PA1-888 detects methyl CpG binding protein 2 (MeCP2) from human, mouse and rat cells and tissues. PA1-888 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~56 kDa protein representing MeCP2 from AtT20 cell extract. PA1-888 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 469-486 from human MeCP2. This sequence is completely conserved in rat and mouse MeCP2. PA1-888 immunizing peptide (Cat. No. PEP-121) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.

MECP2 belongs to a family of nuclear proteins (including MBD1, MBD2, MBD3 and MBD4) that have a methyl-CpG binding domain. MECP2 is capable of binding specifically to methylated DNA. DNA methylation is the major modification of eukaryotic genomes and plays an essential role in mammalian development. MECP2 can also repress transcription from methylated gene promoters. In contrast to other MBD family members, MECP2 is X-linked and subject to X inactivation. MECP2 is dispensible in stem cells, but is essential for embryonic development. MECP2 gene mutations are the cause of most cases of Rett syndrome, a progressive neurologic developmental disorder and one of the most common causes of mental retardation in females.
