|Application ||WB, FC|
|Calculated MW||H=22;R=22;M=22 KDa|
|Other Names||Methylated-DNA--protein-cysteine methyltransferase, 6-O-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase, MGMT, O-6-methylguanine-DNA-alkyltransferase, MGMT|
|Target/Specificity||This MGMT antibody is generated from a mouse immunized with a recombinant protein.|
|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||MGMT Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in the cellular defense against the biological effects of O6-methylguanine (O6-MeG) and O4-methylthymine (O4-MeT) in DNA. Repairs the methylated nucleobase in DNA by stoichiometrically transferring the methyl group to a cysteine residue in the enzyme. This is a suicide reaction: the enzyme is irreversibly inactivated.|

Involved in the cellular defense against the biological effects of O6-methylguanine (O6-MeG) in DNA. Repairs alkylated guanine in DNA by stoichiometrically transferring the alkyl group at the O-6 position to a cysteine residue in the enzyme. This is a suicide reaction: the enzyme is irreversibly inactivated.
