This peptide is histone H4 (1-21), acetylated at lysine 12. The N-terminus contains a C-terminus GG linker followed by a biotinylated lysine. The acetylation of histone H4 plays a crucial role in structural changes that amplifies the binding of transcription factors to their recognition sites within the nucleosomes. Provided at >95% peptide purity, this peptide was dissolved in distilled water at 1 mg/ml and re-lyophilized to powder form.
