  • Relevance

    Many proteins are post translationally modified. Modifications such as phosphorylation, glycosylation, ubiquitination and methylation have been shown to play an important role in the development, physiology and disease of animals and plants. Histone lysine methylation is regarded as a very stable modification with important functions in epigenetic gene control and for organizing chromatin domains.

Thank you for contacting us.
I am sorry that the vial you received did not contain the full amount of the product and I apologize for the inconvenience. I have issued a free of charge replacement vial with the order number of xxxxxx.
Could you please make sure that the customer centrifuges the vial containing liquid upon receipt in order to remove all the liquid which may be lodged in the cap.
We recommend centrifuging for 10,000 x g for 20 seconds to pull down the solution that might be trapped in the threads of the vial and under the lid. For smaller vials please place them within a microcentrifuge tube first before centrifuging.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.

Thank you for your message. You mentions ab80182 as well as ab76118 at the beginning of this email. I assume you are meant to refer to datasheet of ab76118 only, not ab80182? I apologise for any confusion. I have been in contact wtih our source in order to clarify this information. They have confirmed we were regrettably originally sent incorrect information for the previous enquiry. I can confirm that this antibody will not cross react with acetylated proteins, mono-methylated proteins, or di-methylated proteins. We aim to provide accurate and correct information to customers, and I am sincerely sorry there was some confusion in this case. I have removed the published enquiry that had the incorrect details on the datasheet. With regards to ab7315, I am sorry this did not come up in my previous search on our system for you. I can confirm that this is tested in IP, and wil be suitable for this application. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
