AltaBioscience stock a selection of individual histone peptides and 5 different histone peptide sets.
The peptide sequences are derived from human histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 and include a range of modified amino acids.
Our ready-to-use histone peptide arrays are effective, convenient and made to the same high standards as our individual peptides. Ideal for assay development, regulatory studies and assessing the quality of antibodies used in reporter systems, these peptides are also powerful tools for epigenetic studies including:
- protein-protein interactions
- enzyme affinity studies
- antibody screening assays
Each histone peptide set comprises of 94 different histone peptides and can include post-translational modifications including acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation and citrullination. There are five ready-made sets available, the sequences of which can be downloaded as pdf files:
Set 1 Histone H3
Individual histone stock peptides
(from human histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4)

Protein and peptide (epitope) tag sequences are attached to proteins to facilitate easy detection and purification of expressed proteins.
In this article, we discuss methods for generating custom antibodies using peptide antigens including peptide antigen design considerations and options for generating antigenic peptides. In general, synthetic peptides are too small to elicit an immunogenic response.
This article is the 3rd in a series on the synthesis of peptides. It looks at solubilising peptides and peptide storage. Peptides are supplied as lyophilised materials, which are regarded as stable compounds for shipping purposes.
Our instrumentation allows for single batch synthesis of up to 576 small scale peptides in one operation, as well as individual peptides in multigram amounts.
In this article we detail some of the design considerations we use in peptides synthesis. This article is available to view here.
