Epigenetics tool: 5-Methylcytidine antibody

This 5-methylcytidine (5meC or 5-MeCyd) antibody is a commonly use reference in epigenetic research that allows to detect methylation of cytidines. DNA methylation is a DNA modification process, which is involved in the control of gene expression, which leads to genes being silenced or enhanced in their expression having pre-recursions for a large variety of disorders. Recently, this part of genetics has become a vibrant research area that spans various fields of molecular biology and genetics. The importance of epigenetics lies in the fact that it has a great impact on the phenotype despite identical genotypes.
This 5-methylcytidine monoclonal antibody specifically binds the modified base found in DNA of plants and vertebrates. It can be applied in a large variety of assays, such as Flow Cytometry, Immunohistochemistry, Immunofluorescence, and Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP). Have a look at more details: »Show datasheet
