CMAS (cytidine monophosphate N-acetylneuraminic acid synthetase), also known as CMP-NeuNAc synthetase or CMP-sialic acid sythetase, is a ubiquitously expressed 434 amino acid protein involved in sialic acid metabolism. Localizing to the nucleus, the evolutionarily conserved enzyme CMAS functions as a homotetramer and catalyzes the production of cytidine 5'-monophosphate N-acetylneuraminic acid (CMP-NeuNAc) from N-acetylneuraminic acid and CTP. The generation of CMP-NeuNAc is an important reaction because CMP-NeuNAc is an essential donor substrate used by sialyltransferases for the addition of sialic acid to hydroxyl groups at the terminal end of glycoproteins, polysaccharides and glycolipids. Proteins with this post-translational modification play an important role in the development, structure and function of animal tissues.

Can sc-100486: CMAS (14W) monoclonal antibody be used to stain formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections?
Asked by: Trav11
Thank you for your question. Yes, sc-100486: CMAS (14W) is recommended for use in IHC with paraffin-embedded sections. We recommend performing antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6) and heat. The full protocol can be found here:
