|Other Names||tRNA (cytosine(38)-C(5))-methyltransferase, DNA (cytosine-5)-methyltransferase-like protein 2, Dnmt2, DNA methyltransferase homolog MmuIIP, DNA MTase homolog MmuIIP, MMmuIIP, Met-2, Trdmt1, Dnmt2, Met2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1061a was selected from the N-term region of human Mouse Dnmt2 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Specifically methylates cytosine 38 in the anticodon loop of tRNA(Asp).|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in thymus, testis, and at much lower levels in spleen, lung, brain, heart, kidney, liver, skeletal muscle and embryonic stem cells|

mDnmt2 does not appear to be active as a DNA methyltransferase; however, its strong binding to DNA suggests that it may mark specific sequences in the genome by binding to DNA through the specific target-recognizing motif. mDnmt2 is strongly expressed in thymus, testis, and at much lower levels in spleen, lung, brain, heart, kidney, liver, skeletal muscle and embryonic stem cells. This protein belongs to the 5-cystosine methyltransferase family.
