Gene Information

human ... WHSC1L1(54904)

General description

The gene WHSC1L1 (Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome candidate 1-like protein 1) is mapped to human chromosome 8p11.2. The protein contains methyltransferase SET domain and the PHD (plant homeodomain) finger. WHSC1L1 is also called as NSD3 (nuclear SET domain-containing protein 3).


nuclear receptor binding SET domain protein 3 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome candidate 1-like protein 1 (WHSC1L1) is a histone methyltransferase. Bromodomain protein 4 (BRD4) interacts with WHSC1L1 and thereby regulates transcriptional activity. WHSC1L1 modulates transcription by controlling histone-3 lysine-36 (H3K36) methylation. WHSC1L1 is up-regulated in tumor cell lines, bladder, lung, liver cancer and primary breast carcinoma. It is important for cell cycle progression at mitosis. WHSC1L1-NUT (nuclear protein in testis) fusion protein is associated with NUT (nuclear protein of the testis) midline carcinoma.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.

Bromodomain protein 4 (Brd4) plays critical roles in development, cancer progression, and virus-host pathogenesis. To gain mechanistic insight into the various biological functions of Brd4, we performed a proteomic analysis to identify and characterize Brd4-associated cellular proteins. We found that...
