Histone Code Peptides, Microarrays & ELISA
As histones are a major focus of epigenetics, JPT’s Bioinformaticians have compiled a unique library of thousands of post-translationally modified and unmodified histone peptides. We offer this peptide library immobilized on Histone Code Peptide Microarrays or Histone Code Peptide ELISA, as purified individual Histone Code Peptides and as stable isotope labeled and quantified SpikeTides™ Set.
Properties of the Histone Peptide Library:
- Peptides from Histone H1, Histone H2A, Histone H2B, Histone H3 and Histone H4
- Post-translational modifications in various combinations representing many potential variants
- Post-translational modifications: Lys[acetylation, (mono-, di-, tri-) methylation, butyrylation, propylation, succinylation, malonylation]; Arg[mono-methylation, di-methylation (symmetric and asymmetric], Citrullin, and Ser, Thr, Tyr [phosphorylation]
- Use our custom peptide synthesis for any histone peptide we do not have in stock.
Individual Histone Peptides
Individual Histone Peptides
We offer a huge selection of histone peptides from Histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 with many post-translational modifcations and optional biotinylation, from histone tails and core sequences. Select your histone, modification(s) and histone isoform and receive your histone peptide within days!
All our histone peptides are produced as high quality peptides, purified and qualified by HPLC-MS and arrive as freeze-dried aliquots for increased shelf stability.

Testimonial for Histone Code Peptides, Microarrays & ELISA
" JPT’s new extremely high-density histone peptide array is a dramatic leap forward for analysis of the histone code hypothesis. The complete sequence coverage across core histones and histone variants as well as the presence of common and rare histone post-translational modifications – alone and in combination – makes this an unparalleled tool for studying the “writers” and “readers” of the histone code. My laboratory has used these arrays to ask the sequence and PTM dependence of a histone writer enzyme and we have discovered an activity specifying code that will keep us busy for years to come."
