Recombinant Histone H2BFWT is supplied in 50 mM Tris pH 8.0, 150 mM NaCl, 5% glycerol. Please refer to product insert upon arrival for lot-specific concentration.


H2BFWT (H2B histone family member W, testis specific) has been found in sperm nuclei and appears to be associated with the telomeric chromatin. In contrast to conventional H2B, H2BFWT is unable to recruit chromosome condensation factors and to participate in the assembly of mitotic chromosomes.

Application Notes

Recombinant histone H2BFWT is suitable for use as substrate for histone modification enzymes, or to generate chromatin in vitro.
