Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
4. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
Purification The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name MLH1 (MLH1 Antibody Abstract)
Background The repair of mismatched DNA is essential to maintaining the integrity of genetic information over time. In bacteria the DNA repair process is accomplished by the MutL, MutH, and MutS proteins. The MutS protein initially recognizes and binds to mismatched DNA. Following this, MutH, an endonuclease, and MutL form a complex with MutS and carry out an excision repair mechanism. When bacteria are deficient in one of these enzymes a mutator phenotype arises characterized by genetic instability. The important role played by DNA repair enzymes is emphasized by the fact that they are highly conserved from bacteria to yeast to mammals. In yeast the proteins are called MutS homolog 2 (MSH2), MutL homolog (MLH1), and PMS1 which is also a homolog of MutL. MSH2 is involved in the initial recognition of mismatched nucleotides during the replication mismatch repair process. It is thought that after MSH2 binds to a mismatched DNA duplex it is joined by a heterodimer of MLH1 and PMS1 which together help facilitate the later steps in mismatch repair. Biochemical studies of the human homologs of DNA mismatch repair enzymes MLH1, PMS2, and MSH2 indicate that human MSH2 protein can bind mispaired DNA, and that human MLH1 and PMS2 can exist as a heterodimer. These and other studies support the conservation of eukaryotic DNA mismatch repair mechanisms. The G168-15 antibody recognizes human MLH1 (80-85 kDa). Full-length human recombinant MLH was expressed as a fusion protein, affinity purified, and used as immunogen.
Molecular Weight 80-85 kDa
Research Area Cancer, DNA/RNA
Application Notes Applications include western blot analysis (0.5-2.0 µg/ml) and immunohistochemical staining of frozen and paraffin-embedded tissue sections (5-20 µg/ml). Jurkat control lysate [50 µg (1 µg/µl)] is provided as a western blot control (store lysate at -20°C). Additional Jurkat control lysate (ABIN968537) is sold separately. Intestine or normal colon is suggested as a positive control for immunohistochemical staining. In intestine, staining is primarily nuclear and is seen in the crypts of Lieberkuhn, similar to that described in the literature. Both nuclear and cytoplasmic staining have been observed in a variety of other normal and tumor tissue and cell types. Clone G168-728 (ABIN967392) is recommended for immunoprecipitation of MLH1.
