This is histone H3 (1-21) with deimination of Arg2, Arg8, and Arg17 to Citrulline (Cit). Its C-terminal is biotinylated through a GGK linker and blocked by an amide group. Deimination by peptidyl arginine deiminase 4 (PADI4) prevents methylation at these sites and blocks transcriptional activation. Provided at >95% peptide purity, this peptide was dissolved in distilled water at 1 mg/ml and re-lyophilized to powder form.
