The core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4) act as spools around which DNA winds. Covalent modification on the amino terminal of the core histones through de/acetylation, de/methylation and de/phosphorylation affect chromatin structure and exquisitely regulate gene expression.1-3
Histone hyperacetylation is correlated with increased transcription, whereas hypoacetylation correlates with transcriptional repression.2
AnaSpec, the world’s largest provider of on-demand GO peptides is pleased to announce the rapid expansion of our histone peptide selection. Histone GO
® Peptides include sequences that are acetylated and di- or tri-methylated. For sequences that are not found on this list, please request a custom quotation here
