|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||RBBP4 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Core histone-binding subunit that may target chromatin assembly factors, chromatin remodeling factors and histone deacetylases to their histone substrates in a manner that is regulated by nucleosomal DNA. Component of several complexes which regulate chromatin metabolism. These include the chromatin assembly factor 1 (CAF-1) complex, which is required for chromatin assembly following DNA replication and DNA repair; the core histone deacetylase (HDAC) complex, which promotes histone deacetylation and consequent transcriptional repression; the nucleosome remodeling and histone deacetylase complex (the NuRD complex), which promotes transcriptional repression by histone deacetylation and nucleosome remodeling; the PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex, which promotes repression of homeotic genes during development; and the NURF (nucleosome remodeling factor) complex.|

RBBP4 is a core histone-binding subunit that may target chromatin assembly factors, chromatin remodeling factors and histone deacetylases to their histone substrates in a manner that is regulated by nucleosomal DNA. RBBP4 is a component of several complexes which regulate chromatin metabolism. These complexes include the chromatin assembly factor 1 (CAF-1) complex, which is required for chromatin assembly following DNA replication and DNA repair as well as the core histone deacetylase (HDAC) complex, which promotes histone deacetylation and consequent transcriptional repression (1) The growth suppression function of the retinoblastoma protein (Rb) is thought to be mediated by Rb binding to cellular proteins. Rb interacts with multiple cellular proteins that mediate its cellular function. p48 is one of the major proteins that binds to a putative functional domain at the carboxy terminus of the Rb protein (2). Interaction with p48 may be one of the mechanisms for suppression of growth mediated by Rb. RbAp48 (RBBP4) and RbAp46 are quantitatively the major Rb-associated proteins. Results suggest that RBBP4 and RbAp46 may have shared as well as unique functions in the regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation (3).
