The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/100 - 1/500. Epitope exposure is recommended.
Epitope exposure with citrate buffer will enhance staining.
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 SETD1A suggests that SETD1A and SETD1B make non-redundant contributions to the epigenetic control of chromatin structure and gene expression. Specifically tri-methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3 in vitro.
Cellular localizationNucleus speckle. Chromosome. Localizes to a largely non-overlapping set of euchromatic nuclear speckles with SETD1A, suggesting that SETD1A and SET1B each bind to a unique set of target genes.
