Monoclonal Mouse Purified E B IH IC FC
5-Methylcytidine is a modified base found in DNA of plants and vertebrates. DNA methylation is a post- replication process involved in the establishment of genomic imprinting, in the control of gene expression and of differentiation. Carcinogenesis is associated with alterations of the DNA methylation pattern: a global DNA hypomethylation is often detected in tumor tissues, associated with local hypermethylation sites. This antibody has been developed to discriminate between the modified base and its normal counterpart. lt has been used to detect alterations in the urinary excretion of nucleosides by cancer patients, to visualize the distribution of methyl-rich regions along human chromosomes, to quantify in situ differences between normal and malignant cells from peripheral blood as well as on tissue sections.
