Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab36937 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Form
  • Additional notes

    - First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
    - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
    - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
    - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
    - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

  • Function
    Histone demethylase that specifically demethylates 'Lys-27' of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Demethylates trimethylated and dimethylated but not monomethylated H3 'Lys-27'. Plays a central role in regulation of posterior development, by regulating HOX gene expression. Demethylation of 'Lys-27' of histone H3 is concomitent with methylation of 'Lys-4' of histone H3, and regulates the recruitment of the PRC1 complex and monoubiquitination of histone H2A.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the UTX family.
    Contains 1 JmjC domain.
    Contains 8 TPR repeats.
  • Cellular localization

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your inquiry.

I apologize for the confusion. The peptides you purchased are in fact short sequences within the ranges listed on the datasheet. The "protein length" section just comes from SwissProt and is a reference for how long the full length protein actually is.

For ab36937, the peptide is 14 a.a. long.

For ab38111, the peptide is 18 a.a. long.

I hope this information helps. Please contact us with any other questions.
