for Recombinant Histone H4 (Xenopus)Contents

Recombinant Histone H4 (Xenopus) is supplied as lyophilized powder. Recombinant histones can be resuspended in water or any suitable buffer. We recommend a starting concentration of 1 mg/ml. To fully solubilize the histone we suggest resuspension in the buffer of choice at room temperature for 20-30 minutes with occasional pipetting. Addition of salt or Tris to the resuspension buffer may enhance histone solubility.

for Recombinant Histone H4 (Xenopus)Background

Histone H4 is one of the core components of the nucleosome. The nucleosome is the smallest subunit of chromatin and consists of 146 base pairs of DNA wrapped around an octamer of core histone proteins (two each of H2A, H2B, H3 and H4). Histone H1 is a linker histone, present at the interface between the nucleosome core and DNA entry/exit points.

for Recombinant Histone H4 (Xenopus)Application Notes

Recombinant histones are suitable for use as positive controls in the analysis of histone post-translational modifications, as substrates for histone modification enzymes, or to generate chromatin in vitro.

for Recombinant Histone H4 (Xenopus)Protein Details

Recombinant Histone H4 (Xenopus) is produced in E. coli and purified using FPLC. Protein concentration was determined using the molar extinction coefficient for Histone H4 and absorbance at 280nm. The recombinant histone is >98% pure by SDS-PAGE. The molecular weight of the recombinant histone is 11,211 Daltons.

for Recombinant Histone H4 (Xenopus)Storage

Lyophilized proteins can be stored at -20°C or -80°C, preferably desiccated. Recombinant proteins in solution are temperature sensitive and must be stored at -80°C to prevent degradation. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles and keep on ice when not in storage.
