Data Examples
Detection of Human DNMT3B by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of BG01V human embryonic stem cells. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human DNMT3B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7646) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for DNMT3B at approximately 105 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
DNMT3B in iPS2 Human Stem Cell Line. DNMT3B was detected in immersion fixed iPS2 human induced pluripotent stem cell line using Mouse Anti-Human DNMT3B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7646) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red, upper panel; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue, lower panel). Specific staining was localized to nuclei. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.
DNMT3B in Human Colon. DNMT3B was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human colon using Mouse Anti-Human DNMT3B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7646) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counter­stained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei in epithelial cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Background: DNMT3B

DNMT3B (DNA methyltransferase 3B; also DNA MTase HsaIIIB) is a 95-110 kDa member of the C5-methyltransferase family of enzymes. It is ubiquitously expressed in the embryo and found associated with nuclear pericentric heterochromatin. Pericentric heterochromatin is chromatin composed of satellite repeats that lie adjacent to the centromere. DNA (cytosine-guanine dinucleotides) associated with this area undergos methylation, contributing to gene repression and proper chromosome segregation. Human DNMT3B is 853 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a PWWP (Pro-Trp-Trp-Pro) domain that binds DNA (aa 225-283), a ADD (ATRX, DNMT3, DNMT3L) domain that contains a Zn-finger and binds to an unmethylated histone H3 tail (aa 423-555), and a class I AdoMet-MTase catalytic region that uses S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine as a substrate for methyl transfer (aa 577-847). There are at least five isoform variants. All show a deletion of aa 365-375. In addition, a second contains an alternative start site 12 aa upstream of the standard site, a third shows a deletion of aa 745-807, a fourth contains a Ser substitution for aa 744-853, while a fifth possesses a 45 aa substitution for aa 768-853. Over aa 1-355, human DNMT3B shares 73% aa sequence identity with mouse DNMT3B.
