Anti–EHMT1 polyclonal antibody

Catalog #: 25220
Size: 100 µl
Host Species: Rabbit
Clonality: polyclonal
EHMT1 (UniProt/Swiss–Prot entry Q9H9B1) is a histone methyltransferase which specifically methylates histone H3 on lysine 9. H3K9 methylation represents a marker for epigenetic transcriptional repression. This repression is established by recruiting HP1 proteins to the methylated histone. H3K9 methylation may contribute to silencing of MYC and E2F responsive genes and plays a role in murine embryogenesis.
Polyclonal antibody raised in rabbit against mouse Ehmt1 (euchromatic histone–lysine N–methyltransferase 1), using three KLH–conjugated synthetic peptides containing a sequence from the central part of the protein
Assay Conditions:

Determination of the titer
To determine the titer, an ELISA was performed using a serial dilution of the antibody directed against mouse EHMT1 (Cat. No. 25220). The plates were coated with a mix of the peptides used for immunization of the rabbit. By plotting the absorbance against the antibody dilution (Figure 1), the titer of the antibody was estimated to be 1:10,600.

Western blot analysis using the antibody directed against EHMT1
Nuclear extracts of HeLa cells (40 μg) were analysed by Western blot using the antibody against EHMT1 (Cat. No. 25220) diluted 1:1,000 in TBS-Tween containing 5% skimmed milk. The position of the protein of interest (expected size: 138 kDa) is indicated on the right; the marker (in kDa) is shown on the left.
