Target

  • Function

    Binds CpG islands in promoters where the DNA is methylated at position 5 of cytosine within CpG dinucleotides. Binds hemimethylated DNA as well. Recruits histone deacetylases and DNA methyltransferases. Acts as transcriptional repressor and plays a role in gene silencing. Functions as a scaffold protein, targeting GATAD2A and GATAD2B to chromatin to promote repression. May enhance the activation of some unmethylated cAMP-responsive promoters.
  • Tissue specificity

    Highly expressed in brain, heart, kidney, stomach, testis and placenta.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 MBD (methyl-CpG-binding) domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Nuclear, in discrete foci. Detected at replication foci in late S phase.

  • This WB data was generated using the same anti-MBD2 antibody clone [EPR18361] in a different buffer formulation (cat# ab188474).

    Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 2: MBD2 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg) 
    Lane 3: A375 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 4: Human brain tissue lysate (20 µg)
    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab188474 observed at 32 & 49 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.
    ab188474 was shown to specifically react with MBD2 when MBD2 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and MBD2 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab188474 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted 1/1000 and 1/10000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed ( ab216773) and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216776) secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.

Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilised with 90% methanol. A Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) (1/2000 dilution) was used as the secondary antibody. Rabbit IgG, monoclonal [EPR25A] - Isotype Control (ab172730) (Black) was used as the isotype control, cells without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody (Blue) were used as the unlabeled control.
