Histone H2A is one of the 5 main histone proteins involved in the structure of chromatin in eukaryotic cells. Featuring a main globular domain and a long N terminal tail H2A is involved with the structure of the nucleosomes of the ′beads on a string′ structure.
Broad species cross-reactivity is expected.
Recognizes Histone H2A, Mr 14 kDa.
KLH-conjugated, synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 88-97 (IRNDEELNKL-C) of human Histone H2A.
Anti-Histone H2A (acidic patch) Antibody is a Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody for detection of Histone H2A (acidic patch) also known as histone 2-H2ac, histone IIa & has been validated in ChIP & WB.
