General description

Methyl-CpG binding protein 2 (MeCP2) possesses a methyl-CpG-binding domain (MBD) and a transcriptional repression domain.
Monoclonal Anti-MeCP2 (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the Men-8 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells (NS1) and splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminus of human MeCP2.

Immunogen

synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminus (amino acids 15-30) of human MeCP2.

Application

Monoclonal Anti-MeCP2 antibody has been used:
  • in western blotting
  • in immunoblotting
  • in flow cytometry
  • in immunohistofluorescence
  • in immunocytochemistry

Biochem/physiol Actions

MeCP2 (methyl-CpG binding protein 2) silences transcription by recruiting the histone deacetylase (HDAC) repressive machinery via recruitment of the Sin 3A corepressor, thus removing acetyl groups from histones and consequently, silencing genes.
Methyl-CpG binding protein 2 (MeCP2) has been shown be crucial for brain development. It part of the methyl-CpG-binding proteins, which are involved in repression of gene expression by binding to methylated DNA. Mutations in the gene encoding MeCP2 have been associated with Rett syndrome (RTT).

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline containing 15 mM sodium azide.
