General description

5-Methylcytidine is a component of RNA in Escherichia coli. It is present in the RNA of plant, animal and bacterial origin. It is one of the C derivative present in transfer RNA (tRNA).

Application

5-Methylcytidine is used in studies of DNA methylation processes (epigenetics).
5-Methylcytidine has been used as a standard for deriving the calibration curve in reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC).

Packaging

25 mg in glass insert
100 mg in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

5-Methylcytidine is an alkylated pyrimidine plays an important role enhancing the stacking in A- and B- helices of nucleic acid, results in increase of the melting temperature and improves thermal stability leading to structural stabilization.

Chromatin organization, nuclear DNA methylation and endogenous zeatin localization were investigated in shoot apical meristems (SAM) during juvenile and adult phases of peach (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch). The aim was to examine the extent to which these parameters could discriminate...

Aberrant DNA methylation patterns have been linked to molecular and cellular alterations in the aging brain. Caloric restriction (CR) and upregulation of antioxidants have been proposed as interventions to prevent or delay age-related brain pathology. Previously, we have shown in...

A monoclonal antibody against 5-methylcytidine was prepared and characterized. This antibody, termed AMC, was reactive with compounds that had 5-methylcytosine structure (i.e. 5-methyl-2'-deoxycytidine, 5-methylcytidine and 5-methylcytosine). AMC had the highest reactivity to 5-methyl-2'-deoxycytidine among reactive compounds and had no or...
