Product Specific Information
PA1-887 detects methyl CpG binding protein 2 (MeCP2) from human, mouse and rat tissues and cells.
PA1-887 has been successfully used in Western blot, IHC-P, immunofluorescence and immunoprecipitation procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~56 kDa protein representing MeCP2 from AtT20 cell extract.
PA1-887 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 1-15 from mouse MeCP2. This sequence is completely conserved in human MeCP2. PA1-887 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-120) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
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.
