|Application ||IHC-P, WB, E|
|Calculated MW||33375 Da|
|Antigen Region||242-269 aa|
|Other Names||Alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase alkB homolog 3, 11411-, Alkylated DNA repair protein alkB homolog 3, DEPC-1, Prostate cancer antigen 1, ALKBH3, ABH3, DEPC1|
|Target/Specificity||This ALKBH3 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 242-269 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ALKBH3.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ALKBH3 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Dioxygenase that mediates demethylation of DNA and RNA containing 1-methyladenosine (m1A) (PubMed:12486230, PubMed:12594517, PubMed:16174769, PubMed:26863196, PubMed:26863410). Repairs alkylated DNA containing 1-methyladenosine (m1A) and 3-methylcytosine (m3C) by oxidative demethylation (PubMed:12486230, PubMed:12594517, PubMed:16174769, PubMed:25944111). Has a strong preference for single- stranded DNA (PubMed:12486230, PubMed:12594517, PubMed:16174769). Able to process alkylated m3C within double-stranded regions via its interaction with ASCC3, which promotes DNA unwinding to generate single-stranded substrate needed for ALKBH3 (PubMed:22055184). Also acts on RNA (PubMed:12594517, PubMed:16174769, PubMed:26863196, PubMed:26863410, PubMed:16858410). Demethylates N(1)-methyladenosine (m1A) RNA, an epigenetic internal modification of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) highly enriched within 5'-untranslated regions (UTRs) and in the vicinity of start codons (PubMed:26863196, PubMed:26863410). Requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron (PubMed:22055184, PubMed:16858410).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm Note=Colocalizes with ASCC2 and ASCC3 in nuclear foci when cells have been exposed to alkylating agents that cause DNA damage (PubMed:29144457). Predominantly localizes to the nucleus|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Detected in heart, pancreas, skeletal muscle, thymus, testis, ovary, spleen, prostate, small intestine, peripheral blood leukocytes, urinary bladder and colon|

The Escherichia coli AlkB protein protects against the cytotoxicity of methylating agents by repair of the specific DNA lesions generated in single-stranded DNA. ALKBH2 (MIM 610602) and ALKBH3 are E. coli AlkB homologs that catalyze the removal of 1-methyladenine and 3-methylcytosine.
