• Product name
    Anti-Histone H1 antibody [AE-4]
    See all Histone H1 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [AE-4] to Histone H1
  • Host species
  • Specificity
    Histone 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.

  • Function
    May 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.
  • Tissue specificity
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the histone H1/H5 family.

  • 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.
