Every item is shipped based on the best shipping method assessed for the temperature requirements of that specific item. Items are grouped and shipped together whenever
possible, and a separate shipping charge will be included for each shipping method required. Shipping charges listed below are from our US warehouses to the Contiguous US,
Alaska, Hawaii, Canada and Puerto Rico. Shipping charges for countries outside the US and Canada will be determined once order has been received
Please note: We can not ship to PO boxes

The mini-chromosome maintenance (MCM) family of proteins, including MCM2, MCM3, MCM4 (Cdc21), MCM5 (Cdc46), MCM6 (Mis5) and MCM7 (Cdc47), are regulators of DNA replication that act to ensure replication occurs only once in the cell cycle. Expression of MCM proteins increases during cell growth, peaking at G1 to S phase. The MCM proteins each contain an ATP-binding motif, which is predicted to mediate ATP-dependent opening of double-stranded DNA. MCM proteins are regulated by E2F transcription factors, which induce MCM expression, and by protein kinases, which interact with MCM proteins to maintain the postreplicative state of the cell. MCM2/MCM4 complexes function as substrates for Cdc2/cyclin B in vitro. Cleavage of MCM3, which can be prevented by caspase inhibitors, results in the inactivation of the MCM complex (composed of at least MCM proteins 2-6) during apoptosis. A complex composed of MCM4, MCM6 and MCM7 has been shown to be involved in DNA helicase activity, and MCM5 is involved in IFN-γ-induced Stat1α transcription activation.

How much sample do you recommend loading on the gel for Western blot detection using Mcm4 (D-7): sc-166037?
Asked by: Randy McDonald
We recommend loading 40–60 µg whole cell lysate, 10–20 µg nuclear extract, 5-10 µg transfected lysate, or 10–20 ng purified protein per lane. A link to our complete Western blotting protocol is provided here for your reference:
