: Recognizes proteins with tri-methylation on lysine residues (N-epsilon).
: For direct immunofluorescence assay
: Pan-specific antibody. No cross-reactions detected with acetylated, mono-methylated and di-methylated proteins.
: Methylated lysine-KLH conjugates.
: PBS, 50% glycerol, pH 7.
: By affinity chromatography on a tri-methyl lysine agarose column
: Store at 4o
C (add 0.1% NaN3
) for several months, and at -20o
C for longer periods.
For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For optimal performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
: Post-translational modification of proteins and peptides is a robust way to regulate function of existing proteins or peptides. Methylation on lysine residues is one example of post-translational modification and is performed by a variety of protein methyl transferases in the cell. C/EBPs are extensively modified by methylation of lysine side chains and this regulated methylation profoundly affects the activity of C/EBPs (1). The Methylated Lysine Antibody conjugated to FITC detects methylation on lysine residues in proteins and peptides.
