Applications Key: W=Western Blotting, IP=Immunoprecipitation, F=Flow Cytometry, IF-IC=Immunofluorescence (Immunocytochemistry),

Specificity / Sensitivity

HP1γ Antibody detects endogenous levels of total HP1gamma protein. The antibody does not cross-react HP1alpha or HP1beta proteins.

HP1γ Antibody能够检测内源性HP1gamma总蛋白水平。该抗体不能与HP1 alpha或HP1beta蛋白发生交叉反应。

Source / Purification

Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the amino terminus of human HP1gamma. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.

Heterochromatin protein 1 (HP1) is a family of heterochromatic adaptor molecules involved in both gene silencing and higher order chromatin structure (1). All three HP1 family members (α, β and γ) are primarily associated with centromeric heterochromatin; however, HP1β and γ also localize to euchromatic sites in the genome (2,3). HP1 proteins are approximately 25 kDa in size and each contains a conserved amino-terminal chromodomain, followed by a variable hinge region and a conserved carboxy-terminal chromoshadow domain. The chromodomain facilitates binding to histone H3 tri-methylated on Lys9, a histone "mark" closely associated with centromeric heterochromatin (4,5). The variable hinge region binds both RNA and DNA in a sequence-independent manner (6). The chromoshadow domain mediates the dimerization of HP1 proteins, in addition to binding multiple proteins implicated in gene silencing and heterochromatin formation, including the SUV39H histone methyltransferase, the DNMT1 and DNMT3a DNA methyltransferases and the p150 subunit of chromatin-assembly factor-1 (CAF1) (7-9). In addition to contributing to heterochromatin formation and propagation, HP1 and SUV39H are also found complexed with retinoblastoma (Rb) and E2F6 proteins, both of which function to repress euchromatic gene transcription in quiescent cells (10,11). HP1 proteins are subject to multiple types of post-translational modifications, including phosphorylation, acetylation, methylation, ubiquitination and sumoylation, suggesting multiple means of regulation (12-14).

Heterochromatin protein 1 (HP1)作为一类异染色质调节因子参与了基因的沉默和染色质高级结构(1)。HP1家族总共有三个成员(α, β和γ),它们主要和异染色质的着丝粒相结合;但是HP1β和γ也在基因组的常染色质中存在(2,3)。HP1蛋白大约有25KD,并且都有保守的氨基酸末端染色质结构域,后面跟了一个可变的铰链区和一个保守的碳末端chromoshadow结构域。染色质结构域可以帮助结合到在Lys9位点发生了3甲基化的H3上,这是一个和着丝粒异染色质密切相关的组蛋白“标志”(4,5)。这个可变的铰链区可以通过sequence-independent的方式与RNA、DNA结合(6)。Chromoshadow 结构域除了结合包括SUV39 Hhistone methyltransferase、DNMT1、DNMT3a DNA methyltransferases 以及 the p150 subunit of chromatin-assembly factor-1 (CAF1) 在内的多种与基因沉默和异染色质形成的蛋白外,还介导HP1蛋白的二聚体化(7-9)。除了参与异染色质的形成和扩展,HP1和SUV39H同样也发现和retinoblastoma (Rb)与 E2F6 proteins这两种在静止期细胞中抑制基因转录的蛋白共同形成复合物(10,11)。HP1蛋白受到多种翻译后修饰包括:磷酸化,乙酰化,甲基化,泛素化和苏木化,这表明有多重调节方式(12-14)。
