  • FunctionInvolved in the cellular defense against the biological effects of O6-methylguanine (O6-MeG) in DNA. Repairs alkylated guanine in DNA by stoichiometrically transferring the alkyl group at the O-6 position to a cysteine residue in the enzyme. This is a suicide reaction: the enzyme is irreversibly inactivated.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the MGMT family.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus.

  • ab69629 staining MGMT in T98G human glioma cell line by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence. Cells were fixed in paraformaldehyde and permeabilized in 0.1% Triton X-100 prior to blocking in 3% BSA for 30 minutes at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/100 and incubated with the sample for 1 hour at 20°C. The secondary antibody was Alexa Fluor® 555-conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal, diluted 1/300. MGMT staining is shown in red (AF 555) and stains nuclei and to a small extent, cytoplasm. Nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue), while microtubules were stained using an anti-tubulin FITC conjugate (green).
