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.


This CoREST antibody was raised against a synthetic peptide derived from the C-terminal region of human CoREST.


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.

CoREST (REST corepressor 1, RCOR1) is a corepressor protein recruited by the REST, a neuronal gene-specific transcriptional repressor, to help repress neuron specific gene expression in non-neuronal cell lineages. CoREST is an essential component of the BHC repressor complex that also contains HDAC1, HDAC2, HMG20B/BRAF35, LSD1 (a lysine-4 specific histone demethylase) and PHF21A/BHC80. The Herpes Simplex virus ICP0 protein blocks the repression of viral genes by disrupting the interaction between CoREST and HDAC1/2.

Positive Control

Active Motif's 293 nuclear extract (Catalog No. 36033) can be used as a positive control for CoREST antibody.


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.


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