This is amino acids 1 to 20 fragment of the histone H3. Comparison the acetylation efficiency of different substrates showed that this peptide corresponding to the N-terminal of H3 histone has nearly identical acetylation efficiency as the H4 peptides. Acetylation of histones is generally associated with active transcription, constitutes a post-translational mark recognized by specific chromatin factors, and has been shown in vitro to prevent salt-induced folding of nucleosome arrays. Multisubunit histone acetyltransferase (HAT) complexes recognize and perform efficient acetylation on nucleosome substrates.
