MMSET / WHSC1 antibody (mAb) tested by ChIP-Seq.
ChIP was performed using the ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit (Cat. No. 53040) with chromatin from a human multiple myeloma cell line (4.5 million cells) and 10 µl of antibody. ChIP DNA was sequenced on the Illumina HiSeq and 23 million sequence tags were mapped to identify MMSET binding patterns. The panel on the left shows binding across 12 million bp on chromosome 12. The panel on the right is zoomed in to show individual peaks.

for MMSET / WHSC1 antibody (mAb) (Clone 29D1)Background

MMSET (Multiple Myeloma SET domain-containing protein) / WHSC1 (Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome Candidate 1; also known as NSD2, Nuclear Receptor binding SET domain protein 2; TRX5, Trithorax 5) is a SET domain-containing histone methyltransferase specific for lysine 36 of histone H3. The MMSET / WHSC1 gene is deleted in Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a disorder characterized by developmental defects and mental retardation. In 15% of patients with Multiple Myeloma (MM), a chromosomal translocation leads to MMSET / WHSC1 gene being aberrantly placed under the control of the IgH intronic µ enhancer and expressed at very high levels. This event is apparently a key component in cellular transformation leading to MM. Reduction in MMSET / WHSC1 expression in a myeloma cell line suppressed its growth, suggesting a role for MMSET in maintaining the transformed state.

Chromatin IP Assays

This antibody has been validated for use in ChIP and/or ChIP-Seq, and can be used with Active Motif's ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit or our magnetic bead-based ChIP-IT® Express Kits. For an overview of all of our ChIP products, please visit our Chromatin IP Page to learn about ChIP products designed for use with MMSET / WHSC1 antibody (mAb).

Bridging Antibody to Improve ChIP, MeDIP and IP

Some isotypes of mouse IgG antibodies do not bind well to protein G-conjugated agarose/magnetic beads, which are commonly used in ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments. Capture efficiency can be improved by including an anti-mouse IgG bridging antibody because it binds with a strong affinity to both the protein G beads and the mouse IgG antibody. By increasing the affinity of the mouse primary antibody for the protein G bead, the Bridging Antibody for Mouse IgG can help improve the results of all ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments that use MMSET / WHSC1 antibody (mAb).

Compatible Secondary Antibodies

Active Motif has developed a variety of high-quality secondary antibodies for most applications, with anti-rabbit and anti-mouse conjugates to a broad line of high-quality fluorescent molecules, as well as horse radish peroxidase (HRP). Visit our Secondary Antibody Conjugates page to find the perfect secondaries for immunofluorescence experiments with MMSET / WHSC1 antibody (mAb).

for MMSET / WHSC1 antibody (mAb) (Clone 29D1)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.
