06-866 | Anti-acetyl-Histone H4 Antibody

Sonicated chromatin prepared from untreated HeLa cells (1 X 106 cell equivalents) was subjected to chromatin immunoprecipitation using 4 µL of either a normal rabbit antiserum or Anti-Acetyl Histone H4 serum and the Magna ChIP A (Cat. # 06-866) Kit. Successful immunoprecipitation of acetyl histone H4 associated DNA fragments was verified by qPCR using control ChIP Primers flanking the human GAPDH promoter.

      Background Information Histone H4 is one of the 5 main histone proteins involved in the structure of chromatin in eukaryotic cells. Featuring a main globular domain and a long N terminal tail H4 is involved with the structure of the nucleosomes of the 'beads on a string' structure. Acetylation of histone H4 occurs at several different lysine positions in the histone tail and is performed by a family of enzymes known as Histone Acetyl Transferases (HATs).

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene Summary Histones are basic nuclear proteins that are responsible for the nucleosome structure of the chromosomal fiber in eukaryotes. Two molecules of each of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4) form an octamer, around which approximately 146 bp of DNA is wrapped in repeating units, called nucleosomes. The linker histone, H1, interacts with linker DNA between nucleosomes and functions in the compaction of chromatin into higher order structures. This gene is intronless and encodes a member of the histone H4 family. Transcripts from this gene lack polyA tails but instead contain a palindromic termination element. This gene is found in the large histone gene cluster on chromosome 6.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt Summary FUNCTION: SwissProt: P62805 # Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling.
      SIZE: 103 amino acids; 11367 Da
      SUBUNIT: The nucleosome is a histone octamer containing two molecules each of H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 assembled in one H3-H4 heterotetramer and two H2A-H2B heterodimers. The octamer wraps approximately 147 bp of DNA.
      PTM: Symmetric dimethylation on Arg-4 by the PRDM1/PRMT5 complex may play a crucial role in the germ-cell lineage (By similarity). & Ubiquitinated by the CUL4-DDB-RBX1 complex in response to ultraviolet irradiation. This may weaken the interaction between histones and DNA and facilitate DNA accessibility to repair proteins.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P62805 ## Belongs to the histone H4 family.

      Histone Modifications


      How was this antibody made? What modifications will it recognize? The Anti-acetyl-Histone H4 was raised against the tetra acetylated H4. This antibody will recognize intermediately acetylated H4, but we are unsure what the reactivity for the antibody is against tetra-acetylated H4. We know it will not recognize acetylation on lysine 16, however it does recognize acetylation on the other three sites. A protein does not require acetylation on all four sites for this antibody to recognize it.
