How do I search for histones and their post-translational modifications?

Histones have an arsenal of potential post-translational modifications, or PTMs, that can be detected with antibodies 

Follow these steps to find an antibody that detects a specific modification at a specific residue on a specific histone. Start by searching for your histone. For example, histone H3.

You can then use the Target PTM filter to specify the type of modification and residue such as trimethylation at lysine 27.

Alternatively, search for the modified histone by typing its name into the search bar as H3K27me3.

Using these tips, you can easily find antibodies to a wide array of histone modifications!
