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 synthetic method) contains trimethyl-lysine at position 20. 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.
Nucleosome, Recombinant Human, H4K20me3 are highly purified and are suitable for use as substrates in enzyme screening assays or for effector protein binding experiments. Nucleosome, Recombinant Human, H4K20me3 from EpiCypher does not contain free DNA which could alter assayed activities.
