Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified B IH FC
Cancer chemotherapeutic alkylating agents (e.g. BCNU) act by inducing formation of lethal cross-links at the O-alkylguanine position in DNA. MGMT transfers alkyl adducts from the O6-position of guanine in DNA (prior to cross-link formation) to a cysteine residue in its own sequence, thereby restoring DNA to its intact state. This transfer inactivates the MGMT enzyme and is irreversible; hence the level of MGMT in a cell is directly proportional to the level of DNA-damage it can tolerate. In normal tissues, MGMT acts as a suppressor of mutation and carcinogenesis. Tumors with high levels of MGMT are likely be drug-resistant.
Catalog #M3884-90
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Flow Cytometry, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: 0.5-1ug/ml for 2hrs at RT
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/paraffin): 1:10-1:20 for 60 min at RT. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
Optimal dilution to be determined by the researcher.
Positive ControlRaji cells; Colon carcinoma
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile 40-50% glycerol, aliquot and store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
