Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab237985 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
Protein Array Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml.

Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10 mM Tris with 1 mM EDTA, pH 9.0, for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes. Incubate with primary antibody for 30 minutes at RT.

Target

  • Function

    Required for genome wide de novo methylation and is essential for the establishment of DNA methylation patterns during development. DNA methylation is coordinated with methylation of histones. It modifies DNA in a non-processive manner and also methylates non-CpG sites. May preferentially methylate DNA linker between 2 nucleosomal cores and is inhibited by histone H1. Plays a role in paternal and maternal imprinting. Required for methylation of most imprinted loci in germ cells. Acts as a transcriptional corepressor for ZNF238. Can actively repress transcription through the recruitment of HDAC activity.
  • Tissue specificity

    Highly expressed in fetal tissues, skeletal muscle, heart, peripheral blood mononuclear cells, kidney, and at lower levels in placenta, brain, liver, colon, spleen, small intestine and lung.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the C5-methyltransferase family.
    Contains 1 ADD domain.
    Contains 1 GATA-type zinc finger.
    Contains 1 PHD-type zinc finger.
    Contains 1 PWWP domain.
  • Domain

    The PWWP domain is essential for targeting to pericentric heterochromatin.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Sumoylated; sumoylation disrupts the ability to interact with histone deacetylases (HDAC1 and HDAC2) and repress transcription.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Accumulates in the major satellite repeats at pericentric heterochromatin.

  • ab237985 was tested in protein array against over 19000 different full-length human proteins.
    Z- and S- Score: The Z-score represents the strength of a signal that a monoclonal antibody (MAb) (in combination with a fluorescently-tagged anti-IgG secondary antibody) produces when binding to a particular protein on the HuProtTM array. Z-scores are described in units of standard deviations (SD's) above the mean value of all signals generated on that array. If targets on HuProtTM are arranged in descending order of the Z-score, the S-score is the difference (also in units of SD's) between the Z-score. S-score therefore represents the relative target specificity of a MAb to its intended target.
    A MAb is specific to its intended target if the MAb has an S-score of at least 2.5. For example, if a MAb binds to protein X with a Z-score of 43 and to protein Y with a Z-score of 14, then the S-score for the binding of that MAb to protein X is equal to 29.
