Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab66754 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 21 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 23 kDa).


  • FunctionHistone chaperone that facilitates histone deposition and histone exchange and removal during nucleosome assembly and disassembly. Cooperates with chromatin assembly factor 1 (CAF-1) to promote replication-dependent chromatin assembly and with HIRA to promote replication-independent chromatin assembly. Required for the formation of senescence-associated heterochromatin foci (SAHF) and efficient senescence-associated cell cycle exit.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ASF1 family.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by TLK1 and TLK2. Highly phosphorylated in S-phase and at lower levels in M-phase.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus.
