This antibody contains enough material to conduct 10 mini-Western blots.
DNA methyltransferases methylate the 5-position of cytosine in the context of CpG dinucleotides. DNA methylation is crucial for normal embryonic development, imprinting, and X-chromosome inactivation. Methyl CpG binding proteins (MeCPs) specifically recognize methylated regions of DNA and repress transcription both directly and by association with known corepressor proteins which include members of the Sin3 and histone deactylase protein families.
