The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 11 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA titre using peptide based assay, 1:312500.
FunctionBinds to the inner side of the nucleosomal DNA thus altering the interaction between the DNA and the histone octamer. May be involved in the process which maintains transcribable genes in an unique chromatin conformation. Inhibits the phosphorylation of nucleosomal histones H3 and H2A by RPS6KA5/MSK1 and RPS6KA3/RSK2.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the HMGN family.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylation on Ser-21 and Ser-25 weakens binding to nucleosomes and increases the rate of H3 phosphorylation (By similarity). Phosphorylation favors cytoplasmic localization.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasmic enrichment upon phosphorylation. The RNA edited version localizes to the nucleus.
