|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Rabbit, Zebrafish, Pig, Dog, Guinea Pig, Horse, Bovine, Yeast|
|Predicted||Human, Mouse, Rat, Rabbit, Zebrafish, Pig, Chicken, Dog, Bovine|
|Calculated MW||43 kDa|
|Alias Symbol||HPC3, PC3, RC1|
|Other Names||Chromobox protein homolog 8, Polycomb 3 homolog, Pc3, hPc3, Rectachrome 1, CBX8, PC3, RC1|
|Target/Specificity||CBX8 is one of the proteins homolog to the Polycomb group (PcG) proteins. They assemble to form large multiprotein complexes involved in gene silencing. Evidence suggests that PcG complexes are heterogeneous with respect to both protein composition and specific function.|
|Format||Liquid. Purified antibody supplied in 1x PBS buffer with 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide and 2% sucrose.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Add 50 ul of distilled water. Final anti-CBX8 antibody concentration is 1 mg/ml in PBS buffer with 2% sucrose. For longer periods of storage, store at -20°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CBX8 antibody - N-terminal region is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of a Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1- like complex, a complex class required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes, including Hox genes, throughout development. PcG PRC1 complex acts via chromatin remodeling and modification of histones; it mediates monoubiquitination of histone H2A 'Lys-119', rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility.|
