Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/500 - 1/2000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ChIP Use 1-5 µg for µg of chromatin.
ChIP/Chip Use 10 µg for µg of chromatin.
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 186 kDa.
IP Use at 1-4 µg/mg of lysate.
ICC/IF 1/400. Use with paraformaldehyde or methanol-fixed cells.


  • FunctionHistone methyltransferase that specifically methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3, when part of the SET1 histone methyltransferase (HMT) complex, but not if the neighboring 'Lys-9' residue is already methylated. H3 'Lys-4' methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. The non-overalpping localization with SETD1B suggests that SETD1A and SETD1B make non-redundant contributions to the epigenetic control of chromatin structure and gene expression.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 post-SET domain.
    Contains 1 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domain.
    Contains 1 SET domain.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus speckle. Chromosome. Localizes to a largely non-overlapping set of euchromatic nuclear speckles with SETD1B, suggesting that SETD1A and SETD1B each bind to a unique set of target genes.

  • Ab70378 (10 µg) was used to immunoprecipitate chromatin from K562 cells. Immunoprecipitated and reference DNA were amplified by ligation-mediated PCR and the products labeled with fluorescent dUTPs. The labeled ChIP and reference DNA were pooled, hybridized to a DNA microarray and analyzed. As a control a similar experiment was performed using normal rabbit IgG.
  • ab70378 (1/400) staining hSET1 in assynchronous HeLa cells (green). Cells were paraformaldehyde-fixed, permeabilised with 0.5% Triton X100 and counterstained with DAPI in order to highlight the nucleus (red). For further experimental details please see Abreview.
