Histone H3K27me3 antibody (mAb) tested by dot blot analysis.

Dot blot of Histone H3 trimethyl Lys27 antibody.
Dot blot analysis was used to confirm the specificity of Histone H3 trimethyl Lys27 antibody for trimethyl Lys27 of histone H3. Recombinant methylated histone proteins corresponding to the immunogen and related sequences were spotted onto PVDF and probed with Histone H3 trimethyl Lys27 at 2 µg/ml. The amount of protein (picomoles) spotted is indicated next to each row. Lane 1: unmodified H3 protein. Lane 2: monomethyl Lys4 protein. Lane 3: dimethyl Lys4 protein. Lane 4: trimethyl Lys4 protein. Lane 5: monomethyl Lys9 protein. Lane 6: dimethyl Lys9 protein. Lane 7: trimethyl Lys9 protein. Lane 8: monomethyl Lys27 protein. Lane 9: dimethyl Lys27 protein. Lane 10: trimethyl Lys27 protein.

for Histone H3 trimethyl Lys27 antibody (mAb) (Clone MABI 0323)Background

Histone H3 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. Histone H1 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; these modifications play a major role in regulating gene expression. The methylation of histones can occur on two different residues: arginine or lysine. Histone methylation can be associated with transcriptional activation or repression, depending on the methylated residue. Lysine 27 of histone H3 can be mono-, di- or trimethylated (Histone H3 monomethyl Lys27, Histone H3 dimethyl Lys27 or Histone H3 trimethyl Lys27) by different histone methyltransferases such as EZH2 or NSD3. Methylation of this residue is mainly associated with transcriptional repression.

for Histone H3 trimethyl Lys27 antibody (mAb) (Clone MABI 0323)qPCR Primers

Active Motif's Human Positive Control Primer Set MYT1 (Cat. No. 71007) and Human Negative Control Primer Set 3 (Cat. No. 71023) have been validated for performing qPCR and endpoint PCR when this antibody has been used for ChIP on human samples. For ChIP experiments with this antibody on mouse samples, the Mouse Negative Control Primer Set 1 (Cat. No. 71011) has been validated for both qPCR and endpoint PCR.

Chromatin IP Assays

This antibody has been validated for use in ChIP and/or ChIP-Seq, and can be used with Active Motif's ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit or our magnetic bead-based ChIP-IT® Express Kits. For an overview of all of our ChIP products, please visit our Chromatin IP Page to learn about ChIP products designed for use with Histone H3K27me3 antibody (mAb).

Bridging Antibody to Improve ChIP, MeDIP and IP

Some isotypes of mouse IgG antibodies do not bind well to protein G-conjugated agarose/magnetic beads, which are commonly used in ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments. Capture efficiency can be improved by including an anti-mouse IgG bridging antibody because it binds with a strong affinity to both the protein G beads and the mouse IgG antibody. By increasing the affinity of the mouse primary antibody for the protein G bead, the Bridging Antibody for Mouse IgG can help improve the results of all ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments that use Histone H3K27me3 antibody (mAb).

Compatible Secondary Antibodies

Active Motif has developed a variety of high-quality secondary antibodies for most applications, with anti-rabbit and anti-mouse conjugates to a broad line of high-quality fluorescent molecules, as well as horse radish peroxidase (HRP).

for Histone H3 trimethyl Lys27 antibody (mAb) (Clone MABI 0323)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.
