Anti-N6-methyladenosine (m6a) antibody (ab151230)

Overview

  • Product nameAnti-N6-methyladenosine (m6a) antibody
    See all N6-methyladenosine (m6a) primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to N6-methyladenosine (m6a)
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: A wide range of mammals
  • Immunogen

    Chemical/ Small Molecule corresponding to N6-methyladenosine (m6a) (methyl + + ). KLH-conjugated N6-methyladenosine (m6a).

  • Positive control
    • ab151230 was tested on a oligonucleotide array against RNA oligomers; N6-methyladenosine (m6a) and unmodified adenosine. 2Ome-RNA oligomers carry a methyl group at the 2’-OH residue of the ribose molecule, making them resistant to most ribonucleases.
  • General notes

    N6-methyladenosine (m6A) is a post-transcriptional modification of RNA. m6A modification has been identified in all classes of RNA (rRNA, tRNA and mRNA) and is catalysed by an evolutionary conserved multi-subunit enzyme, methyltransferase like 3 (METTL3). Cellular and viral RNA has been known to be methylated for decades. Recent studies have found that mRNA is predominately m6A modified at stop codons and long internal exons, which are conserved between mouse and human. Emerging evidence suggests m6A plays an important role in regulating gene expression, alternative splicing patterns, downstream signalling (p53) as well as apoptosis.

    The regulation of m6A modifications in mRNA has been linked to disease, where fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) has been has been reported to be a obesity risk gene. FTO is a m6A demethylase and polymorphisms that result in increased FTO expression are associated with increased body mass and risk of obesity.

Anti-N6-methyladenosine (m6a) antibody images

  • All batches of ab151230 are tested in Nucleotide Array against N6-methyladenosine (m6a) and unmodified adenosine. Six dilutions of each oligomer are printed on to the Array in triplicate and results are averaged before being plotted on to a graph. Results show strong binding to N6-methyladenosine, indicating that this antibody specifically recognises adenosine methylated at position N6.

Product Wall

The nucleotide array was performed using 2'-O-methyl-modified ribonucleotides, printed on to nitrocellulose-coated slides (the 2'-O-methyl-modification makes the oligos resistant to most ribonucleases). This array was then probed with the primary antib...
