Proteins can be post-translationally modified in many different ways, and a common post-transcriptional modification of Lysine involves acetylation. The conserved amino-terminal domains of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4) contain lysines that are acetylated by histone acetyltransferases (HATs) and deacetylated by histone deacetylases (HDACs). Acetylation is important for normal cell function and is involved in protein formation, drug biotransformation, regulation of DNA and other genetic elements and more.
Acetylation research requires a great diversity of life science products. We are dedicated to developing cutting edge research products to aid in the study of acetylation, including monoclonal antibodies, polyclonal antibodies, antibody conjugates, proteins, immunoassays, and small molecule inhibitors.View all Acetylation Products
