Histones

Histones H3, H4, H2A and H2B form the nucleosome around which our DNA wraps. Histone tails are targets of epigenetic modification–including methylation and ubiquitination– that function to regulate gene expression. We offer tools to study histone modifications, such as antibodies and kits for ChIP, ChIP-seq, histone extraction and quantification.

Features

A guide to histone modifications

Learn about histone modifications such as methylation, acetylation and phosphorylation, and how to study their role in Epigenetics.

Epigenetic modifications poster

Created in association with Tony Kouzarides and Andy Bannister of the Gurdon Institute.

Antibodies to histone modifications

Our expanding range of ChIP grade antibodies to histone modifications, from common targets to more recently discovered ones.

Histone extraction protocol
