Name: SDHB Monoclonal Antibody clone EP288
Description and applications: Succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) is Complex II in the mitochondria, vital for mitochondrial electron transport, as well as Krebs cycle function. SDH catalyzes the oxidation of succinate to fumarate and transfers electrons to ubiquinone through the coordination of its four subunits (SDHA, SDHB, SDHC, and SDHD). The SDH complex functions as a tumor suppressor. Loss of any subunit proteins lead to destabilization of the complex and tumor formation. SDH subunit B (SDHB) is ubiquitously expressed in normal tissues. Germline mutations in SDHB, SDHC, or SDHD genes predisposes development of phaeochromocytoma, paraganglioma and gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). SDHB immunohistochemistry is helpful in identification of phaeochromocytomas, paragangliomas or GIST with SDHB mutation.
