;Complex I-MWFE;CI-MWFE;NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase MWFE subunit;NDUFA1;

Background for NADH dehydrogenase[ubiquinone] 1 alpha subcomplex subunit 1

NDUFA1(NADH-UBIQUINONE OXIDOREDUCTASE 1 ALPHA SUBCOMPLEX, 1), also called MWFE, B. TAURUS, HOMOLOG OF, encodes a subunit of mitochondrial NADH: ubiquinone oxidoreductase, also known as mitochondrial complex I. The NDUFA1 gene is mapped to chromosome Xq24. The deduced polypeptide sequence of NDUFA1 was found to have an N-terminal hydrophobic domain, likely to be a transmembrane domain, and a C-terminal hydrophilic domain. And the NDUFA1 gene contains 3 exons and spans about 5.0 kb of genomic DNA. Complementation with hamster Ndufa1 cDNA restored the rotenone-sensitive complex I activity of these mutant cells to approximately 100% of the parent cell activity. The findings established that the MWFE polypeptide is absolutely essential for an active complex I in mammals. The NDUFA1 peptide is one of about 31 components of the "hydrophobic protein"(HP) fraction of complex I which is involved in proton translocation. Thus the NDUFA1 peptide may also participate in that function.

Customer Q&As

Q: Do you offer BSA-free antibodies? Keyword: Bovine serum albumin, carrier protein, conjugation
A: Yes, please contact us at for more information about BSA-free antibodies and availability. The new BSA-free formula uses trehalose as a replacement to BSA. We have tested many alternative chemicals and found that trehalose protects the antibodies the best.
Q: Is your western blot protocol provided from the website applicable for all your antibodies? Keyword: applications, WB
A: The protocol is applicable for all our antibodies in WB, the NC Membrane(0.45μm or 0.22μm) and transfer time(70 mins or 50 mins) depends on the protein molecular weight, details can be found in included protocol.
Q: Can I conjugate markers to this antibody? Can I link custom conjugates to this antibody? Keyword: conjugation
A: The antibody is stored with BSA and cannot be conjugated with markers. Carrier free antibodies are available upon request. Please contact
Q: What should I use for negative control?
A: Please contact us for negative control suggestions. You can also check expression databases such as genecards, uniprot etc. Due to logistic reasons, we do not sell serum or lysates that we use internally for positive or negative control.
Q: Where can I find troubleshooting information? What should I do if I have unexpected bands, high background, no signal, weak signal
A: You can find Boster's troubleshoot guides under tech support tab. Please contact us for further assistance on troubleshooting your experiment.
Q: What is the immunogen sequence of this antibody? Is this antibody polyclonal or monoclonal?
A: You can find the immunogen sequence under "Immunogen" and clonality in the product name.
Q: What is the expected band size? Why is it different than the observed band size?
A: The expected band size is predicted on the size of the protein. The actual band size may be affected by a few other factors including but not limited to:
1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands

3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.

4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
Q: What is the suggested dilution ratio for Western Blot (WB), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and or ELISA standards? What is the optimal pH for the sample?
A: Check the datasheet for the product for details on dilution ratios for different experiments. You can find the datasheet button on the right side of the product page.
Q: What is the protocol you used for your Western blotting (WB) and Immunohistochemistry (IHC)?
A: Check our protocols under the tech support tab.
