  • Function

    Probable histone methyltransferase (By similarity). May act as a transcription regulator that binds DNA and suppresses IL5 transcription.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed.
  • Involvement in disease

    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving WHSC1 is a cause of multiple myeloma tumors. Translocation t(4;14)(p16.3;q32.3) with IgH.
    Note=WHSC1 is located in the Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS) critical region. WHS results from by sub-telomeric deletions in the short arm of chromosome 4. WHSC1 is deleted in every case, however deletion of linked genes contributes to both the severity of the core characteristics and the presence of the additional syndromic problems.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the histone-lysine methyltransferase family. SET2 subfamily.
    Contains 1 AWS domain.
    Contains 1 HMG box DNA-binding domain.
    Contains 4 PHD-type zinc fingers.
    Contains 1 post-SET domain.

  • ab75359 (1µg/ml) staining WHSC in human testis using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus). Using this protocol there is strong nuclear staining.
    Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffer citrate pH6.1/ in a DAKO PT link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako envision flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that, for manual staining, optimization of primary antibody concentration and incubation time is recommended. Signal amplification may be required.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, Azide and Arginine (ab75359).

  • WHSC1/NSD2 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg HepG2 whole cell extract, 10µg of Mouse monoclonal to WHSC1/NSD2 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-). 
    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, HepG2 whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab75359.
    Secondary: Goat polyclonal to mouse IgG light chain specific (HRP) at 1/5000 dilution.
    Band: 71kDa: WHSC1/NSD2.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, Azide and Arginine (ab75359).
