GeneID: 15182 Mouse HDAC2

Swiss-port # P70288 Mouse Histone deacetylase 2

Gene Symbol HDAC2
Gene Full Name histone deacetylase 2
Background Histone Deacetylase 2 (HDAC2) is part of a family of histone deacetylases that are responsible for deacetylation of lysine residues in the histone core. HDAC2 is classified as a class I histone deacetylase and is ubiquitously expressed throughout the body (Kee et al, 2008). It has been shown that HDAC2 plays an important role in cardiac hypertrophy (Eom et al, 2011). Phosphorylation of ser394 is responsible for the hypertrophy-associated activation of HDAC2, whereas intrinsic basal activity is maintained by phosphorylation of ser422 and ser424 (EOM et al, 2011).
Research Area Cell Biology and Cellular Response antibody; Developmental Biology antibody; Gene Regulation antibody; Signaling Transduction antibody
Calculated MW 55 kDa
PTM S-nitrosylated by GAPDH. In neurons, S-Nitrosylation at Cys-262 and Cys-274 does not affect the enzyme activity but abolishes chromatin-binding, leading to increases acetylation of histones and activate genes that are associated with neuronal development. In embryonic cortical neurons, S-Nitrosylation regulates dendritic growth and branching. S-Nitrosylation interferes with its interaction with MTA1 (By similarity).

  • ARG52324 anti-HDAC2 phospho (Ser394) antibody WB image

    Western blot: Mouse heart lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~55k HDAC2 protein phosphorylated at Ser 394 (control) stained with ARG52324 anti-HDAC2 phospho (Ser394) antibody.
    Phosphospecificity is shown in the second lane (lambda-phosphatase: λ-Ptase).
    The blot is identical to the control except that the lysate was incubated in λ-Ptase (800 units/1mg protein for 30 min).
    The immunolabeling is completely eliminated by treatment with λ-Ptase.
