Histone proteins are classified into core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, H4) and linker histones (H1, H5). Core histones form an octamer, which contains two H2A-H2B dimers and one H3-H4 tetramer. Core histones are predominantly globular except for the unstructured N-terminal tails. Posttranslational modifications, such as acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation, ubiquitination, SUMOylation and ADP-ribosylation occur in histone tails.
Histone modifications induce changes of chromatin structure and thereby affect the accessibility of transcription factors, nuclear proteins and enzymes to genomic DNA, resulting in gene activation or repression. It is known that histone modifications play critical roles in DNA repair, DNA replication, transcription regulation, alternative splicing and chromosome condensation and some diseases including autoimmune diseases and cancers.

ChIP - Quality tested
IHC-P, WB - Verified
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ChIP Assay. The suggested dilution for ChIP application is 1:50-1:100 by volume. For immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue, a dilution range of 1:100 - 1:200 is suggested. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.1 µg/mL (1:5000). It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
25 µg and 100 µg of Go-ChIP-Grade™ Purified Antibody can be used for 2-5 or 10-20 immunoprecipitations, respectively, at the recommended dilutions.

- Histone H4 is a 103 amino acid protein with an apparent molecular mass of 12 kD
- Histones play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. Histone proteins H3 and H4 bind to form a H3-H4 dimer, two of these H3-H4 dimers combine to form a tetramer. This tetramer further combines with two H2a-H2b dimers to form the compact Histone octamer core.
