  • Target

    • Function
      Acts as component of the MCM2-7 complex (MCM complex) which is the putative replicative helicase essential for 'once per cell cycle' DNA replication initiation and elongation in eukaryotic cells. The active ATPase sites in the MCM2-7 ring are formed through the interaction surfaces of two neighboring subunits such that a critical structure of a conserved arginine finger motif is provided in trans relative to the ATP-binding site of the Walker A box of the adjacent subunit. The six ATPase active sites, however, are likely to contribute differentially to the complex helicase activity.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the MCM family.
      Contains 1 MCM domain.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    • Cellular localization
      Nucleus. Binds to chromatin during G1 and detach from it during S phase.

    • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human breast carcinoma (left) and mouse squamous cell carcinoma (right) tissues labelling MCM6 with ab4458 at 1/1000 (1µg/ml). Detection: DAB.
    • Sample: HeLa cell RIPA extract (50 µg).

      Antibody: ab4458 at 0.2 µg/ml incubated for 1 hour.

      Sample: HeLa cell RIPA extract (50 µg).

      Antibody: ab4458 at 0.2 µg/ml incubated for 1 hour.
    • IHC image of ab4458 staining in normal human skin formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab4458, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

      For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
