Background Information

MTHFD1L(Monofunctional C1-tetrahydrofolate synthase, mitochondrial) is also named as FTHFSDC1(Formyltetrahydrofolate synthetase). MTHFD1L enzyme is present in mitochondria from normal embryonic tissues and embryonic fibroblast cell lines, and embryonic mitochondria possess the ability to synthesize formate from glycine. It catalyzes the final step in the mitochondrial conversion of 1-C units to formate in embryos. Moreover, MTHFD1L levels were substantially higher in embryonic mitochondria than in adult liver mitochondria and embryonic mitochondria exhibited greater formate production(PMID:19948730). It has 2 isoforms produced by alternative splicing.

I am satisfied with the antibody. It worked as I was expecting from it. I would buy it again. I also add a figure showing chemiluminescence detection of MTHFD1L using your antibody.
