HDAC2 is a member of the class I histone deacetylase (HDACs) family, which modulates the chromatin structure by removing acetyl groups from the side chain of lysine residues on the N-terminal region of core histones. HDAC2 lacks DNA binding activity and executes its function by recruiting transcription factors and forming large transcriptional repressor complexes. In addition to histones, HDAC2 can deacetylate transcription factors and modify their transcriptional activity. HDAC2 is highly homologous to HDAC1 in regulating cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. HDAC2 has been shown to negatively regulate synaptic plasticity and memory formation. Elevated activity of HDAC2 has been associated with the loss of memory and neuronal degeneration.Product Details

- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.5 - 2.5 µg per ml. For immunoprecipitation, the suggested use of this reagent is 10 - 30 μg per ml. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 0.1 - 10 μg/ml is recommended. For ChIP applications, the suggested dilution is 1:50-1:100 by volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
A minor non-specific band of ~70 kDa was observed by western blot during product development.
