  • Primary antibody notes
    Arginine methylation is an irreversible post translational modification which has only recently been linked to protein activity. At least three types of PRMT enzymes have been identified in mammalian cells. These enzymes have been shown to have essential regulatory functions by methylation of key proteins in several fundamental areas. These protein include nuclear proteins (Histone-2A, 3, 4), IL enhancer binding factor, nuclear factors (NF-45, -90, ILF3, Nucleolin, STAT1, Poly(A)-binding protein II), cell cycle proteins (phosphoprotein phosphatase 2A), signal transduction proteins (FGF2, Fibrillarin, FN, INFAR1, Jak, MBP, Src-adaptor Sam68), apoptosis proteins (FADD, ICE-like protease), and viral proteins (Hepatitis C NS3 RNA Helicase, HIV TAR). The mammalian PRMT family currently consists of 5 members that share two large domains of homology. Outside of these domains, epitopes were identified and antibodies against all five PRMT members have been developed. These antibodies can be utilized to explore arginine methylation and its regulatory functions.

Target

  • Function
    Arginine methyltransferase that methylates the guanidino nitrogens of arginyl residues in proteins such as STAT3, FBL, histone H4. Acts as a coactivator (with NCOA2) of the androgen receptor (AR)-mediated transactivation. Acts as a coactivator (with estrogen) of estrogen receptor (ER)-mediated transactivation. Enhances PGR, PPARG, RARA-mediated transactivation. May inhibit NF-kappa-B transcription and promote apoptosis. Represses E2F1 transcriptional activity (in a RB1-dependent manner). May be involved in growth regulation.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed. Highly expressed in androgen target organs such as heart, prostate, skeletal muscle, ovary and spinal cord.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein arginine N-methyltransferase family.
    Contains 1 SH3 domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Translocates from the cytoplasm to the nucleus, after hormone exposure.
