Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Histone deacetylase 8
Human Histone Deacetylase 8 (HDAC8) is a member of the class I Histone Deacetylases. HDACs are important enzymes for the transcriptional regulation of gene expression in eukaryotic cells. HDACs catalyze the removal of acetyl groups from lysines near the N-termini of histones. Human HDACs have been implicated in a variety of human diseases such as cardiomyopathy, osteodystrophy, neurodegenerative disorders, aging and cancer. Expression of HDAC8 is restricted to cells showing smooth muscle differentiation in normal human tissue and is a novel marker of smooth muscle differentiation. Like other class I and II HDAC members, the activity of HDAC8 is sensitive to HDAC inhibitor Trichostatin A (TSA).

Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-HDAC8 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 5mM EDTA and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (1-5 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
