Active Motif biotinylated histone peptides are suitable for use in a variety of binding, pull-down and enzymatic assays for the study of proteins that interact with histones and that read, write or erase histone modifications. 

Application Notes

Spin vial briefly in microfuge. Reconstitute with sterile distilled water and vortex briefly until resuspended. Aliquot reconstituted peptide to avoid repeated freeze-thawing.

Protein Details

A synthetic peptide derived from Histone H3.1, amino acids 1-21, with an added lysine residue containing a biotin moiety and a C-terminal amide group (CONH2). C-term biotinylated Lys residue is separated with two Gly (provide short spacer) and one Tyr (provides accurate UV quantification) from the rest of the peptide sequence. The presence of the lysine residue is for quantitation and does not affect peptide functionality.
