Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab4462 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
IHC-P 1/1000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 15 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 13.5 kDa).
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for ICC/IF.
  • Target

    • FunctionVariant histone H2A which replaces conventional H2A in a subset of nucleosomes. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling. May be involved in the formation of constitutive heterochromatin. May be required for chromosome segregation during cell division.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the histone H2A family.
    • Post-translational
      modifications
      Monoubiquitination of Lys-122 gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression.
      Acetylated on Lys-5, Lys-8 and Lys-12 during interphase. Acetylation disappears at mitosis.
      Monomethylated on Lys-5 and Lys-8 by SETD6. SETD6 predominantly methylates Lys-8, lys-5 being a possible secondary site.
      Not phosphorylated.

      Predicted band size : 13.5 kDa
      Observed band size : 15 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)


      Exposure time : 3 minutes
    • ab4462 (1/1000) staining Histone H2A.Z in paraffin-embedded Human pancreatic cancer tissue.  Tissue underwent fixation in formaldehyde, peroxidase blocking, protein blocking and heat mediated antigen retrieval.  After the primary antibody incubation a rabbit anti-rat link was used before the application of the secondary antibody which was goat anti rabbit/mouse conjugated to HRP.  For further experimental details please refer to abreview.
