- CITATIONS: 1
|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||15404 Da|
|Other Names||Histone H31, Histone H3/a, Histone H3/b, Histone H3/c, Histone H3/d, Histone H3/f, Histone H3/h, Histone H3/i, Histone H3/j, Histone H3/k, Histone H3/l, HIST1H3A, H3FA|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic acetylated peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Lys18 of Histone H3 was used as immunogen. The antibody only detects Histone H3 acetylated on Lysine 18.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Histone-H3 Antibody Acetyl (K18) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome.|

Changes in chromatin structure play a large role in the regulation of transcription in eukaryotes (1). The nucleosome is the primary building block of chromatin, and is made up of four core histone proteins (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4) (2). Acetylation of core histones regulates gene expression (2). Histone H3 is primarily acetylated at lysines 9, 14, 18, and 23 (3,4). Acetylation at lysine 9 appears to have a dominant role in histone deposition and chromatin assembly in some organisms (3,4).
