for MeCP2 antibody (pAb)Application Notes


Validated Applications:
WB: 1 - 2 µg/ml dilution

For optimal results, primary antibody incubations should be performed at room temperature. The addition of 0.1% Tween 20 to all Blotto solutions may also reduce background. Individual optimization may be required.

for MeCP2 antibody (pAb)Immunogen

This MeCP2 antibody was raised against a mixture of synthetic peptides corresponding to amino acid residues 11-25 and 181-195 of human MeCP2.

for MeCP2 antibody (pAb)Buffer

PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.

The analysis was performed using HeLa whole-cell extract and MeCP2 pAb at a 2 µg/ml dilution.

for MeCP2 antibody (pAb)Background

Methylation of mammalian DNA has long been recognized to play a major role in a number of cellular functions such as development and control of gene expression. It is generally associated with the repressive chromatin state. The complex series of events leading to this repressive state involve the coordinated regulation of DNA methyltransferases and two other groups of proteins called the Methyl-CpG binding proteins (MBD proteins) and the Kaiso family of proteins. The MBD family of proteins include MeCP2, MBD1, MBD2, MBD3 and MBD4. MeCP2 (methyl-CpG binding protein 2) can repress transcription by recruiting the Sin3 complex including histone deacetylases (HDACs). MeCP2 is distributed throughout the nucleus in human cells.

for MeCP2 antibody (pAb)Positive Control

Active Motif's HeLa whole-cell extract (Catalog No. 40050) can be used as a positive control for MeCP2 antibody.

for MeCP2 antibody (pAb)Storage

Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.

for MeCP2 antibody (pAb)Guarantee

This product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.

This product is for research use only and is not for use in diagnostic procedures.
