Application Notes


Validated Applications:
WB: 1:500 - 1:1,000 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.

Immunogen

This PRMT6 antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to amino acids within the N-terminal region of PRMT6.

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

PRMT6 (Protein Arginine Methyltransferase 6, HRMT1L6, ANM6) is a type I arginine methyltransferase. Arginine methylation is a common post-translational modification of histones and other cellular proteins. PRMT6 preferentially methylates arginine residues present in GAR (glycine and arginine-rich) domains. PRMT6 asymmetrically dimethylates histone H3 at Arg2, which is mutually exclusive to methylation at lysine 4 (associated with transcriptional activation), and thus PRMT6 serves as a transcriptional repressor in this context. It can also symmetrically dimethylate H2A and H4 at Arg3 and serves as a coactivator of transcription in concert with nuclear receptors.

Positive Control

Active Motif's HeLa nuclear extract (Catalog No. 36010) can be used as a positive control for PRMT6 antibody.

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.

Guarantee

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