Histones are relatively small proteins that contain a high proportion of positively charged amino acids, e.g., arginine and lysine. This positive charge allows histones to bind tightly to the negatively charged DNA. There are five basic types of histone molecules called H1, H2A, H2B, H3, and H4. Histones are abundantly present in virtually all eukaryotic cells. Human histone H2B is a 125 amino acid protein.

This antibody was generated by immunizing rabbits with a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues 111-125 AVSEGTKAVTKYTSS of human Histone H2B; GenBank no. CAI19747.1. This peptide sequence is 100% conserved between multiple species including human, mouse, rat, dog, chimpanzee, cow, chicken, duck, zebrafish, and drosophila.

Application Notes
A 15 kDa band is observed. The antibody is routinely quality controlled in human lysates.

Histone H2B Antibody WB1

Top: Western blot analysis of Histone H2B in human PBMC lysate with IMG-359.Bottom: Western blot analysis of fractionated Cos-7 cells using IMG-359 anti-Histone H2B. Cos-7 cells were fractionated into nuclear cytosolic/membrane fractions. Approximately ~15ug of each fraction was separated on SDS PAGE. Lane 1, Nuclear fraction. Lane 2, Cytosolic/membrane fraction.

Histone H2B Antibody IHC

Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human heart stained with Histone H2B antibody at 10 ug/ml.

Staining of formalin-fixed tissues is enhanced by boiling tissue sections in 10 mM sodium citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
