PA1-861 detects histone deacetylase 2 (HDAC2) from canine, hamster, human, mouse, non-human primate, rat tissues and cells.
PA1-861 has been successfully used in Western blot, ChIP, immunoprecipitation, immunofluorescence, flow cytometry, immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~55 kDa protein representing HDAC2 and a ~40 kDa protein of unknown identity from HeLa cell lysate. Immunocytochemical staining of HDAC2 in HeLa cells with PA1-861 results in nuclear staining.
The PA1-861 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C T(475) D T K G T K S E Q L S N P(488) of human HDAC2. This immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-070) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
HDAC2 belongs to the histone deacetylase family. Histone deacetylases act via the formation of large multiprotein complexes and are responsible for the deacetylation of lysine residues at the N-terminal regions of core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4). This protein forms transcriptional repressor complexes by associating with many different proteins, including YY1, a mammalian zinc-finger transcription factor. Thus, it plays an important role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression and developmental events. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
