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 HDAC2 antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to amino acids 473-488 of human HDAC2.

Buffer

Purified IgG in 70 mM Tris (pH 8), 105 mM NaCl, 31 mM glycine, 0.07 mM EDTA, 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic. For your convenience, a concentrated supernatant version (Catalog No. 39533) of this antibody is also available.

Background

HDAC2 (Histone Deacetylase 2, also designated mammalian RPD3) is a member of the class I mammalian histone deacetylases (HDACs) involved in regulating chromatin structure during transcription. These enzymes catalyze the removal of acetyl groups from lysine residues of histones and other cellular proteins. Lysine N-ε-acetylation is a dynamic, reversible and tightly regulated protein and histone modification that plays a major role in regulation of gene expression in various cellular functions. It consists of the transfer of an acetyl moiety from an acetyl coenzyme A to the ε-amino group of a lysine residue.

In vivo, acetylation is controlled by the antagonistic activities of histone acetyltransferases (HATs) and histone deacetylases (HDACs). The HDACs are grouped into four classes, on the basis of similarity to yeast counterparts: HDAC class I (HDAC1, HDAC2, HDAC3 and HDAC8), class II (HDAC4, HDAC5, HDAC6, HDAC7, 9 and 10), class III (SIRT1-7) and class IV (HDAC11). HDAC2 is associated with many different proteins as YY1 (a mammalian zinc-finger transcription factor). HDAC2 also forms transcriptional repressor complexes containing, among others, HDAC1 or RBBP4. HDAC1, HDAC2 and HDAC3 are also ubiquitously expressed and can deacetylate both H3 and H4 in free histones or nucleosome substrate.

Positive Control

Active Motif's HeLa nuclear extract (Catalog No. 36010) can be used as a positive control for HDAC2 antibody.

Storage

Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.

Guarantee

This product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.

This product is for research use only and is not for use in diagnostic procedures.
