The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 29 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionCatalyzes the N-methylation of tryptamine and structurally related compounds.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed. The highest levels were in thyroid, adrenal gland, adult and fetal lung. Intermediate levels in heart, placenta, skeletal muscle, testis, small intestine, pancreas, stomach, spinal cord, lymph node and trachea. Very low levels in adult and fetal kidney and liver, in adult spleen, thymus, ovary, colon and bone marrow. Not expressed in peripheral blood leukocytes and brain.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NNMT/PNMT/TEMT family.
