New Histone H3 [dimethyl Lys9/phospho Thr6] Antibody Released

Littleton, CO, September 21, 2011 --( Today, Novus added a new Histone H3 [dimethyl Lys9/phospho Thr6] antibody to their growing line of EpiPlusTM histone modification antibodies. Over the past several months, Novus has collaborated with 21st Century Biochemicals, a leading manufacturer of custom antibodies and peptides, to generate the most well validated antibodies for modified histones and other epigenetic targets. All Epi-PlusTM antibodies have been extensively characterized and validated, and are of the highest quality compared to other similarly commercially available products.

Although dimethyl K9, phospho-T6 histone H3 is known to exist, very little comprehensive information about the importance of this modification and its mechanism has been published. The new Histone H3 [dimethyl Lys9/phospho Thr6] Antibody (NB21-1053) has been validated for Western blot, ChIP, dot blot, and immunofluorescent staining on human, mouse and rat cell cultures. This highly specific antibody is expected to accelerate research on a poorly understood antigen and progress epigenetics research on this target.
