General description

Serine hydroxymethyltransferase (SHMT) is also known as glycine hydroxymethyltransferase or serine methylase, and is an enzyme that catalyzes the reversible conversion of serine and glycine. SHMT is thought to be involved in the epigenetic DNA methylation mechanism and has shown increased activity during cell proliferation and the S phase of the cell cycle. Evidence indicates that SHMT repression is a critical step in the Retinoic Acid-induced cell growth arrest and differentiation pathway.


KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to mouse SHMT1.

Target description

~53 kDa observed. An uncharacterized band may be observed at ~40 kDa in some tissue lysates.

Physical form

Affinity Purfied

Purified sheep polyclonal in buffer containing 0.5M HEPES with 0.05% sodium azide and 50% glycerol.

Storage and Stability

Stable for 1 year at -20°C from date of receipt.
Handling Recommendations: Upon receipt and prior to removing the cap, centrifuge the vial and gently mix the solution. Aliquot into microcentrifuge tubes and store at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, which may damage IgG and affect product performance.
Note: Variability in freezer temperatures below -20°C may cause glycerol containing solutions to become frozen during storage.
