This antibody was generated against a synthetic peptide corresponding to a fragment of human CARM1. It is expected to specifically recognize the CRAM1. In certain type of cells, like Hela, double bands can be detected with this antibody. This may due to the additional PTM sites in cells themselves.
Protein arginine N-methyltransferases, such as CARM1, catalyze the transfer of a methyl group from S-adenosyl-L-methionine to the side chain nitrogens of arginine residues within proteins to form methylated arginine derivatives and S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine. Protein arginine methylation has been implicated in DNA packaging, transcription regulation, signal transduction, mRNA stability, metabolism of nascent pre-RNA, and transcriptional activation. Tissue specificity: Overexpressed in prostate adenocarcinomas and high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia.
