Anti-N6-methyladenosine (m6A), Recombinant [17-3-4-1]

Invented at University of Nottingham


Catalogue Number 153275
Applications IP DB
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets N6-methyladenosine-5'-mono-phosphate
Reactivity Human, Mouse and Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Relevance Recombinant monoclonal antibody which binds to m6A modification found in RNA and allows for analysis of methylated transcriptomes. This can be used to investigate how m6A modifications regulates gene expression.

Background and Research Application
N6-Methyladenosine (m6A) is an abundant modification found in mRNA, tRNA, snRNA, as well as long non-coding RNA, in all species. RNA adenosine methylation is catalysed by a multicomponent complex composed of METTL3/MT-A70, METTL14, and WTAP in mammals. METTL3 & METTL14 are responsible for the methyltransferase activity of the complex, and WTAP mediates substrate recruitment.
The m6A antibody was created to identify m6A containing messages within RNA and helped identify the transcripts of three key, early regulators of meiosis, IME1, IME2 and IME4 itself as being methylated in RNA transcripts. This is a recombinant version of the anti-N6-methyladenosine monoclonal antibody. Anti-m6A. helped narrow down the position of m6A in IME2 as towards the 3’ end.
Anti-N6-methyladenosine will allow for analysis of methylated transcriptomes, and could aid understanding in how the m6A base modification regulates gene expression.

Points of Interest
It was shown that mutations in the m6A demethylase gene FTO, which cause a decrease of m6A levels, are associated with an increased risk for obesity and type 2 diabetes.

This antibody recognises N6-methyladenosine in both modified RNA AND DNA (see associated data).
Recombinant monoclonal antibody produced from the original monoclonal cell line. Manufactured using Absolute Antibody’s Recombinant Platform with variable regions (i.e. specificity) from the hybridoma.
Application Note: For immunoprecipitation the best results are obtained by pre-binding the antibody to the beads before washing off unbound immunoglobulin. It is recommended to start with an excess of antibody in order to ensure the Protein G beads are saturated.

IP protocol was derived from Dominissini et al., 2013 Nat Protoc. 8(1):176-89.
