Nucleosome, Recombinant Human, H4K20me2 dNuc Description: Mononucleosomes assembled from recombinant human histones expressed in E. coli (two each of histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4; accession numbers: H2A-P04908; H2B-O60814; H3.1-P68431; H4-P62805) wrapped by 147 base pairs of 601 positioning sequence DNA. Histone H4 (created by a proprietary synthetic method) contains
dimethyl-lysine at position 20. The nucleosome is the basic subunit of chromatin. The 601 sequence, identified by Lowary and Widom, is a 147-base pair sequence that has high affinity for histone octamers and is useful for nucleosome assembly and contains a 5’ biotin-TEG group.

Western Blot Data: Western Analysis of Nucleosome, Recombinant Human, H4K20me2. Top Panel: Unmodified H4 (Lane 1) and H4K20me2 containing nucleosomes (Lane 2) were probed with an anti-H4K20me2 antibody and analyzed via ECL readout. Only the H4K20me2 sample produced a detectable signal. Bottom Panel: Detail from Coomassie stained protein gel showing unmodified nucleosomes (Lane 1) and H4K20me2 nucleosomes.
