This 3-methylcytosine antibody was raised against 3-methylcytidine conjugated to KLH and recognizes 3-methylcytosine .


Rabbit serum containing 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.


3-Methylcytosine (3-mC, 3-methylcytidine) antibody tested by dot blot analysis.
BSA conjugated nucleosides (starting at 10 ng as indicated) were spotted onto PVDF membrane and blotted with 3-methylcytidine antibody at a dilution of 1:10,000.
Lane 1: 3-methylcytidine.
Lane 2: Cytidine.
Lane 3: 5-methylcytidine.
Lane 4: 5-hydroxymethylcytodine.


Methylation of DNA can occur non-enzymatically at the nitrogen-three of the cytosine base through spontaneous exposure to endogenous S-adenosyl methionine (SAM). The resulting 3-methylcytosine (3-mC) is mutagenic and must be repaired, which occurs in humans through the base excision repair (BER) or dealkylation via human homologues of the E. coli AlkB protein. 3-methylcytosine is present in human cell lines and increased levels of 3-mC impair proliferation.
