Catalog # : EPX-04-RH
Source : Human
Expressed in : E. Coli
Quantity : 50ug of recombinant H3.3-H4 tetramers at 1ug /ul
Histone H3.3 associates with H4 to form an H3.3-H4 tetramer, a core component of the nucleosome (1). The nucleosome is the basic unit of chromatin and consists of 147 base pairs of DNA wrapped around an octamer of core histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 (2). The histone variant H3.3 replaces conventional H3.1 in a wide range of nucleosomes in active genes and constitutes the predominant form of histone H3 in non-dividing cells and is incorporated into chromatin independently of DNA synthesis (1, 3).
Recombinant human histone H3.3-H4 dimers were produced in E. Coli as fusion proteins with an N-terminal 6xHis or FLAG epitopes, purified using FPLC and formulated in a storage buffer containing 20mM Tris-Cl pH 7.9, 1mM EDTA, 1M NaCl, 0.5mM PMSF and 1mM DTT. Protein concentration was determined by spectrometry.
Each lot has been evaluated by ESI-TOF analysis and 12% SDS-PAGE (NuPAGE MOPS SDS, Invitrogen).
