General description

REST corepressor 1(RCOR1, CoREST) is an essential component of the BHC corepressor complex that represses transcription of neuron-specific genes in non-neuronal cells by deacetylating and demethylating specific sites on histones, thereby acting as a chromatin modifier. RCOR1 also promotes the demethylase activity of KDM1A on core histones and nucleosomal substrates and plays a central role in demethylation of Lys-4 of histone H3. Furthermore, RCOR1 is a component of a RCOR/GFI/KDM1A/HDAC complex that suppresses a number of genes implicated in multilineage blood cell development and controls hematopoietic differentiation. RCOR1 is ubiquitously expressed and is primarily found in the nucleus, but is partially translocated into the cytoplasm upon HSV-1 infection.


This antibody may cross react with human RCOR3 based upon 70% sequence homology.


Recombinant protein corresponding to human Co-Rest/RCOR1.


Anti-Co-Rest/RCOR1 Antibody, clone K72/8 is a highly specific mouse monoclonal antibody, that targets CoRest & has been tested in western blotting, IHC & ICC.

Function of the mammalian olfactory system depends on specialized olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) that each express only one allele ("monoallelic") of one odorant receptor (OR) gene ("monogenic"). The lysine-specific demethylase-1 (LSD1) protein removes activating H3K4 or silencing H3K9 methylation marks...
