|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||52113 Da|
|Antigen Region||4-20 aa|
|Other Names||Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase SUV420H2, Lysine N-methyltransferase 5C, Suppressor of variegation 4-20 homolog 2, Su(var)4-20 homolog 2, Suv4-20h2, SUV420H2, KMT5C|
|Target/Specificity||This SUV4-20H2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 60-90 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human SUV4-20H2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||SUV4-20H2 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Histone methyltransferase that specifically trimethylates 'Lys-20' of histone H4. H4 'Lys-20' trimethylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression. Mainly functions in pericentric heterochromatin regions, thereby playing a central role in the establishment of constitutive heterochromatin in these regions. SUV420H1 is targeted to histone H3 via its interaction with RB1 family proteins (RB1, RBL1 and RBL2) (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome. Note=Associated with pericentric heterochromatin. CBX1 and CBX5 are required for the localization to pericentric heterochromatin (By similarity).|

SUV420H2 and the related enzyme SUV420H1 (MIM 610881) function as histone methyltransferases that specifically trimethylate nucleosomal histone H4 (see MIM 602822) on lysine-20 (K20) (Schotta et al., 2004 [PubMed 15145825]).
