Methyl CpG binding protein 2 (MeCP2) is a chromosomal protein that binds to methylated DNA. It can bind specifically to a single methyl-CpG pair and is not influenced by sequences flanking the methyl-CpGs. MeCP2 mediates transcriptional repression through interaction with histone deacetylase and the corepressor SIN3A. CDKL5 kinase interacts with MeCP2 and mediates its phosphorylation, which suggests that they belong to the same molecular pathway. MeCP2 gene mutations are the cause of some cases of Rett syndrome, a progressive neurologic developmental disorder.
GenScript MeCP2 Antibody, pAb, Rabbit is developed in rabbit using a KLH-coupled synthetic peptide within residues 310–360 of human MeCP2 (Swiss Prot: P51608).
Ig Subclass
Rabbit IgG
The antibody is stable in lyophilized form if stored at -20°C or below. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for 2-3 weeks at 2-8°C. For long term storage, aliquot and store at -20°C or below. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing cycles.
GenScript MeCP2 Antibody, pAb, Rabbit detects endogenous levels of human MeCP2. It is predicted to react with rat and mouse MeCP2 according to sequence homology.
Positive Control: MCF-7
