The addition of 0.05% Tween 20 in the blocking buffer and primary antibody incubation buffer is recommended to aid in detection by Western blot. Individual optimization may be required.
Note: many chromatin-bound proteins are not soluble in a low salt nuclear extract and fractionate to the pellet. Therefore, we recommend a High Salt / Sonication Protocol when preparing nuclear extracts for Western Blot.
This Histone H3 monomethyl Lys79 antibody was raised against a peptide including monomethyl-lysine 79 of histone H3.
Purified IgG in PBS (pH 7.5) with 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic. For your convenience, an unpurified serum version (Catalog No. 39145) of this antibody 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.
Lysine 79 of histone H3 can be mono-, di- or trimethylated by Dot1 methylase; methylation at this residue acts as a marker of inactive chromatin regions that is critical for transcriptional silencing, and it is thought that silencing proteins such as Sir3 function by blocking Dot1 methylation.
Active Motif's HeLa nuclear extract (Catalog No. 36010) can be used as a positive control for Histone H3 monomethyl Lys79 antibody.
