|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||29574 Da|
|Other Names||Nicotinamide N-methyltransferase, NNMT|
|Target/Specificity||This NNMT antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 77-106 amino acids from the Central region of human NNMT.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, eluted with high and low pH buffers and neutralized immediately, followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||NNMT Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the N-methylation of nicotinamide and other pyridines to form pyridinium ions. This activity is important for biotransformation of many drugs and xenobiotic compounds.|
|Tissue Location||Predominantly expressed in the liver. A lower expression is seen in the kidney, lung, skeletal muscle, placenta and heart. Not detected in the brain or pancreas|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
N-methylation is one method by which drug and other xenobiotic compounds are metabolized by the liver. NNMT is the protein responsible for this enzymatic activity, which uses S-adenosyl methionine as the methyl donor.
