Purest mitochondria preparation. Mitochondria were prepared by different protocols. Amounts of COX I (mitochondria) and KDEL (endoplasmic reticulum) in the mitochondrial fractions obtained using differential centrifugation (DC), Mitochondria Isolation Kit, human, and ultracentrifugation (UC) were analyzed by Western blotting.
Compared to DC and UC, mitochondria isolated with the Mitochondria Isolation Kit, human have no detectable contamination with ER. (Courtesy of Dr. H.-T. Hornig-Do, Newcastle, UK)

Specifications for Mitochondria Isolation Kit, human

Overview

The Mitochondria Isolation Kit, human facilitates the isolation of functional and viable mitochondria from human cells or tissue. The isolation protocol is based on the renowned MACS Technology, which enables fast isolation of high purity and high yield mitochondria.

Detailed product information

The Mitochondria MidiMACS Starting Kit, human includes:
  • 1 Mitochondria Isolation Kit, human
  • 1 MidiMACS Separator
  • 1 MACS MultiStand
The Mitochondria QuadroMACS Starting Kit, human includes:
  • 1 Mitochondria Isolation Kit, human
  • 1 QuadroMACS Separator
  • 1 MACS MultiStand

Detailed procedure

After cell lysis, mitochondria are magnetically labeled with Anti-TOM22 MicroBeads, human, which bind to the translocase of the outer mitochondrial membrane 22 protein (TOM22). The sample is loaded onto an LS Column placed in a MidiMACS or QuadroMACS Separator. After washing, only magnetically labeled mitochondria are retained on the column. The column is removed from the separator and functional human mitochondria are eluted from the column.

Downstream applications

After isolation mitochondria can be further subjected to Western blot analysis
