Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
MBD4, Methyl-CpG-binding domain protein 4, Methyl-CpG-binding endonuclease 1, Methyl-CpG-binding protein, MBD4, Mismatch-specific DNA N-glycosylase, MED1
MBD4 (methyl-CpG-binding domain protein 4) belongs to the MBD family of nuclear proteins that bind to methylated CpG sites and represses gene transcription. Human proteins MECP2, MBD1, MBD2, and MBD4, except MBD3 bind specifically to methylated DNA. MBD4 exhibits thymine glycosylase activity and is known to play an important function in DNA mismatch repair and apoptosis.

100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-MBD4 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:
The antibody can be used in Western Blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually.
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.
