|Other Names||Protein arginine N-methyltransferase 8, 211-, Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein methyltransferase-like protein 4, PRMT8, HRMT1L3, HRMT1L4|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1219b was selected from the C-term region of human PRMT8. 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||S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent and membrane- associated arginine methyltransferase that can both catalyze the formation of omega-N monomethylarginine (MMA) and asymmetrical dimethylarginine (aDMA) in proteins such as NIFK, myelin basic protein, histone H4, H2A and H2A/H2B dimer (PubMed:16051612, PubMed:17925405, PubMed:26876602, PubMed:26529540). Able to mono- and dimethylate EWS protein; however its precise role toward EWS remains unclear as it still interacts with fully methylated EWS (PubMed:18320585).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Lipid- anchor; Cytoplasmic side|

Protein arginine methylation plays a role in signal transduction, RNA processing, transcriptional regulation, and DNA repair. PRMT8, a protein arginine N-methyltransferase most closely related to PRMT1, methylates the guanidino nitrogens of arginyl residues in some proteins. This protein associates with the plasma membrane following myristoylation and exhibits a brain-specific expression pattern, making it unique within this family of enzymes.
