Molecular Formula :
Description : This peptide is the N-terminal of H3 histone (1-20). It has nearly identical acetylation efficiency as the H4 peptides. Acetylation of histones is associated with transcription activity, constitutes a post-translational mark recognized by specific chromatin factors, and prevents salt-induced folding of nucleosome arrays in vitro. Multisubunit histone acetyltransferase (HAT) complexes recognize and perform efficient acetylation on nucleosome substrates.
