Target description

Histone H3.1t (UniProt: Q16695; also known as H3/t, H3t, H3/g) is encoded by the HIST3H3 (also known as H3FT) gene (Gene ID: 8290) in human. Histones are highly conserved basic nuclear proteins that are responsible for the nucleosome structure of chromatin in eukaryotes. They 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. Two molecules of each of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4) form an octamer, around which DNA is wrapped in repeating units, called nucleosomes, which limits DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries that require DNA as a template. Histone H3 features a main globular domain and a long N-terminal tail, which protrudes from the globular nucleosome core and can undergo several different types of epigenetic modifications that influence cellular processes. Acetylation of histone H3 occurs at several different lysine positions in the histone tail and is performed by a family histone acetyl transferases. Histone H3 can also undergo methylation as well as acetylation on lysine 9. Acetylation on lysine 9 (H3K9ac) is reported to impair methylation at arginine 9 (H3R8me2s). A balance between acetylation and methylation is important for the establishment of specific chromatin structures. Acetylation of lysine 14 (H3K14Ac) is commonly seen in genes that are being actively transcribed into RNA. Histone H3 is reported to be hyperacetylated at lysines 9 and 14 following UV irradiation. Studies have shown that nucleosomes with H3K14ac modification have a higher affinity for purified chromatin remodeling complex RSC (Remodels the Structure of Chromatin) and by anchoring RSC, H3K14Ac plays an important role in the unfolding of strongly positioned nucleosomes during repair of UV damage. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
