This Histone H3 dimethyl Lys4 antibody was raised against a synthetic peptide containing dimethyl Lys4 of human histone H3.
PBS pH 7.5 containing 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.
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). Histone H1 is a linker histone, present at the interface between the nucleosome core and DNA entry/exit points. Histone H1 is responsible for establishing higher-order chromatin structure.
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. Lysine 4 of histone H3 can be mono-, di- or trimethylated by different histone methyltransferases (HMTs) such as SET1 or ASH1. Methylation of Lys4 is often associated with transcriptional activation. The demethylase LSD1 is able to demethylate histone H3 Lys4.
Active Motif's Human Positive Control Primer Set ACTB-2 (Cat. No. 71005) and Human Negative Control Primer Set 1 (Cat. No. 71001) have been validated for performing qPCR and endpoint PCR when this antibody has been used for ChIP on human samples. For ChIP experiments with this antibody on mouse samples, the Mouse Positive Control Primer Set Actb-2 (Cat. No. 71017) and Mouse Negative Control Primer Set 1 (Cat. No. 71011) have been validated for both qPCR and endpoint PCR.
