|Other Names||Methyl-CpG-binding domain protein 3, Methyl-CpG-binding protein MBD3, MBD3|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13755a was selected from the N-term region of MBD3. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI 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||Acts as transcriptional repressor and plays a role in gene silencing. Does not bind to DNA by itself (PubMed:12124384). Binds to DNA with a preference for sites containing methylated CpG dinucleotides (in vitro). Binds to a lesser degree DNA containing unmethylated CpG dinucleotides (PubMed:24307175). Recruits histone deacetylases and DNA methyltransferases.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome. Note=Nuclear, in discrete foci. Detected on chromatin, at promoter regions of active genes|

DNA methylation is the major modification of eukaryoticgenomes and plays an essential role in mammalian development. Humanproteins MECP2, MBD1, MBD2, MBD3, and MBD4 comprise a family ofnuclear proteins related by the presence in each of a methyl-CpGbinding domain (MBD). However, unlike the other family members,MBD3 is not capable of binding to methylated DNA. The predictedMBD3 protein shares 71% and 94% identity with MBD2 (isoform 1) andmouse Mbd3. MBD3 is a subunit of the NuRD, a multisubunit complexcontaining nucleosome remodeling and histone deacetylaseactivities. MBD3 mediates the association of metastasis-associatedprotein 2 (MTA2) with the core histone deacetylase complex.
