See references for more information. Individual optimization may be required.

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.

Immunogen

This DNMT3A antibody was raised against a recombinant protein corresponding to amino acids 1-247 of mouse DNMT3A.

Buffer

Purified IgG in 70 mM Tris (pH 8), 105 mM NaCl, 31 mM glycine, 0.07 mM EDTA, 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.

Background

DNMT3ADNA methyltransferase proteins such as DNMT3A (or DNMT 3A) are involved in DNA methylation, in which a methyl group is added to a cytosine residue on DNA, commonly at the C5 position of a CpG dinucleotide. DNMT3A has been shown to be important in the regulation of specific patterns of DNA methylation. Methylation of mammalian DNA has long been recognized to play a major role in a number of cellular functions such as embryonic development, genetic imprinting, X chromosome inactivation and control of gene expression. DNA methylation is generally associated with transcriptional repression.

Three families of DNMTs have been identified: DNMT1, DNMT2 and DNMT3. The DNMT3 family, containing two active methyltransferases, DNMT3A & DNMT3B, and one DNMT3-Like protein (DNMT3L), establishes the initial CpG methylation pattern de novo and shows the same propensity for methylating unmethylated duplex DNA as for hemi-methylated DNA. DNMT3A and DNMT3B are encoded by two distinct genes and are strongly expressed in embryonic stem cells. DNMT3A is ubiquitous in mammalian cells.

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.
