HDAC4 is a 140 kD class II histone deacetylase similar to the yeast HDA1 protein. This nuclear protein operates in concert with histone acetyltransferases to control core histone acetylation in highly conserved lysine residues. HDAC activity has been associated with transcriptional repression and nucleosomal condensation. HDAC4 uses active nuclear export to shuttle between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. HDAC4 is modified by phosphorylation by CaM kinase I or IV. HDAC4 has been reported to interact with 14-3-3 in the cytoplasm and MEF2A, HDAC3, NcoR and SMRT in the nucleus. Anti-HDAC4 antibodies are ideal for researchers interested in Breast Cancer, Cancer, Cell Cycle and Replication, Chromatin Research, Epigenetics, and Histone Deacetylases research.
HDAC4 affinity purified antibody was prepared from whole rabbit serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the internal region surrounding 600-650aa of human HDAC4.
