Histone H4 Antibodies

Epigenetics is the study of heritable cellular, and physiological traits by factors other than DNA sequence. Examples are simple chemical modifications, like methylation and acetylation to DNA and interacting partners. Since the basic structure of the respective nucleobase is retained, DNA methylation is not a genetic mutation but a modification. These changes are however they play a role in controlling how, where, and when certain genes are expressed.

Histone H4 is one of the slowest evolving proteins, and there appear to be no known sequence variants of histone H4. Browse our table below for antibodies against Histone H4.
