The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent dilution. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 136 kDa).
MCAF1 is a recruiter that couples transcriptional factors to general transcription apparatus and thereby modulates transcription regulation and chromatin formation. It can act both as an activator or a repressor depending on the context. It mediates MBD1-dependent transcriptional repression, probably by recruiting complexes containing SETDB1. MCAF1 is required to stimulate histone methyltransferase activity of SETDB1 and facilitate the conversion of dimethylated to trimethylated H3 'Lys-9'. The complex formed with MBD1 and SETDB1 represses transcription and couples DNA methylation and histone 'Lys-9' trimethylation.
