Full length recombinant NSD2 (E1099K) protein is suppled in 25 mM HEPES pH 7.5, 500 mM NaCl, 5% glycerol, 0.04% Triton X-100, 0.2 mM TCEP. Please refer to product insert upon arrival for lot-specific concentration.


NSD2 (nuclear receptor binding SET domain protein 1; also known as WHSC1; MMSET; TRX5) is a SET domain-containing histone methyltransferase specific for lysine 36 of histone H3. The NSD2 gene is deleted in Wolf- Hirschhorn syndrome, a disorder characterized by developmental defects and mental retardation. In 15% of patients with Multiple Myeloma (MM), a chromosomal translocation leads to NSD2 gene being aberrantly placed under the control of the IgH intronic µ enhancer and expressed at very high levels. This event is apparently a key component in cellular transformation leading to MM. Reduction in NSD2 expression in a myeloma cell line suppressed its growth, suggesting a role for NSD2 in maintaining the transformed state.

NSD2 p.Glu1099Lys (p.E1099K) variant was identified in nontranslocated acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) cell lines.

Application Notes

Recombinant NSD2 (E1099K) activity assay.

Recombinant NSD2 (E1099K) activity assay.
2 µg recombinant nucleosomes (Cat #: 31468) was incubated with 0 µg (-), 0.25 µg (+), 0.5 ug (++), 1 µg NSD2 (E1099K)(+++), respectively, in reaction buffer for 3 hours at room temperature. 2 µg histone octamer (Cat #: 31472) was used as a control substrate for NSD2 (E1099K) assay. Production (H3K36me2) was detected by Western blot.


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.
