Type:DNA Binding Proteins
Shipping Condition:Dry Ice
Unit(s): 50 ug


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; H3.2-Q71DI3 *; H4-P62805) wrapped by 147 base pairs of 601 positioning sequence DNA. Histone H3 (created by a proprietary semi-synthetic method) contains symmetrically dimethylated arginine at position 8. 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. * H3R8me2s has a Cys to Ala substitution at position 110.
