  • Immunoprecipitation 1:10-1:500
Application Notes
This Dnmt3a antibody is useful for Immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded sections, Immunoprecipitation, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence and Western Blot, where a band should be seen at ~120 kDa. NOTE: This antibody does not neutralize the enzymatic activity of its corresponding methyltransferase. In ICC/IF, nuclear and cytoplasmic staining was observed in Ntera-2 cells. In IHC-P, staining was observed in the cytoplasm of mouse testis. Prior to immunostaining paraffin tissues, antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended.
Theoretical MW
120 kDa.
Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

Methylation of cytosine residues is essential for mammalian development by regulating gene expression, gene silencing and genomic imprinting (1). This process is controlled by the enzyme DNA (cytosine-5)-methyltransferase 3A (DNMt3a), which is encoded by the DNMT3A gene and has a predicted molecular weight of 102 kDa. DNA methyltransferases including DNMt3a are involved in de novo cytosine methylation and maintenance of embryonic and somatic cells through the transfer of methyl groups to specific CpG structures in DNA (2). Somatic mutations in DNMT3A are responsible for cytogenetically normal acute myeloid leukemia (CN-AML). Hypermethylation of CpG islands in tumor suppressor genes or hypomethylation of bulk genomic DNA are linked with cancer (3,4). Mutations in the DNMT3A gene have also been found to cause DNMT3A overgrowth syndrome and myelodysplastic syndromes.

FAQs for DNMT3A Antibody (NB100-265). (Showing 1 - 2 of 2 FAQs).

  1. I'll try to experiment ChIP for using the following antibody. Dnmt3a Antibody (NB100-265) Please tell me a concentration it.
    • NB100-265 is provided in whole antisera and the concentration of antibody is not available.
  2. Does this antibody recognize the short (723 aa / 81 kD) or the long (912 aa/102 kD) form of the DNA methytransferase 3A?
    • The immunogen sequence used for Dnmt3a antibody (NB100-265) is from the amino acids 10-118 of human Dnmt3a which does not match the amino acid sequence of the short forms of this target (i.e. 723 AA Isoform-2 or 166 AA Isoform-3). Therefore this antibody should not be able to detect the short forms of Dnmt3a. In our testing on HCT-116 cells, we have observed the target bands at approximately 120 kDa, and no bands were observed at approximately 82kD or 17kD positions.
