Affinity Capture-Western

An interaction is inferred when a bait protein is affinity captured from cell extracts by either polyclonal antibody or epitope tag and the associated interaction partner identified by Western blot with a specific polyclonal antibody or second epitope tag. This category is also used if an interacting protein is visualized directly by dye stain or radioactivity. Note that this differs from any co-purification experiment involving affinity capture in that the co-purification experiment involves at least one extra purification step to get rid of potential contaminating proteins.


Differential distribution of unmodified and phosphorylated histone deacetylase 2 in chromatin.

Sun JM, Chen HY, Davie JR

Histone deacetylase 2 (HDAC2) is one of the histone-modifying enzymes that regulate gene expression by remodeling chromatin structure. Along with HDAC1, HDAC2 is found in the Sin3 and NuRD multiprotein complexes, which are recruited to promoters by DNA-binding proteins. In this study, we show that the majority of HDAC2 in human breast cancer cells is not phosphorylated. However, the minor ... [more]
