Sheep anti Human MDC1 antibody recognizes human Mediator of DNA damage checkpoint protein 1, also known as MDC1 or Nuclear factor with BRCT domains 1. MDC1 is a 2089 amino acid, ~250 kDa nuclear protein containing two BRCT domains and a single FHA domain. MDC1 is involved in checkpoint mediated cell cycle arest in response to DNA damage (UniProt: Q14676)
