Regulation of gene expression is mediated by several mechanisms, among them are DNA methylation, ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling, and posttranslational modifications of histones. These modifications include the dynamic acetylation and deacetylation of
Cellular Localization: Cytoplasmic and Nuclear
Positive Control: Total cell extracts of NIH3T3 fibroblast cells.
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
