Histone H3 is one of the five main histone proteins involved in the structure of chromatin in eukaryotic cells. Featuring a main globular domain and a long N-terminal tail, H3 is involved with the structure of the nucleosomes of the ′beads on a string′ structure. The N-terminal tail of histone H3 protrudes from the globular nucleosome core and can undergo several different types of epigenetic modifications that influence cellular processes. These modifications include the covalent attachment of methyl or acetyl groups to lysine and arginine amino acids and the phosphorylation of serine or threonine.
Recognizes monomethylated histone H3 (Lys27), Mr 17 kDa.
Broad species cross-reactivity expected, based on sequence homology.
KLH-conjugated, synthetic 2X-branched peptide containing the sequence …ARmeKSA… in which meK corresponds to monomethyl-lysine at residue 27 of human histone H3.
Immunocytochemistry & Dot Blot:
Reported by an independent laboratory (Kohlmaier, A., 2004; Perez-Burgos, L., 2004; Peters, A. H., 2003).
