Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Protein arginine N-methyltransferase 6, Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein methyltransferase-like protein 6, Histone-arginine N-methyltransferase, PRMT6, PRMT6, HRMT1L6
Protein arginine methylation is a form of post-translational modification that is catalyzed by protein arginine methyltransferases (PRMTs). PRMT6 catalyzes the sequential transfer of a methyl group from S-adenosyl-L-methionine to the side chain nitrogens of arginine residues within proteins to form methylated arginine derivatives and S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine. PRMT6 has been shown to act as a restriction factor for HIV replication.

Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-PRMT6 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 5 mM EDTA and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western Blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. Blocking peptide (Cat.# 3086BP-50) is available separately.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
