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
Set 2 Histone H2A, H2B + H4 library
Set 3 Histone H3 N-terminal library
Set 4 Histone Acetyl Lysine Library
Set 5 Histone phosphorylation and Arginine methylation

Histone peptides and microarrays
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.
AltaBioscience has provided custom synthesis of histone peptides from human H2a, H2b, H3 and H4 regions for many years, having collaborated with the original scientist who developed the idea for histone assays.
Peptide antigens for antibody generation
Suitable for both monoclonal antibody production and polyclonal antibody production, our peptide synthesis experts can assist with peptide antigen design using our epitope design software thereby suggesting antigenic peptide regions likely to provide the best immune response.
Influenza virus peptides
Although there are ways to combat influenza viruses, they have evolved to mutate frequently in order to evade the host’s immune system.
Protein and peptide tags
Protein and peptide (epitope) tag sequences are attached to proteins to facilitate easy detection and purification of expressed proteins.
