|Other Names||Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase SETDB2, Chronic lymphocytic leukemia deletion region gene 8 protein, Lysine N-methyltransferase 1F, SET domain bifurcated 2, SETDB2, C13orf4, CLLD8, KMT1F|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1075a was selected from the Center region of human SETDB2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||C13orf4, CLLD8, KMT1F|
|Function||Histone methyltransferase involved in left-right axis specification in early development and mitosis. Specifically trimethylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3 (H3K9me3). H3K9me3 is a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression that recruits HP1 (CBX1, CBX3 and/or CBX5) proteins to methylated histones. Contributes to H3K9me3 in both the interspersed repetitive elements and centromere-associated repeats. Plays a role in chromosome condensation and segregation during mitosis.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Highest expression in heart, testis and ovary|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Proteins that contain a SET domain, such as SETDB2, modulate gene expression epigenetically through histone H3 methylation. SETDB2 is likely a histone H3 methyltransferase, as it contains both the active site and flanking cysteine residues required for catalytic activity.
