Description: Mononucleosomes assembled from recombinant human histones expressed in E. coli (two each of histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4; accession numbers: H2A-P04908; H2B-O60814; H3.1-P68431; H4-P62805) wrapped by 147 base pairs of 601 positioning sequence DNA. Histone H4 (created by a proprietary fully synthetic method) contains acetyl-lysine at position 12. The nucleosome is the basic subunit of chromatin. The 601 sequence, identified by Lowary and Widom, is a 147-base pair sequence that has high affinity for histone octamers and is useful for nucleosome assembly and contains a 5' biotin-TEG group.
Nucleosome, Recombinant Human, H4 K12Ac are highly purified and are suitable for use as substrates in enzyme screening assays or for effector protein (especially bromodomain) binding experiments. Nucleosome, Recombinant Human, H4 K12Ac from EpiCypher does not contain free DNA which could alter assayed activities.
