Product Description
The affinity purified rabbit polyclonal anti-Di-methylated lysine antibodies are developed using a technique unique to ImmuneChem. The Di-methylated lysine antibodies are affinity purified using N-Di-methyl (epsilon amino group) lysine on agarose as the affinity matrix. The antibodies could be utilized for detection, quantization and isolation of proteins with Di-methylated lysine residues.
 
 
Western blot analysis of the di-methylated proteins from swine spleen cells lysate (lanes 4-5) and acid-extraction histones. (Lanes 2-3) with rabbit anti-di-methyl lysine antibodies (anti-MeK, ICP0701).
Species
Rabbit
Formulation
250 µg/mL in Tris-phosphate buffer, 50% glycerol
Immunogen
Di-methylated KLH conjugates
Purification
The antibody is  immunoaffinity purified with epsilon N-Di-methyl lysine on agarose.
Specificity
The antibody recognizes proteins or peptides with di-methyl lysine residues. There is no cross reaction with acetylated proteins. The cross reactivity with mono-methyl lysine has not been tested.
Applications
ELISA, WB, IP
Scientific Description
Protein lysine methylation (MeK) is a conserved post-translational modification and is an important biochemical process for many protein-protein interactions. It is found in many proteins, for example calmodulin, cytochrome C, chromosomal proteins, histones, non-histones as well as neural storage body proteins. It has been suggested that di-methylation of lysine plays an important role in gene silencing.[1]
