Gene Information

General description

Histone H4 is one of the 5 main histone proteins involved in the structure of chromatin in eukaryotic cells. Featuring a main globular domain and a long N terminal tail H4 is involved with the structure of the nucleosomes of the ′beads on a string′ structure. Acetylation of histone H4 occurs at several different lysine positions in the histone tail and is performed by a family of enzymes known as Histone Acetyl Transferases (HATs).


This antibody is expected to demonstrate broad species cross-reactivity.
This antibody recognizes the N-terminus of Histone H4 acetylated at Lys5.


Epitope: N-terminus
KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to the N-terminus of Histone H4 acetylated at Lys5.


Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:500 dilution from a representative lot detected acetyl-Histone H4 in HeLa and A431 cells.

Dot Blot Specificity Analysis: A representative lot detected acetyl-histone H4 (Lys5) peptides, but not unacetylated-histone H4 (Lys4) peptides or other peptides corresponding to modified histones.

Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Analysis: 5 µL from a representative lot immunoprecipitated acetyl-Histone H4 in HeLa S3 chromatin.
