Chromatin binding proteins

Chromatin binding proteins also known as 'readers' contain specific domains that enable them to bind epigenetic modifications. For example BRD4, a member of the BET family, binds acetylated lysine on histones through two bromodomains. Browse our chromatin resources and products such as antibodies and inhibitors of chromatin binding proteins.
