Specificity and Use

MCM2 antibody was raised against synthetic peptide from human MCM2.
Amino acids 21-31 of human MCM2 protein (see below).
Immunohistochemistry: LS-B391 was validated for use in immunohistochemistry on a panel of 21 formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) human tissues after heat induced antigen retrieval in pH 6.0 citrate buffer. After incubation with the primary antibody, slides were incubated with biotinylated secondary antibody, followed by alkaline phosphatase-streptavidin and chromogen. The stained slides were evaluated by a pathologist to confirm staining specificity. The optimal working concentration for LS-B391 was determined to be 5 ug/ml.


0.02 M potassium phosphate, 0.15 M sodium chloride, pH 7.2, 0.01% sodium azide.
Aliquot and store at -20°C. Minimize freezing and thawing.

MCM2, also called CDCL1 and BM28, is a nuclear protein that allows DNA to undergo a single round of replication per cell cycle. It is required for the entry in S phase and for cell division. Increasing levels of MCM2 have been linked to increasing risk levels in some types of carcinoma.

Western blot

Western blot
Anti-MCM2 Antibody - Western Blot. Western blot of Affinity Purified anti-MCM2 antibody shows detection of both phosphorylated and unphosphorylated MCM2 present in nuclear extracts from elutriated human cells (MO59K/K562). The MCM2 protein is phosphorylated after initiation of DNA replication, therefore, the protein is unphosphorylated in early S phase, and gradually becomes phosphorylated throughout S phase. In G2/M, all MCM2 is phosphorylated. Panel A shows western blot results for lysates were prepared from asynchronous cells (lane 1), cells arrested in early S with aphidicolin (lane2), and cells arrested in mitosis with nocodazole (lane 3). Panel B shows a schematic diagram of bands representing phosphorylated and unphosphorylated MCM2 present in these preparations. Asynchronous cells contain a doublet of both forms. Aphidicolin treated cells contain only unphosphorylated MCM2 and nocodozole treatment results in only phosphorylated MCM2 detected in the lysate. The phosphorylated band migrates faster than the unphosphorylated form and is seen as the lower band. There is a clear switch from the unphosphorylated form in the center lane, to the phosphorylated form in the third lane, confirming recognition of both forms of MCM2 by this antibody. The primary antibody was diluted 1:400 for this experiment. Personal Communication, Jennifer Seiler, NIH, CCR, Bethesda, MD.
