This 5-Methylcytosine (5-mC) antibody was raised against 5-Methyl-cytidine conjugated to KLH and recognizes 5-Methylcytosine.
Purified IgG in PBS with 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.
5-Methylcytosine (5-Methylcytidine) is a modified base that is found in the DNA of plants and vertebrates. DNA methylation is an epigenetic event in which DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) catalyze the reaction of a methyl group to the fifth carbon of cytosine in a CpG dinucleotide. This modification helps to control gene expression and is also involved in genomic imprinting, while aberrant DNA methylation is often associated with disease. The 5-methylcytosine antibody has been developed to discriminate between the modified base and its normal cytosine counterpart, allowing for gene promoter methylation analysis.
Active Motif's Human Positive Control Primer Set ZC3H13 (Cat. No. 71009) and Human Negative Control Primer Set 1 (Cat. No. 71001) have been validated for performing qPCR and endpoint PCR when this antibody has been used for ChIP on human samples. For ChIP experiments with this antibody on mouse samples, the Mouse Negative Control Primer Set 1 (Cat. No. 71011) has been validated for both qPCR and endpoint PCR.
