KGA Antibody (IJ-2) is a high quality monoclonal KGA antibody (also designated KGA antibody) suitable for the detection of the KGA protein of human origin. KGA Antibody (IJ-2) is available as the non-conjugated anti-KGA antibody. Glutamine is an important molecule involved in several cellular functions, including nitrogen and carbon transport, hepatic urea synthesis, renal ammoniagenesis, and gluconeogenesis. Glutamine is catabolized by either the liver-type (LGA) or kidney-type (KGA) glutaminase. KGA is mitochondrial specific protein whose expression in kidney is increased during metabolic acidosis. This process is mediated by an 8-base AU-sequence in KGA that functions as a pH-response element. The human KGA gene maps to chromosome 2, and produces three isoforms, designated KGA, GAC, and GAM, by alternative splicing. KGA is synthesized as a cytosolic protein that is transported to the mitochondria as an intermediate protein, and is further cleaved into the KGA isoform and the GAC isoform. The processing of the GAM isoform is unclear. The KGA isoform is abundant in brain and kidney, while the GAC isoform is principally expressed in cardiac muscle and pancreas. The GAM isoform is solely expressed in cardiac and skeletal muscle.

I am using KGA (IJ-2): sc-100533 for immunofluorescence, what dilution of this antibody should I use?
Asked by: jenni
Thank you for your question. We recommend a starting dilution of 1:50. However, optimal antibody concentration should be determined by titration. Please find our full immunofluorescence protocol here:
