  • Target

    • Function

      Arginine methyltransferase that can both catalyze the formation of omega-N monomethylarginine (MMA) and symmetrical dimethylarginine (sDMA), with a preference for the formation of MMA. Specifically mediates the symmetrical dimethylation of arginine residues in the small nuclear ribonucleoproteins Sm D1 (SNRPD1) and Sm D3 (SNRPD3); such methylation being required for the assembly and biogenesis of snRNP core particles. Methylates SUPT5H. Mono- and dimethylates arginine residues of myelin basic protein (MBP) in vitro. Plays a role in the assembly of snRNP core particles. May play a role in cytokine-activated transduction pathways. Negatively regulates cyclin E1 promoter activity and cellular proliferation. May regulate the SUPT5H transcriptional elongation properties. May be part of a pathway that is connected to a chloride current, possibly through cytoskeletal rearrangement. Methylates histone H2A and H4 'Arg-3' during germ cell development. Methylates histone H3 'Arg-8', which may repress transcription. Methylates the Piwi proteins (PIWIL1, PIWIL2 and PIWIL4), methylation of Piwi proteins being required for the interaction with Tudor domain-containing proteins and subsequent localization to the meiotic nuage. Methylates RPS10.

    Answer

    Thank you for your phone call. I am sorry to hear that these 3 antibodies are not providing satisfactory results. The details provided will enable us to investigate this case and will provide us with vital information for monitoring product quality. As we discussed over the phone, I would like to offer some suggestions to help optimize the results: For ab413, ab415 I'd suggest using less primary and/or secondary antibody as the membrane shouldn't turn black. This might be an indication of too much antibody on the membrane. For ab109451, most likely using less primary antibody could help with the background as the recommended dilution for the antibody is 1/10,000 to 1/50,000. Should the suggestions not improve the results, please do let me know. In the event that a product is not functioning in the species and applications cited on the product datasheet (and the problem has been reported within 6 months of purchase), we would be pleased to provide a free of charge replacement, credit note, or refund. I hope this information is helpful, and I thank you for your cooperation.
