    Reacts with: Species independent
  • Immunogen

    Methylated Lysine conjugated to KLH.

  • Positive control
    • HCL (0.1N) extracted and acetone precipited histone fraction



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab23366 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
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Do not use milk for any of the buffers as complex milk proteins may contain competitive methylated proteins. Use BSA instead. ab23366 incubation time 2h RT. If no or weak signal is obtained overnight at 4deg might help.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • 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.

The short answer is that there is no predicted MW for this antibody to detect in WB. This antibody will detect any protein of any size that has a methylated lysine. Therefore, depending on your sample you may see no bands, many bands, a smear, e...

Thank you for your reply.

I can confirm that ab23366 does not recognize free BSA or BSA-linked with methylarginine.

I hope this information is helpful and wish you good luck with your experiments.

Thank you for your inquiry.

I apologize for the delay in my answer. It took some time to pull the data for lot GR32966-7.

I am happy to confirm that we tested lot GR32966-7 not in a peptide array buton the single amino acid linked t...

Thank you for your reply.

Based on the available information, any of those antibodies would work for you, but I would recommend ab21623.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

Please find the answers to your question below:

1 - For ab21623, it will recognize proteins acetylated on lysine residues. For ab23366, it will recognize proteins methylated on lysine residues (mono- ...
