To support epigenetic research and our Epi-Plus antibodies, Rockland offers a comprehensive group of peptides to provide a one stop shop for epigenetic researchers.
Epigenetics (“above” genetics) is the study of DNA, RNA and protein modifications that do not involve changes in gene sequences. The modifications involve the acetylation and/or methylation of DNA or protein and are referred to as “Epigenetic marks”. These marks, studied primarily in histones and other proteins that control the regulation of gene expression, transcription, and protein-protein interaction, have been implicated in an array of human pathophysiological conditions that includes cancer, obesity, diabetes, drug addiction (and addictive phenotypes in general), and post-traumatic stress disorder. The pattern of Epigenetic marks on histones coordinate the binding of repressors, activators, and other proteins. Current research is focused on understanding how specific patterns of marks can act in a coordinated fashion to generate a specific phenotype.
