The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 45 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 45 kDa).
1/10 - 1/100.
1/250 - 1/500. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol. Heat up to 98 degrees C, below boiling, and then let cool for 10-20 min.
FunctionInvolved in the regulation of homocysteine metabolism. Converts betaine and homocysteine to dimethylglycine and methionine, respectively. This reaction is also required for the irreversible oxidation of choline.
Tissue specificityFound exclusively in liver and kidney.
PathwayAmine and polyamine degradation; betaine degradation; sarcosine from betaine: step 1/2. Amino-acid biosynthesis; L-methionine biosynthesis via de novo pathway; L-methionine from L-homocysteine (BhmT route): step 1/1.
