Gene Name MBD1
Protein Name Methyl-CpG-binding domain protein 1
Molecular Weight 66607 MW
Protein Function Transcriptional repressor that binds CpG islands in promoters where the DNA is methylated at position 5 of cytosine within CpG dinucleotides. Binding is abolished by the presence of 7-mG that is produced by DNA damage by methylmethanesulfonate (MMS). Acts as transcriptional repressor and plays a role in gene silencing by recruiting AFT7IP, which in turn recruits factors such as the histone methyltransferase SETDB1. Probably forms a complex with SETDB1 and ATF7IP that represses transcription and couples DNA methylation and histone 'Lys-9' trimethylation. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 can also repress transcription from unmethylated promoters. .
Tissue Specificity Widely expressed. .
Sequence Similarities Contains 3 CXXC-type zinc fingers.
Subcellular Localization Nucleus . Nucleus matrix . Nucleus speckle. Chromosome. Colocalizes with the Ten-1 ICD form of TENM1 in foci associated with the nuclear matrix (By similarity). Nuclear, in a punctate pattern. Associated with euchromatic regions of the chromosomes, with pericentromeric regions on chromosome 1 and with telomeric regions from several chromosomes. .

Background for Methyl-CpG-binding domain protein 1

MBD1(Methyl-CpG-Binding Domain Protein 1), also known as PCM1 or CXXC3, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MBD1 gene. Using PCR on a hybrid panel and FISH, Hendrich et al.(1999) mapped the MBD1 gene to chromosome 18q21, 2.1 cM distal to MBD2. Using yeast 2-hybrid analysis, reciprocal immunoprecipitation analysis, and protein pull-down assays, Fujita et al.(2003) showed that MBD1 interacted directly with MCAF. Deletion analysis revealed that the C-terminal transcriptional repressor domain(TRD) of MBD1 interacted with a conserved C-terminal domain of MCAF. Reporter gene assays showed that MCAF increased the repressive function of the isolated TRD of MBD1 against SP1. Chromatin immunoprecipitation analysis revealed that MBD1 linked MCAF to methylated promoters. Uchimura et al.(2006) found that MBD1 was multiply sumoylated in HeLa cells. Sumoylation did not alter the intracellular localization of MBD1 at nuclear foci in C-33A human cervical cancer cells.

Q: Do you offer BSA-free antibodies? Keyword: Bovine serum albumin, carrier protein, conjugation
A: Yes, please contact us at for more information about BSA-free antibodies and availability. The new BSA-free formula uses trehalose as a replacement to BSA. We have tested many alternative chemicals and found that trehalose protects the antibodies the best.
Q: Is your western blot protocol provided from the website applicable for all your antibodies? Keyword: applications, WB
A: The protocol is applicable for all our antibodies in WB, the NC Membrane(0.45μm or 0.22μm) and transfer time(70 mins or 50 mins) depends on the protein molecular weight, details can be found in included protocol.
Q: Can I conjugate markers to this antibody? Can I link custom conjugates to this antibody? Keyword: conjugation
A: The antibody is stored with BSA and cannot be conjugated with markers. Carrier free antibodies are available upon request. Please contact
Q: What should I use for negative control?
A: Please contact us for negative control suggestions. You can also check expression databases such as genecards, uniprot etc. Due to logistic reasons, we do not sell serum or lysates that we use internally for positive or negative control.
Q: Where can I find troubleshooting information? What should I do if I have unexpected bands, high background, no signal, weak signal
A: You can find Boster's troubleshoot guides under tech support tab. Please contact us for further assistance on troubleshooting your experiment.
Q: What is the immunogen sequence of this antibody? Is this antibody polyclonal or monoclonal?
A: You can find the immunogen sequence under "Immunogen" and clonality in the product name.
Q: What is the expected band size? Why is it different than the observed band size?
A: The expected band size is predicted on the size of the protein. The actual band size may be affected by a few other factors including but not limited to:
1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands

3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.

4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
Q: What is the suggested dilution ratio for Western Blot (WB), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and or ELISA standards? What is the optimal pH for the sample?
A: Check the datasheet for the product for details on dilution ratios for different experiments. You can find the datasheet button on the right side of the product page.
Q: What is the protocol you used for your Western blotting (WB) and Immunohistochemistry (IHC)?
A: Check our protocols under the tech support tab.
Q: What are some alternative names that could be used to describe this product?
A: Some common names include but are not limited to mbd1 antibody, pcm 1 antibody, pcm1 antibody
