Background

MBD2 (methyl-CpG binding domain protein 2) is thought to function as a mediator of the biological consequences of DNA methylation. 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. MBD2 is a transcriptional repressor which is associated with histone deacetylases (HDAC) in the Sin3 and the MeCP1 complexes in mammalian cells. The HDAC complexes, also containing MBD3 and MeCP2, are involved in packaging the genomic DNA into inactive chromatin.

Positive Control

Active Motif's HeLa nuclear extract (Catalog No. 36010) can be used as a positive control for MBD2 antibody.
