• Product name
    Anti-Histone H1.1 antibody
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to Histone H1.1
  • Specificity
    Reacts with recombinant Human H1.1, not with other Human H1 isoforms or core histones. Does not react with histone H1 acid extracted from cell-lines such as breast cancer cell line T47D, because H1.1 is not expressed in this cell line. H1.1 is not expressed in many cell lines, as has been previously reported (Meergans et al, 1997)
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: WBmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide:


    , corresponding to amino acids 12-39 of Human Histone H1.1.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab17584 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
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 30 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 21.7 kDa). Human H1.1 is not present in many human cell lines. Cross reacts with a band of approx. 52kDa and 40kDa in nuclear extracts of T47D cell line.


  • Relevance
    Histones are basic nuclear proteins that are responsible for the nucleosome structure of the chromosomal fiber in eukaryotes. Two molecules of each of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4) form an octamer, around which approximately 146 bp of DNA is wrapped in repeating units, called nucleosomes. The linker histone, H1, interacts with linker DNA between nucleosomes and functions in the compaction of chromatin into higher order structures. This gene is intronless and encodes a member of the histone H1 family. Transcripts from this gene lack polyA tails but instead contain a palindromic termination element. This gene is found in the large histone gene cluster on chromosome 6. The C-terminal domain is the primary determinant of histone H1 binding to chromatin in vivo. The C-terminal region also shows the most differences in aa sequence between the H1 histone variants H1.0/1/2/3/4/5.
