The affinity purified rabbit polyclonal anti-methylated lysine antibody is developed using a technique unique to ImmuneChem. The methylated lysine antibodies are affinity purified using N-methyl (epsilon amino group) lysine on agarose as the affinity matrix. The purified antibody was conjugated to d-biotin via acetylation. Direct labelling of the primary antibody will avoid the use of secondary antibodies therefore eliminating the interference of the secondary antibody conjugates.
MeK is a conserved post-translational modification which is an important biochemical process for many protein-protein interactions. It is found in many proteins, for example calmodulin, cytochrome B, chromosomal proteins, non-histones as well as neural storage body proteins. It has been suggested that methylation of lysine plays an important role in gene silencing. [1-3]
