Product Overview

Modulation of chromatin structure plays an important role in the regulation of transcription in eukaryotes. The nucleosome, made up of DNA wound around eight core histone proteins (two each of H2A, H2B, H3, and H4), is the primary building block of chromatin (1). The amino-terminal tails of core histones undergo various post-translational modifications, including acetylation, phosphorylation, methylation, and ubiquitination (2-5). These modifications occur in response to various stimuli and have a direct effect on the accessibility of chromatin to transcription factors and, therefore, gene expression (6). In most species, histone H2B is primarily acetylated at Lys5, 12, 15, and 20 (4,7). Histone H3 is primarily acetylated at Lys9, 14, 18, 23, 27, and 56. Acetylation of H3 at Lys9 appears to have a dominant role in histone deposition and chromatin assembly in some organisms (2,3). Phosphorylation at Ser10, Ser28, and Thr11 of histone H3 is tightly correlated with chromosome condensation during both mitosis and meiosis (8-10). Phosphorylation at Thr3 of histone H3 is highly conserved among many species and is catalyzed by the kinase haspin. Immunostaining with phospho-specific antibodies in mammalian cells reveals mitotic phosphorylation at Thr3 of H3 in prophase and its dephosphorylation during anaphase (11).

Application Description
This antibody worked great for our experiment. The background was low, and the staining was specific to the nucleus.

Procedural Details
Histone H3K9me3 (H3K9 trimethyl) polyclonal antibody was used as a negative control for a co-localization experiment using immunofluorescence, as our protein of interest does not bind H3K9me3. Pre-B cells were attached to coverslips, fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde, and permeabilized using Triton X-100. Cells were then incubated with anti-Histone H3K9me3 1:100 for one hour, followed by secondary antibody staining with Cy3 anti-rabbit 1:250 for 45 minutes. DAPI was used as nuclear stain.

Other Thoughts
Availability of multiple sizes/volumes of the product, relatively cheap compared to other companies, arrived fast, tested using multiple applications, very little background staining.

None with the antibody in particular, we have little to no experience with Epigentek antibodies so we were hesitant when purchasing (we weren’t sure how good the antibody would be).
