* Chromatin immunoprecipitation was performed on this product with a standard set of primers that amplify active gene loci (GAPDH, RPL30), inactive loci (MYOD1, AFM), and heterochromatic loci (alphaSat, SAT2). The resulting data indicated there was little to no amplification of these sites, which corresponds with the current literature. Until a more specific locus can be established and validated, we give this product validity for ChIP and it is backed by the full Novus guarantee.

Chromatin is the arrangement of DNA and proteins in which chromosomes are formed. Correspondingly, chromatin is formed from nucleosomes, which are comprised of a set of four histone proteins (H2A, H2B, H3, H4) wrapped with DNA. Chromatin is a very dynamic structure in which numerous post-translational modifications work together to activate or repress the availability of DNA to be copied, transcribed, or repaired. These marks decide which DNA will be open and commonly active (euchromatin) or tightly wound to prevent access and activation (heterochromatin). Common histone modifications include methylation of lysine and arginine, acetylation of lysine, phosphorylation of threonine and serine, and sumoylation, biotinylation, and ubiquitylation of lysine. Trimethylation of lysine 56 on H3 is a novel modification, but has been reported in mouse cells at very low frequencies (PMID 14690609).

FAQs for Histone H3 Antibody (NB21-1343). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQ).
We recently bought the anti-Histone H3 [Trimethyl Lys56] antibody (# NB21-1343, lot A-1). Our application would be ChIP and amino acid context of H3K56 is quite similar to H3K9, so the absence of cross reactivity with H3K9me3 (H3 [Trimethyl Lys9] ) is crucial. Do you have a dot blot assessing the specificity/sensitivity of the antibody?
- While we haven't directly tested for this potential cross-reactivity, alignment of the immunogen with Histone H3 suggests that chances of cross-reactivity with H3K9 are extremely low. We feel quite confident that this antibody is specific for H3K56.
