for MBD3 antibody (mAb) (Clone 106B691)Application Notes

Validated Applications:
WB: 1 - 2 µg/ml dilution

For optimal results, primary antibody incubations should be performed at room temperature. The addition of 0.1% Tween 20 to all Blotto solutions may also reduce background. Individual optimization may be required.

for MBD3 antibody (mAb) (Clone 106B691)Background

MBD3 (methyl-CpG binding domain protein 3) is a subunit of the NuRD, a multi-subunit complex containing nucleosome remodeling and histone deacetylase activities. Methylation of mammalian DNA has long been recognized to play a major role in a number of cellular functions such as development and control of gene expression. It is generally associated with the repressive chromatin state. The complex series of events leading to this repressive state involve the coordinated regulation of DNA methyltransferases and two other groups of proteins called the Methyl-CpG binding proteins (MBD proteins) and the Kaiso family of proteins. The MBD family of proteins include MeCP2, MBD1, MBD2, MBD3 and MBD4. MBD3 regulates transcription by forming a Mi-2/NuRD complex with nucleosome remodeling and histone deacetylase (HDAC) activities in mammalian cells. MBD3 has been shown to interact not with 5-methylcytidine methylated DNA but with DNA containing 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) methylation. MDB3 co-localizes with TET1 and is required for normal levels of 5-hmC in embryonic stem cells.

Active Motif's HeLa whole-cell extract (Catalog No. 40050) can be used as a positive control for MBD3 antibody.

for MBD3 antibody (mAb) (Clone 106B691)Storage

Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.

for MBD3 antibody (mAb) (Clone 106B691)Guarantee

This product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.

This product is for research use only and is not for use in diagnostic procedures.
