JMJD3 (KDM6B) Homogeneous Assay Kit

Catalog #: 50416
Size: 384 reactions
$1,725
Background:
JMJD3 is a JmjC-domain protein that exhibits demethylation activity toward di- and trimethyl-lysine 27 (H3K27me2/3) on histone H3.
Description:
The JMJD3 Homogeneous Assay Kit is designed to measure activity of the JMJD3 for screening and profiling applications, using AlphaLISA® technology. The key to the JMJD3 Homogeneous Assay Kit is a highly specific antibody that recognizes demethylated substrate. With this kit, only three simple steps on a microtiter plate are required for methyltransferase detection. First, a sample containing JMJD3 enzyme is incubated with the biotinylated substrate. Next, acceptor beads and primary antibody are added, then donor beads, followed by reading the Alpha-counts.
Synonym(s):
JMJD3, KDM6B
Supplied As:
Kit comes in a convenient AlphaLISA® format, with biotinylated histone H3 peptide substrate, primary antibody, demethylase assay buffer, and purified JMJD3 for 384 enzyme reactions.
Contraindications:
Avoid green and blue dyes that absorb light in the Alphascreen® signal emission range (520-620 nm), such as Trypan Blue. Avoid the use of the potent singlet oxygen quenchers such as sodium azide (NaN3) or metal ions (Fe2+, Fe3+, Cu2+, Zn2+ and Ni2+). The presence of >1% RPMI 1640 culture medium leads to a signal reduction due to the presence of excess biotin and iron in this medium. MEM, which lacks these components, does not affect Alphascreen® assays.

Instructions for use:
See assay kit data sheet for detailed protocol.
Storage / Stability:

12 months from date of receipt, when stored as directed. Kit components require different storage conditions. Be sure to store each component at the proper temperature upon arrival.

Application(s):
Great for studying enzyme kinetics and screening small molecular inhibitors for drug discovery and HTS applications.

Notes:

The buffer in this kit was reformulated in May of 2015 with a different reducing agent to improve assay performance. The old formulation can still be purchased upon special request.
