This Histone H3 dimethyl Lys36 antibody was raised against a peptide including dimethyl-lysine 36 of histone H3.
Rabbit serum containing 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic. For your convenience, an IgG version (Catalog No. 39891) of this antibody that was purified by Protein A Chromatography is also available.

Histone H3 is one of the core components of the nucleosome. The nucleosome is the smallest subunit of chromatin and consists of 147 base pairs of DNA wrapped around an octamer of core histone proteins (two each of Histone H2A, Histone H2B, Histone H3 and Histone H4). Chromatin is subject to a variety of chemical modifications, including post-translational modifications of the histone proteins and the methylation of cytosine residues in the DNA. Reported histone modifications include acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation, ubiquitylation, glycosylation, ADP-ribosylation, carbonylation and SUMOylation; these modifications play a major role in regulating gene expression.
The methylation of histones can occur on two different residues: arginine or lysine. Histone methylation can be associated with transcriptional activation or repression, depending on the methylated residue. Histone H3 is methylated at lysine 36 by the Set2 (yeast) and NSD1 (mammals) methyltransferases. Dimethylation of lysine 36 of histone H3 is involved with transcriptional elongation by RNA pol II holoenzyme and is a marker of transcribed genes.
Active Motif's HeLa acid extract (Catalog No. 36200) can be used as a positive control for Histone H3 dimethyl Lys36 antibody.
