Key features and details
- Mouse monoclonal [AE-4] to Histone H1
- Suitable for: IHC-P
- Reacts with: Human
- Isotype: IgG2a
Product nameAnti-Histone H1 antibody [AE-4]

DescriptionMouse monoclonal [AE-4] to Histone H1
SpecificityHistone H1 itself is a highly conserved protein and is practically identical in sequence across most species. Given this, species cross-reactivity may be expected. In blots of rat brain homogenate a duplet is observed at 27-29 kDa consistent with Histone H1. Speckled staining is observed in the nucleus of normal and malignant cells.
Tested Applications & Species
Application Species IHC-PHuman
Nuclei from myeloid leukamia biopsy cells.
- IHC-P: Human normal colon FFPE tissue sections.
Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.
Please check that this product meets your needs before purchasing. If you have any questions, special requirements or concerns, please send us an inquiry and/or contact our Support team ahead of purchase.

FunctionMay play a key role in the control of gene expression during oogenesis and early embryogenesis, presumably through the perturbation of chromatin structure. Essential for meiotic maturation of germinal vesicle-stage oocytes. The somatic type linker histone H1c is rapidly replaced by H1oo in a donor nucleus transplanted into an oocyte. The greater mobility of H1oo as compared to H1c may contribute to this rapid replacement and increased instability of the embryonic chromatin structure. The rapid replacement of H1c with H1oo may play an important role in nuclear remodeling.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the histone H1/H5 family.
Contains 1 H15 (linker histone H1/H5 globular) domain.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Chromosome.

IHC image of ab71594 staining Histone H1 in Human normal colon formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue* sections, performed on a Leica Bond. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab71594, 1/1000 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX. No primary antibody was used in the negative control (shown on the inset).
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
