Primary antibody notesAb10805 recognises the modified base 5-methylcytidine found in DNA of plants and vertebrates. DNA methylation is a DNA modification process, which is involved in the control of gene expression. Reports suggest that in tumours, DNA is frequently globally hypomethylated compared to the DNA from normal tissue.

FormThe native context of double-stranded DNA may obstruct antibody binding to 5-methylcytosine. For successful detection of 5-methylcytosine, we recommend that the DNA is denatured to make the nucleotides accessible for the antibody. Denaturing methods vary depending on each application.

ab10805 staining 5-Methyl Cytidine in pig embryo (15 to 17 days) tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue underwent fixation in paraformaldehyde, heat mediated antigen retrieval in Tris-EDTA buffer, permeabilization in Triton X-100 and blocking in 2% BSA for 10 minutes at 25°C. The primary antibody was diluted, 1/100 (PBS + 2% BSA) and incubated with sample for 1 hour at 25°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated donkey polyclonal to mouse at 1/250 dilution, was used as secondary.
Native ChIP analysis using unpurified ab10805 binding 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) in nuclear cell lysate derived from mouse embryonic stem cells. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (2µg/µg chromatin) for 16 hours at 4°C in a Glycerol IP buffer. Protein binding was detected using real-time PCR.
Positive control: Magoh2 in HMT KO cells.
Negative Control: Magoh2 in WT cells.
Dot blot carried out using ab10805 (left blot), showing specificity to 5-methylcytosine. Indicated amounts (20–5 ng) of oligonucleotides containing either 5mC (50%) or 5hmC (20 %) were spotted on positive charged nylon membrane and detected either with 5mC (ab10805) or 5hmC antibody.
