  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [7E6] to mono and dimethyl Arginine
  • Host species
    Mouse
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: IP, ChIP, ELISAmore details
    Unsuitable for: WB
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Species independent
  • Immunogen

    Asymmetrical NG/NG-dimethyl arginine

  • Positive control
    • Methylated histones are an option
  • General notes

    This antibody will be of central importance in analysing the methylation status of chromatin and transcription factors. Since it recognises both dimethyl and monomethyl arginine it can be used in parallel with ab413 (detects dimethyl arginine only) and ab414 (detects monomethyl arginine only) to monitor the exact modification status. A tissue culture supernatant version is available as ab5394.

    • Sonicated Chromatin prepared from untreated or 17beta-estradiol (E2) treated MCF7 cells was subjected to the ChIP procedure (see protocol) with ab412 to mono and dimethyl Arginine.

      Immunoprecipitated chromatin was analysed in the proximal region of the estrogen-responsive pS2 promoter (as shown above) and quantified by real-time PCR (values are % of inputs). The primers are designed to follow the nucleosome E (including the Estrogen Responsive Element ERE). 3 µl of ab412 and 4x106 cells were used in each ChIP experiment.

    • RIP140 null adipocytes extracts were suspended in 250 µl of immunoprecipitation buffer (150 mM NaCl,50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 1 mM EDTA, 0.2% (v/v) Nonidet P40, 2 mM PMSF, 0.1% (w/v) SDS and a protease-inhibitor cocktail. Protein extracts (200 µg) were incubated with antibodies to RIP140, 14-3-3, or PRMT1 overnight at 4°C, and precipitated with protein G–agarose beads for 1–2 hours. ab412 was then used (amongst other antibodies) in Western Blot. Reduced protein inputs were used for ectopic expression of RIP140 to avoid saturation.

    Answer

    Thank you for contacting us.

    These antibodies are raised against targets that are not species specific. The antibodies would detect the proteins irrespective of species so the Abtrial discount will not be valid.

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

    Answer

    Thank you for taking the time to complete our questionnaire. The details you have kindly provided will enable us to investigate this case for you and this is also helpful in our records for monitoring of quality.

    Reviewing this case, I would appreciate if you can confirm some further details:

    1. Could you confirm if reducing and denaturing conditions have been tried? We recommend to use antibodies in reducing and denaturing conditions in WB unless it recommends to use non denaturing and reducing conditions on the datasheet. This will ensure that the proteins are in the correct conformation to run at the correct molecular weight and be detected by the antibody.

    2. Could you confirm what size are the 3 bands in the blot in the eluted samples? And what size bands were you expecting?

    3. How was the sample eluted from the IP column? Which buffer was used?

    4. Which lanes are the whole cell extract in, is this lane 1 and 2 (input A and B?).

    5, Has the transfer to the membrane and quality of the sample been assessed with a loading control in the whole cell extracts? Transfer to the membrane may be different from the eluted samples if they are in different buffers etc).

    I hope this information is helpful, thank you for your cooperation. Should the suggestions not improve the results, please do not hesitate to contact me again with the further requested details.

    As requested, I have obtained some more information regaring Western blot protocols using ab412 mono and dimethyl Arginine antibody [7E6] . I hope the following publications in which the antibody has been used in WB will be helpful:

    Blifernez O et al. Protein arginine methylation modulates light-harvesting antenna translation in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Plant J 65:119-30 (2011).

    McBride AE et al. Specific sequences within arginine-glycine-rich domains affect mRNA-binding protein function. Nucleic Acids Res 37:4322-30 (2009).
