Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E B IP
Methylated lysine is found in a number of proteins such as histones, non-histone chromosomal proteins, ribosomal proteins, calmodulin, cytochrome C, etc. This evolutionarily conserved post-translational modification is an important process for many protein-protein interactions. Histone lysine methylation is a commonly studied posttranslational modification. Studies have shown the transcriptional repressor SUV39H1 can methylate lysine 9 of histone H3. It has been hypothesisized that methyl-lysine 9 provides a binding site for the chromodomain of HP1. HP1 binding is involved in the repression of euchromatic genes and is essential for heterochromatic silencing. The repressive role for transcription by methylated lysine 9 is validated by its presence at silent heterchormatic sites. Some studies have also speculated a stimulatory role for transcription by methylated histone lysine 4 due to presence at active transcription sites (1-3).
