Applications

Western Blot Validated

Application Notes

Applications Validated by Active Motif:
WB*: 1:500 - 1:2,000 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.

Background

MBD1 (methyl-CpG binding domain protein 1) is thought to function as a mediator of the biological consequences of DNA methylation. 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. MBD1 is recruited to both methylated and non-methylated CpGs via separate domains: the CXXC domain targets the protein to non-methylated CpGs whereas the MBD domain targets the protein to methylated CpG. During S phase of the cell cycle, MBD1 can interact with SETDB1 (H3K9 methyltransferase).

Positive Control

Active Motif's HeLa whole-cell extract (Catalog No. 40050) can be used as a positive control for MBD1 antibody.
