In addition to its well-known role in electron transport, cytochrome c (CYT) has been identified as a mediator of apoptosis or programmed cell death (1). Cytochrome c translocates from mitochondria into the cytoplasm in the early phases of apoptosis and plays a role in initiation of the apoptotic proteolytic cascade by activating caspase-3 (2). Cytochrome c has been shown to bind Apaf-1. Apaf-1 has also been shown to activate capase-3 (3).

Synthetic peptides corresponding to amino acids 1-80, 81-104 and 66-104 of pigeon CYT were used as the immunogen (Jemmerson et al. 1991). The antibody recognizes an epitope within amino acids 93-104 of pigeon Cytochrome c. based on competitive ELISA results (Jemmerson et al. 1991).

Application Notes
1. An ~15 kDa band is observed. 2. This antibody recognizes total cytochrome C which includes both apocytochrome c (i.e. cytochrome c in the cytosol without heme attached) and holocytochrome c (i.e. cytochrome c in the mitochondria with heme attached).
