Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended.
If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use.
Working dilutions should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.
Shipped at 4°C. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Upon delivery aliquot. Store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
WB: Use at a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 65 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 70 kDa). Staining of the MBD4 band in immunoblotting is specifically inhibited by the immunizing peptide.
Not tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Mismatch-specific DNA N-glycosylase involved in DNA repair. Has thymine glycosylase activity and is specific for G:T mismatches within methylated and unmethylated CpG sites. Can also remove uracil or 5-fluorouracil in G:U mismatches. Has no lyase activity. Was first identified as methyl-CpG-binding protein.
