The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Hypermethylated in cancer 1
Hypermethylated in cancer 1 protein
Zinc finger and BTB domain-containing protein 29
FunctionTranscriptional repressor. May act as a tumor suppressor. May be involved in development of head, face, limbs and ventral body wall.
Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed with highest levels found in lung, colon, prostate, thymus, testis and ovary. Expression is absent or decreased in many tumor cells.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family. Hic subfamily. Contains 1 BTB (POZ) domain. Contains 5 C2H2-type zinc fingers.
Post-translational modificationsAcetylated on several residues, including Lys-333. Lys-333 is deacetylated by SIRT1. Sumoylated on Lys-333 by a PIAS family member, which positively regulates transcriptional repression ativity and is enhanced by HDAC4.
