General description

Histone H3, also known as Histone H3.1t, H3/t, H3t, or H3/g, and encoded by the gene HIST3H3/H3Ft, is one of the core components of the nucleosome. The nucleosome is a histone octamer containing two molecules each of H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 assembled in one H3-H4 heterotetramer and two H2A-H2B heterodimers. 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. The octamer wraps approximately 147 bp of DNA. A classic nuclear marker, new expression is seen during S phase of the cell cycle. Histone H3 is often acetylated and or methylated multiple times. Changes in methylation or acetylation state of histone H3 together with similar modification on the sister histones is one key aspect of epigenetic gene expression and regulation.


Broad species cross-reactivity is expected based on sequence similarity.
This antibody recognizes Histone H3 at the N-terminus.


Epitope: N-terminus
KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to the N-terminus of human Histone H3.


Anti-Histone H3 Antibody is a Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody for detection of Histone H3 also known as histone 3-H3 & has been validated in ChIP, ICC & WB.
Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:500 dilution from a representative lot detected Histone H3 in HeLa cells.

Immunoprecipitation Analysis: 10 µg from a representative lot immunoprecipitated Histone H3 from 500 µg of HeLa acid extract. Immunoprecipitated sample was then subjected to Western Blotting using 0.5 µg/mL of the same antibody.

Chromatin Immunoprecipitaton: A representative lot from an independent laboratory immunoprecipitated Histone H3 from plant chromatin (Ng, D. W., et al. (2006). Plant Cell. 18(1):119-132.).
