Preparation Note

Thaw on ice. Upon first thaw, briefly spin tube containing enzyme to recover full content of the tube. Aliquot enzyme into single use aliquots. Store remaining undiluted enzyme in aliquots at -70°C. Note: Enzyme is very sensitive to freeze/thaw cycles.

Physical form

Formulated in 25 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.0, 100 mM NaCl, 0.05% Tween-20 and 10% glycerol.

Biochem/physiol Actions

DNA (cytosine-5-)-methyltransferase 2 (DNMT2) methylates the cytosine-38 residue of the aspartic acid transfer RNA (tRNA-Asp). It has been shown to interact with the anticodon stem and loop. The protein also functions in cellular physiology and stress response. It is significantly expressed in cancers.

General description

DNA (cytosine-5-)-methyltransferase 2 (DNMT2) is a highly conserved protein which is part of the DNA methyltransferase family. It possesses a conserved cysteine residue in its catalytic pocket. The gene encoding it is localized on human chromosome 10p14->p12.

Modulators and Proteins for Methylation

DNA methyltransferases are a family of enzymes that catalyze the transfer of a methyl group to DNA. There are five related DNA cytosine-5-methyltransferases (DNMTs) that transfer a methyl group from ...
