Histone H3 Total Quantification Kit (Colorimetric) (ab115091) enables the user to quantify levels of histone H3 proteins independent of their modified states. It can also be used for normalizing the modified histone H3 content of samples when run in parallel with Abcam's histone modification quantification kit series. ab115091 is suitable for specifically measuring total histone H3 on mammalian samples such as human, mouse, and rat, including fresh and frozen tissues and cultured adherent and suspension cells.
Histone H3 can undergo several epigenetic modifications that influence cellular processes such as transcription activation/inactivation, chromosome packaging, and DNA damage/repair. These modifications including acetylation, phosphorylation or methylation occur on the N-terminal tail domains of histone H3 through a variety of histone modifying enzymes. In most species, histone H3 is primarily acetylated at K9, K14, K18, K23 and K56, methylated at K4, K9, K27, K36 and K79, and phosphorylated at S10, S28, T3 and T11, respectively.

RelevanceCore component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Chromosome.
