Application Notes
This MAT2A antibody is useful for Western blot, where a band is seen at ~43 kDa, and Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence where cytoplasmic staining is observed in HepG2 cells. 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.

MAT1A and MAT2A are catalytic subunits of methionine adenosyltransferase (MAT), which catalyzes the formation of S-adenosyltransferase for methionine catabolism. Inactivation of MAT1A has been linked to liver disease. In addition, in certain liver cancers expression of MAT1A is replaced by expression of MAT1B. Overexpression of MAT2A has also been observed in colon cancer, leading to the proposal that MAT2A facilitates cancer cell growth.

FAQs for MAT2A Antibody (NB110-94158). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQs).

  1. We received an enquiry about the following antibody: NB110-94158. Since the protein sequence between MAT1A and MAT2A shares high homology, the customer would like to know how specific NB110-94158 is for MAT2A. I checked the alignment between the antibody immunogen and the MAT1A protein and this is actually high at 76%. Therefore, it is likely that the antibody would cross-react with the MAT1A protein especially as it is a polyclonal antibody. I would appreciate if you can provide any available data about cross-reactivity testing on the NB110-94158 specificity for MAT2A. Any information you can provide is highly appreciated.
    • The immunogen for NB110-94158 shares under 45% similarity with MAT1A. It is extremely unlikely that this antibody would cross-react with MAT1A, given the large difference in homology. Customer feedback suggests that this antibody is absolutely specific for MAT2A.
