When K20 is di-methylated on H4, the downstream effect is silencing of genes. This modification is also necessary and sufficient for 53BP1 binding, which is a prerequisite for DNA repair, a highly conserved mechanism. H4K20me2 is associated with hypoacetylation, and inactivation of certain genes. NSD1 and Suv420h1/2 trigger the dimethylation of K20, but only after SET8 catalyzes the mono-methylation of the same lysine, indicating a complex regulation of this modification that can so seriously affect replication and stability of genomic information. Anti-Histone H4 are ideal for researchers interested in Chromatin Modifiers, Chromatin Research, DNA Repair, DNA replication Transcription Translation and Splicing, Histones and Modified Histones, and Epigenetics research.

Human, C. elegans
Conjugated Peptide
Histone H4 [Dimethyl Lys20] affinity purified antibody was prepared from whole rabbit serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic dimethylated peptide surrounding Lysine 20 of human Histone H4.
Anti-Histone H4 [Dimethyl Lys20] was affinity purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography. This antibody reacts with human Histone H4. A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross-reactivity with Human, mouse, and C. elegans. Predicted to react with most mammal species. Cross-reactivity with Histone H4 from other sources has not been determined.

Application Details

ChIP, Dot Blot, IF, WB
Anti-Histone H4 [Dimethyl Lys20] antibody is tested for Western Blot, Dot Blot, Chromatin Immunoprecipitation, Immunofluorescence, and Immunocytochemistry. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user. Expect a band approximately ~13 kDa corresponding to Histone H4 protein by Western Blotting in HeLa histone prep lysate or the appropriate cell lysate or extract. Epi-Plus™ antibody production in collaboration with Novus Biologicals.
