CXXC1 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total CXXC1 protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Asp117 of human CXXC1 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
The CXXC finger protein 1 (CXXC1, CGBP, CFP1) is a key subunit of the human SET1 histone methyltransferase complex (1,2) that methylates histone H3 at Lys4 to create a mark of transcriptionally active promoters (3,4). CXXC1 is enriched at CpG islands where it selectively binds non-methylated CpG motifs to provide a link between global H3K4 methylation and CpG islands (5). Research studies have revealed a role for CXXC1 in the maintenance of cytosine methylation through direct interaction with DNMT1 (6-9). The epigenetic functions of CXXC1 are critical for normal embryonic development. Targeted deletion of the murine Cxxc1 gene results in early embryonic lethality while Cxxc1-null embryonic stem (ES) cells exhibit increased apoptosis and fail to undergo differentiation in vitro following withdrawal of leukemia inhibitory factor LIF (6).
