SpecificityThis antibody recognizes proteins methylated on lysine residues (mono and di-methylysine). It does not cross-react with acetylated proteins. Cross-reactivity to trimethyllysine has not been tested.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/50 - 1/100.
RelevanceMany proteins are post translationally modified. Modifications such as phosphorylation, glycosylation, ubiquitination and methylation have been shown to play an important role in the development, physiology and disease of animals and plants.
Histone lysine methylation is regarded as a very stable modification with important functions in epigenetic gene control and for organizing chromatin domains.
