Manual & Protocol | Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

Minute™ Mitochondria Isolation Kit for Mammalian Cells and Tissues is composed of optimized buffers and protein extraction filter cartridges with 2.0 ml collection tubes. The kit is designed to rapidly isolate native mitochondria proteins from cultured mammalian cells or tissues. Due to the use of protein extraction filter cartridges, the protein isolation procedure is simple and provides a high yield. The procedure can be completed in less than 30 minutes. Unlike many commercial mitochondria preparation kits, this kit offers a wide range of starting cells and isolated mitochondria. The buffers are detergent and EDTA free. A Dounce homogenizer or a tissue blender is not needed.

Figure 1. Enrichment of Mitochondrial Marker (Ubiquinol-Cytochrome C Reductase Core Protein) with Minute™ Mitochondria Isolation Kit. 

 A. SDS-PAGE profiles of total protein extract vs. isolated mitochondrial proteins. Lanes 1, 3, 5, total proteins from isolated mouse kidney cells, mouse skeletal muscle and liver tissues, respectively. Lanes 2, 4, 6, isolated mitochondrial proteins from mouse kidney cells, mouse skeletal muscle and liver tissues, respectively.

 B. Western blotting. Proteins in A were transferred to nitrocellulose membranes and probed with anti-ubiquinol-cytochrome C reductase core protein (ab96333, abcam, Cambridge, MA) and anti-lamin B1 (ab16048, a nuclear envelope marker protein. abcam, Cambridge, MA). 

 C. Densitometry measurement of mitochondrial marker signals.
