Applications

Western Blot Validated

Application Notes

Applications Validated by Active Motif:
WB*: 1:500 - 1,2000 dilution

*Note: many chromatin-bound proteins are not soluble in a low salt nuclear extract and fractionate to the pellet. Therefore, we recommend a High Salt / Sonication Protocol when preparing nuclear extracts for Western blot.

Immunogen

This Histone H2B antibody was raised against a peptide including the C-terminal region of histone H2B.

Buffer

Rabbit serum containing 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.

 

Histone H2B pAb tested by Western blot.
Detection of Histone H2B by Western blot. The analysis was performed using HeLa acid extract and Histone H2B pAb at a 1:1,000 dilution.

Background

Histone H2B is one of the core components of the nucleosome. The nucleosome is the smallest subunit of chromatin and consists of 147 base pairs of DNA wrapped around an octamer of core histone proteins (two each of Histone H2A, Histone H2B, Histone H3 and Histone H4). Histone H1 is a linker histone, present at the interface between the nucleosome core and DNA entry/exit points; it is responsible for establishing higher-order chromatin structure. Chromatin is subject to a variety of chemical modifications, including post-translational modifications of the histone proteins and the methylation of cytosine residues in the DNA. Reported histone modifications include acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation, ubiquitylation, glycosylation, ADP-ribosylation, carbonylation and SUMOylation; they play a major role in regulating gene expression.

Positive Control

Active Motif's HeLa acid extract (Catalog No. 36200) can be used as a positive control for Histone H2B antibody.
