MGMT antibody (pAb)
for MGMT antibody (pAb)Application Notes
IP: 10 µl per IP
WB: 1:500 - 1:1,000 dilution
The addition of 0.05% Tween 20 in the blocking buffer and primary antibody incubation buffer is recommended to aid in detection by Western blot. Individual optimization may be required.
for MGMT antibody (pAb)Immunogen
This MGMT antibody was raised against a peptide derived from the C-terminal region of human MGMT.
for MGMT antibody (pAb)Buffer
Purified IgG in 70 mM Tris (pH 8), 105 mM NaCl, 31 mM glycine, 0.07 mM EDTA, 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.
for MGMT antibody (pAb)References
MGMT (O-6 methylguanine DNA methyltransferase) is an enzyme involved in DNA damage repair. MGMT transfers methyl groups from O-6 methylguanine methylated DNA, and other methylated adducts, to a cysteine residue in itself, thus reversing DNA damage caused by alkylation. This is a suicide reaction as the enzyme is irreversibly inactivated. MGMT helps prevent DNA alkylation events from causing mutations. It also contributes to resistance to chemotherapy in cancer patients being treated with alkylating drugs.
for MGMT antibody (pAb)Positive Control
Active Motif's MCF-7 nuclear extract (Catalog No. 36017) can be used as a positive control for MGMT antibody.
Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.
