JPT's Histone Code Analysis Services
Histones are subject to post-translational modifications (epigenetic marks) that influence chromatin structures. The histone code hypothesis suggests that combinations of these modifications play a role in the regulation of gene expression.
Based on our high content histone code peptide microarray we offer our unique histone code analysis services. The microarray presents 3800 unmodified or modified histone peptides that carry post translational modifications, including acetylation, methylation, butyrylation, propylation, succinylation, malonylation, citrullination and phosphorylation as well as various combinations.
Our microarray features:
- Histone tails with various composite histone marks for identification of antibody epitopes including possibly occluded epitopes
- Core sequences with modifications representing the growing number of identified modifications within the histone cores
- Variant sequences enabling the analysis of preferred non-canonical over canonical histones
Benefits of JPT's Histone Code Analysis Services
- Coverage of most known natural variants (sequence variants and PTMs)
- All-in-one assays service including incubation and analysis
- Tailored peptide microarrays upon request
