Monoclonal Antibody to MBD1 (Clone: ABM15H2)
MBD1 (Methyl-CpG-Binding Domain Protein 1) protein is a primary candidate for the readout of DNA methylation as it recruits chromatin remodelers, histone deacetylases and methylases to methylated DNA associated with gene repression. This protein, a member of a transcriptional repressor family MBD, is predominantly expressed in neurons. MBD protein binding requires both functional MBD domains and methyl-CpGs; however, some MBD proteins also bind unmethylated DNA and active regulatory regions via alternative regulatory domains or interaction with the NuRD/Mi-2 (Nucleosome Remodeling Deacetylase) complex members. The CXXC3 domain of MBD1 makes it a unique member of the MBD family due to its affinity to unmethylated DNA. MBD1 acts as an epigenetic regulator via different mechanisms, such as the formation of the MCAF1/MBD1/SETDB1 complex or the MBD1-HDAC3 complex. It also plays an important role in disease progression, contributes to the drug resistance of PC cells; however, the mechanism underlying the drug resistance endowed by MBD1 remains unknown.
|Purification :||Protein G Chromatography|
|Content :||25 µg in 50 µl/100 µg in 200 µl PBS containing 0.05% BSA and 0.05% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.|
|Storage condition :||Store the antibody at 4°C, stable for 6 months. For long-term storage, store at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze and thaw cycles.|
Western blot analysis: 2-4 µg/ml, Immunohistochemical analysis: 5 µg/ml, Facs analysis:.0.5-1 µg/10^6 Cells
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic/therapeutics procedures.
|Subcellular location:||Nucleus, Nucleus matrix, Nucleus speckle, Chromosome|
|Post transnational modification:||Sumoylated with SUMO1 by PIAS1 and PIAS3. Sumoylation affects transcriptional silencing by preventing the interaction with SETDB1. In contrast, sumoylation may increase interaction with AFT7IP.|
|Tissue Specificity:||Widely expressed.|
|BioGrid:||110322. 30 interactions.|
