Related Product Information for anti-FXN antibody

   Elemental iron is required for a variety of normal cellular functions and vital for proper growth and development. However, natural iron is quite insoluble and excess iron is harmful, since it can catalyze the formation of potentially damaging reactive oxygen species. Humans also have very limited capacity to excrete iron. Therefore, cells have developed mechanisms to improve solubility of iron and to control intracellular iron levels at the point of absorption in the intestine and other tissue. Several proteins including Ferritin, transferrin (Tf), transferrin receptors (TfRs), and iron regulatory proteins (IRPs), iron transporter (NRMAP2/DMT1/DCT1) etc. play a key role in iron metabolism. Some genes involved in iron-metabolism are associated with genetic disorders such as Friedreich's Ataxia (Frataxin), genetic hemochromatosis (HFE), and Sex-linked anemia (Hephaestin). Friedrich ataxia (FA), a degenerative disease characterized by progressive ataxia and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy leading to premature death, is cause by a deficiency in frataxin (Fxn). Fxn (mouse 207 aa, human 210 aa major isoform A; alternatively transcribed minor forms A1, 196 aa, and 171-aa isoform B) is a nuclear-encoded and highly conserved mitochondrial membrane protein. Fxn is expressed in tissues with highly metabolic activity, such as heart, liver, and brown fat. In FA, Fxn levels are greatly reduced due to inhibition of its transcription by expansion of an intronic GAA repeat. Defects in yeast Fxn produce mitochondria iron-overload. It is suggested that Fxn could play a role in mitochondrial iron storage.

 NCBI Summary for FXN    This nuclear gene encodes a mitochondrial protein which belongs to FRATAXIN family. The protein functions in regulating mitochondrial iron transport and respiration. The expansion of intronic trinucleotide repeat GAA results in Friedreich ataxia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for FXN    FXN: Promotes the biosynthesis of heme and assembly and repair of iron-sulfur clusters by delivering Fe(2+) to proteins involved in these pathways. May play a role in the protection against iron-catalyzed oxidative stress through its ability to catalyze the oxidation of Fe(2+) to Fe(3+); the oligomeric form but not the monomeric form has in vitro ferroxidase activity. May be able to store large amounts of iron in the form of a ferrihydrite mineral by oligomerization; however, the physiological relevance is unsure as reports are conflicting and the function has only been shown using heterologous overexpression systems. Modulates the RNA-binding activity of ACO1. Defects in FXN are the cause of Friedreich ataxia (FRDA). FRDA is an autosomal recessive, progressive degenerative disease characterized by neurodegeneration and cardiomyopathy it is the most common inherited ataxia. The disorder is usually manifest before adolescence and is generally characterized by incoordination of limb movements, dysarthria, nystagmus, diminished or absent tendon reflexes, Babinski sign, impairment of position and vibratory senses, scoliosis, pes cavus, and hammer toe. In most patients, FRDA is due to GAA triplet repeat expansions in the first intron of the frataxin gene. But in some cases the disease is due to mutations in the coding region. Belongs to the frataxin family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.

 Research Articles on FXN    1. these results suggest an important role for eEF1A2 in driving cap-independent translation of utrophin A in skeletal muscle.
2. there is a a severe depletion of CTCF in the 5'UTR of the FXN gene in FRDA, and coincident heterochromatin formation involving the +1 nucleosome via enrichment of H3K9me3 and recruitment of heterochromatin protein 1
3. Data show that -terminus region is flexible and intrinsically unfolded in human frataxin.
4. frataxin deficiency triggers inflammatory changes and death of Schwann cells that is inhibitable by inflammatory and anti-apoptotic drugs.
5. Molecular genetic studies revealed that all Friedreich's ataxia patients in the Paphos district of Cyprus had the most common mutation, a homozygous expansion of the GAA triplet repeat in the first intron of the frataxin gene.
6. Azelaoyl PAF significantly increases the intracellular frataxin levels by twofold in the neuroblastoma cell line SKNBE and fibroblasts from FRDA patients and Azelaoyl PAF increases frataxin protein through a transcriptional mechanism.
7. The PPARG pathway is dysregulated in frataxin deficient mice and Friedreich's ataxia patients.
8. Regulatory effects of recombinant human erythropoietin occur at the post-translational level.
9. identification nof a novel point mutation (c.165 + 1 G ] A) which involves the consensus GT dinucleotide in the 3'splice acceptor site of intron 1 of the frataxin gene in two compound heterozygous siblings with Friedreich ataxia
10. We did not find any mutations or polymorphisms, nor expansion of the intronic trinucleotide repeat of the frataxin gene in refractory anemia with ring sideroblasts
