Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab60129 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 0.25 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 26 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 26 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent dilution.


  • Tissue specificityExpressed in liver.
  • PathwayAmine and polyamine biosynthesis; creatine biosynthesis; creatine from L-arginine and glycine: step 2/2.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in GAMT are the cause of guanidinoacetate methyltransferase deficiency (GAMT deficiency) [MIM:612736]. GAMT deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by developmental delay/regression, mental retardation, severe disturbance of expressive and cognitive speech, intractable seizures and movement disturbances, severe depletion of creatine/phosphocreatine in the brain, and accumulation of guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) in brain and body fluids.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the RMT2 methyltransferase family.

    Additional bands at : 58 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
  • ICC/IF image of ab60129 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab60129, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
