The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/1000 - 1/2000. Detects a band of approximately 49 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 49 kDa).
1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Application notesIs unsuitable for Flow Cyt or IP.
FunctionResponsible for the deacetylation of lysine residues on the N-terminal part of the core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4). Histone deacetylation gives a tag for epigenetic repression and plays an important role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression and developmental events. Histone deacetylases act via the formation of large multiprotein complexes. Probably participates in the regulation of transcription through its binding to the zinc-finger transcription factor YY1; increases YY1 repression activity. Required to repress transcription of the POU1F1 transcription factor. Acts as a molecular chaperone for shuttling phosphorylated NR2C1 to PML bodies for sumoylation.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the histone deacetylase family. HD type 1 subfamily.
Post-translational modificationsSumoylated in vitro.
