Rabbit polyclonal antibody recognizing the histone H3 asymmetrically dimethylated at arginine 8. Histone H3 is one of the four proteins that are present in the nucleosome, the basic repeating unit subunit of chromatin, consisting of 147 base pairs of DNA wrapped around an octamer of core histone proteins (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4). It has been reported that asymmetric dimethylation of arginine 8 is catalyzed by PRMT2, and is associated with transcriptional activation.
