Mouse anti 5-methylcytidine antibody, clone 33D3 recognizes 5-methylcytidine, a modified base found in the DNA of plants and vertebrates.

Methylation of DNA is an epigenetic process that stably alters the expression of genes in cells as they divide and differentiate into specific tissues. The resulting change is normally permanent and unidirectional, preventing a cell from reverting to a stem cell or converting into another type of tissue. In cancer biology, DNA hypermethylation is associated with gene silencing while hypomethylation is reported to be associated with disease progression (Sincic & Herceg, 2011).

Mouse anti 5-MeCyd antibody, clone 33D3 is specific to the methylated base and has minimal reactivity to non-methylated cytidine or cytosine (Reynaud et al.1992)

Mouse anti 5-MeCyd antibody, clone 33D3 has been reported for use in Methylated DNA immunoprecipitation (MeDIP) (Ponteset al. 2007).

Methylated DNA Immunoprecipitation
  1. 1Membrane permeabilization may be required prior to staining. Cell pretreatment before staining is described in Giraldo et al (2007)..
  2. 2This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections.Sodium citrate buffer pH 6.0 is recommended for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.

Flow Cytometry
Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 1x106 cells in 100ul.
