|Other Names||Alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase alkB homolog 3, 11411-, Alkylated DNA repair protein alkB homolog 3, DEPC-1, Prostate cancer antigen 1, ALKBH3, ABH3, DEPC1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8682b was selected from the C-term region of human ALKBH3. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||Dioxygenase that mediates demethylation of DNA and RNA containing 1-methyladenosine (m1A) (PubMed:12486230, PubMed:12594517, PubMed:16174769, PubMed:26863196, PubMed:26863410). Repairs alkylated DNA containing 1- methyladenosine (m1A) and 3-methylcytosine (m3C) by oxidative demethylation (PubMed:12486230, PubMed:12594517, PubMed:16174769). Has a strong preference for single-stranded DNA (PubMed:12486230, PubMed:12594517, PubMed:16174769). Able to process alkylated m3C within double-stranded regions via its interaction with ASCC3, which promotes DNA unwinding to generate single-stranded substrate needed for ALKBH3 (PubMed:22055184). Also acts on RNA (PubMed:12594517, PubMed:16174769, PubMed:26863196, PubMed:26863410, PubMed:16858410). Demethylates N(1)- methyladenosine (m1A) RNA, an epigenetic internal modification of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) highly enriched within 5'-untranslated regions (UTRs) and in the vicinity of start codons (PubMed:26863196, PubMed:26863410). Requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron (PubMed:22055184, PubMed:16858410).|

The Escherichia coli AlkB protein protects against the cytotoxicity of methylating agents by repair of the specific DNA lesions generated in single-stranded DNA. ALKBH2 (MIM 610602) and ALKBH3 are E. coli AlkB homologs that catalyze the removal of 1-methyladenine and 3-methylcytosine.
