Suitable substrate for histone methyltransferases.

Preparation Note

Thaw on ice. Upon first thaw, briefly spin tube containing protein to recover full content of the tube. Aliquot protein into single use aliquots. Store remaining undiluted protein in aliquots at -70°C. Note: Protein is very sensitive to freeze/thaw cycles.

Physical form

Formulated in 25 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.0, 100 mM NaCl, 0.05% Tween-20, 20% glycerol and 3 mM DTT.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Histones H2B and H4 are found to become mobilized during an infection with HSV-1 (herpes simplex virus-1) and become available for binding to viral genome.

General description
