Variability in the quality of antibodies to histone post-translational modifications (PTMs) is a widely recognized hindrance in epigenetics research. Here, we produced recombinant antibodies to the trimethylated lysine residues of histone H3 with high specificity and affinity and no lot-to-lot variation. These recombinant antibodies performed well in common epigenetics applications, and enabled us to identify positive and negative correlations among histone PTMs.
