  • Function
    Core histone-binding subunit that may target chromatin remodeling factors, histone acetyltransferases and histone deacetylases to their histone substrates in a manner that is regulated by nucleosomal DNA. Component of several complexes which regulate chromatin metabolism. These include the type B histone acetyltransferase (HAT) complex, which is required for chromatin assembly following DNA replication; the core histone deacetylase (HDAC) complex, which promotes histone deacetylation and consequent transcriptional repression; the nucleosome remodeling and histone deacetylase complex (the NuRD complex), which promotes transcriptional repression by histone deacetylation and nucleosome remodeling; and the PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex, which promotes repression of homeotic genes during development; and the NURF (nucleosome remodeling factor) complex.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the WD repeat RBAP46/RBAP48/MSI1 family.
    Contains 7 WD repeats.

Thank you for your patience. The originator of ab3535 has said that the antibody should not cross react with the RbAP48 protein. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions.

Thank you for your enquiry. For ab86 and ab488, the antibodies have not been tested against RbAp46 so we do not know whether or not the antibodies would react with it. I'm still waiting for information on ab3535 and will let you know when I receive.
