|Precautions||DNMT3A polyclonal antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required for genome-wide de novo methylation and is essential for the establishment of DNA methylation patterns during development. DNA methylation is coordinated with methylation of histones. It modifies DNA in a non-processive manner and also methylates non-CpG sites. May preferentially methylate DNA linker between 2 nucleosomal cores and is inhibited by histone H1. Plays a role in paternal and maternal imprinting. Required for methylation of most imprinted loci in germ cells. Acts as a transcriptional corepressor for ZBTB18. Recruited to trimethylated 'Lys-36' of histone H3 (H3K36me3) sites. Can actively repress transcription through the recruitment of HDAC activity.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Accumulates in the major satellite repeats at pericentric heterochromatin|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in fetal tissues, skeletal muscle, heart, peripheral blood mononuclear cells, kidney, and at lower levels in placenta, brain, liver, colon, spleen, small intestine and lung.|

DNMT3A catalyzes the genome wide de novo methylation of CpG residues. DNA methylation on CpG residues by DNMT3A regulates gene expression and is essential for development. DNMT3A is strongly expressed in embryonic stem cells, but low in adult somatic cells. DNA methylation is coordinated with methylation of histones. DNMT3A binds to SETDB1 and HDAC1, and is involved in the repression of transcription from promoters containing an E2F binding site.
