100 µg/100 µL

Anti-5-methylcytidine (m5C) mAb (Clone: FMC-9) reacts with 5-methylcytidine (m5C or m5Cyd), 5-methyl-2’-deoxycytidine (m5dC or m5dCyd) and 5-methylcytosine (5mC, 5-mC or m5Cyt).
  • Immunoprecipitation

    MeDIP was performed using mouse genomic DNA fragments containing synthesized DNAs. IP'd samples were analyzed by real-time qPCR using primers specific to synthetic DNA spike-in controls or Loci 1-3.

Background 5-Methylcytosine (5mC), a modified nucleobase derived from cytosine, is present in both DNA and RNA molecules. 5mC in DNA is an essential epigenetic mark associated with gene silencing and genome stability during embryonic development. 5mC in ribonucleoside, called 5-methylcytidine (m5C), is involved in structural stability, aminoacylation and codon recognition of tRNA. In rRNA, m5C affects translational fidelity and tRNA recognition. m5C-modified nucleobase also have been identified in mRNA and other non-coding RNA but the biological functions are still unclear. m5C is detected not only in tissues and cells but also in urine. It is reported that the levels of m5C change in urine or tissues from patients with various diseases such as bladder, breast and colon cancers.
