Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat Histone Deacetylase 2/HDAC2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of K562 human chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line, Rat-2 rat embryonic fibroblast cell line, and NIH-3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Histone Deacetylase 2/HDAC2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7679) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Histone Deacetylase 2/HDAC2 at approximately 60 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Histone Deacetylase 2/HDAC2

HDAC2 (Histone deacetylase 2; also HD2) is a 55-60 kDa nuclear member of the class I subfamily, histone deacetylase family of transcriptional regulators. It is found in a variety of cell types including monocytes, cardiac muscle cells and neurons. HDAC2 is also crucial for embryonic development. HDAC2 catalyzes the hydrolytic release of acetyl groups from acetylated histone proteins. Within the context of a large complex, this has the effect of repressing gene activity. Human HDAC2 is 488 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains one histone deacetylation domain (aa 29-388), plus sites for phosphorylation, nitrosylation, ubiquitination, and nitration. There is one alternative start site at Met31. Over aa 386-488, human HDAC2 shares 98% and 53% aa sequence identity with mouse HDAC2 and human HDAC1, respectively.
