A PF01429 MBD Methyl-CpG binding domain Domain The Methyl-CpG binding domain (MBD) binds to DNA that contains one or more symmetrically methylated CpGs [1]. DNA methylation in animals is associated with alterations in chromatin structure and silencing of gene expression. MBD has negligible non-specific affinity for DNA. In vitro foot-printing with MeCP2 showed the MBD can protect a 12 nucleotide region surrounding a methyl CpG pair [1]. MBDs are found in several Methyl-CpG binding proteins and also DNA demethylase [2]. PFAM PF01429
