MA1-218 detects CBX5 from human and non-human primate samples. CBX5 has an approximate molecular weight of 22.2kDa.
MA1-218 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunofluorescence,and immunohistochemistry applications.
The MA1-218 Immunogen is the purified recombinant fragment of human CBX5 (AA: 1-191) expressed in E. Coli.
Heterochromatin protein-1 (HP1) is a methyl-lysine binding protein localized at heterochromatin sites, where it mediates gene silencing. It has been shown that mammalian methyltransferases that selectively methylate histone H3 on lysine-9 generate a binding site for HP1 proteins, a family of heterochromatic adaptor molecules implicated in both gene silencing and supranucleosomal chromatin structure. High-affinity in vitro recognition of a methylated histone H3 peptide by HP1 requires a functional chromodomain. Thus, the HP1 chromodomain is a specific interaction motif for the methyl epitope on lysine-9 of histone H3. In vivo, heterochromatin association of HP1 proteins is lost in Suv39h double-null primary mouse fibroblasts but is restored after reintroduction of a catalytically active SUV39H1 HMTase.
