Zinc-finger proteins contain DNA-binding domains characterized by the unique role of zinc and have a wide variety of functions such as transcriptional activation or repression. The protein folding and the DNA binding ability are governed by the coordination of a zinc ion. As a member of the MYM (myeloproliferative and mental retardation) gene family, ZMYM1 is widely expressed in different tissues in eukaryotes under several forms derived by alternative splicing. While its function remains unknown, the related protein ZMYM2 has been shown to associate with and stabilize the LSD1-CoREST-HDAC1 (LCH) complex of chromatin through its MYM-type zinc fingers, thereby enhancing the transcriptional repression of several genes, suggesting that ZMYM1 may play a similar role.
|Host Subclass||Rabbit IgG|
|Immunogen||ZMYM1 antibody was raised against a 17 amino acid synthetic peptide near the carboxy terminus of human ZMYM1.|
|Reactive Species||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Formulation||Antibody is supplied in PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.|
|Reconstitution||During shipment, small volumes of antibody will occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial. For products with volumes of 200 μl or less, we recommend gently tapping the vial on a hard surface or briefly centrifuging the vial in a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container’s cap.|
|Stability & Storage||Antibody can be stored at 4°C for three months and at -20°C for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
