for MeCP2 antibody (pAb)Application Notes

Validated Applications:
WB: 1:10,000 - 1:50,000 dilution

Note: many chromatin-bound proteins are not soluble in a low salt nuclear extract and fractionate to the pellet. Therefore, we recommend a High Salt / Sonication Protocol when preparing nuclear extracts for Western Blot.

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 acid extract (Catalog No. 36200) 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.
