  • 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.
    Contains 2 PWWP domains.
    Contains 1 SET domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm and Nucleus. Chromosome.

    Predicted band size: 152 kDa
    Observed band size: 170 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
    Additional bands at: 32 kDa, 55 kDa, 70 kDa (possible isoform). We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 4 minutes

    This antibody was raised against an immunogen that is predicted to recognize isoforms 1 and 3 of WHSC1/NSD2. The predicted molecular weights of isoforms 1 and 3 are 152 kDa and 71 kDa respectively.
  • IHC image of WHSC1/NSD2 staining in human testis formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab106180, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
