IHC staining of purified anti-Histone H4 Trimethyl (Lys 20) antibody (clone 6F8-D9) on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded rat brain tissue. Following antigen retrieval using Sodium Citrate H.I.E.R., the tissue was incubated with 10 µg/mL of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C. BioLegend’s Ultra-Streptavidin (USA) HRP kit (Multi-Species, DAB, Cat. No. 929901) was used for detection followed by hematoxylin counterstaining, according to the protocol provided. The image was captured with a 40X objective.

    Western blot of purified anti-Histone H4 Trimethyl (Lys 20) antibody (clone 6F8-D9). Lane M: Molecular weight marker; Lane 1: 15 µg of Jurkat cell lysate; Lane 2: 15 µg of RAW264.7 cell lysate; Lane 3: 15 µg of UMR106 cell lysate. The blot was incubated with 0.5 µg/mL of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C, followed by incubation with HRP labeled goat anti-mouse IgG (Cat. No. 405306). HRP anti-β-actin antibody (clone 2F1-1, Cat. No. 643807) was used as a loading control (bottom blot). The bands were visualized using chemiluminescence detection.

Description

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.

Structure
Histone proteins H3 and H4 bind to form a tetramer. This tetramer further combines with two H2a-H2b dimers to form the compact Histone octamer core.
Distribution

Histone H4 is ubiquitously expressed in all cells.

Function
Transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication, chromosomal stability, silencing of repetitive DNA and transposons.
Interaction
Various transcription factors.
