Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab10887 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
  • Application notesICC/IF: Suggested working dilution is 1/100 (see PMID: 17077127).
    IHC-FoFr: Use at an assay dependent dilution (PMID 19137063).
    WB: 1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 32 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 26 kDa).

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionHistone H3-like variant which exclusively replaces conventional H3 in the nucleosome core of centromeric chromatin at the inner plate of the kinetochore. Required for recruitment and assembly of kinetochore proteins, mitotic progression and chromosome segregation. May serve as an epigenetic mark that propagates centromere identity through replication and cell division.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the histone H3 family.
    • Cellular localizationNucleus. Chromosome, centromere, kinetochore. Localizes exclusively in the kinetochore domain of centromeres. Co-expressed with yemalpha.
