Target

  • Function

    Variant histone H2A which replaces conventional H2A in a subset of nucleosomes where it represses transcription. 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. Involved in stable X chromosome inactivation. Inhibits the binding of transcription factors and interferes with the activity of remodeling SWI/SNF complexes. Inhibits histone acetylation by EP300 and recruits class I HDACs, which induces an hypoacetylated state of chromatin. In addition, isoform 1, but not isoform 2, binds ADP-ribose and O-acetyl-ADP-ribose, and may be involved in ADP-ribose-mediated chromatin modulation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitous.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 histone H2A domain.
    Contains 1 Macro domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Monoubiquitinated at either Lys-116 or Lys-117. May also be polyubiquitinated. Ubiquitination is mediated by the CUL3/SPOP E3 complex and does not promote proteasomal degradation. Instead, it is required for enrichment in inactive X chromosome chromatin.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Chromosome. Enriched in inactive X chromosome chromatin and in senescence-associated heterochromatin.

Images

  • ab217090 staining mH2A1 in wild-type HAP1 cells (top panel) and H2AFY knockout HAP1 cells (bottom panel). The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated overnight at +4°C with ab217090 at a 1/500 dilution (pseudocolored in red) and ab195887, Mouse monoclonal [DM1A] to Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 488), at a 1/250 dilution (shown in green). Nuclear DNA was labelled with DAPI (shown in blue). This product also gave a positive signal under the same testing conditions in HAP1 cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min).

    Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).
