For western blots, incubate membrane with diluted primary antibody in 5% w/v BSA, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween® 20 at 4°C with gentle shaking, overnight.
NOTE: Please refer to primary antibody datasheet or product webpage for recommended antibody dilution.
From sample preparation to detection, the reagents you need for your Western Blot are now in one convenient kit: #12957 Western Blotting Application Solutions Kit
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
Load 20 µl onto SDS-PAGE gel (10 cm x 10 cm).
NOTE: Volumes are for 10 cm x 10 cm (100 cm2) of membrane; for different sized membranes, adjust volumes accordingly.
* Avoid repeated exposure to skin.

Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

MTHFR (D1E4V) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total MTHFR protein.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Pro39 of human MTHFR protein.
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), a key enzyme in one-carbon metabolism, catalyzes the conversion of 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. 5-methyltetrahydrofolate donates its methyl group for remethylation of homocysteine to methionine. Methionine is further converted to S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), a major reactive methyl carrier. DNA methyltransferases and histone methyltransferases use SAM to methylate DNA and histones with concomitant conversion of SAM to S-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH) (1, 2). In addition, MTHFR is inhibited by SAM and this feedback inhibition is partially reduced by SAH (3). Metabolically regulated levels of SAM and SAM/SAH ratio are shown to predict histone methylation levels, indicating the important role of enzymes in one-carbon metabolism including MTHFR in determining histone methylation status (4).
