JMJD1A (KDM3A) Homogeneous Assay Kit

Catalog #: 50412
Size: 384 reactions
The JMJD1A Homogeneous Assay Kit is designed to measure activity of the JMJD1A for screening and profiling applications. JMJD1A, also known as KDM3A, is a JumonjiC (JmjC) domain-containing histone lysine demethylase that exhibits demethylation activity toward monoand dimethyl-lysine 9 on histone H3. The key to the JMJD1A 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 demethylase activity detection. First, a sample containing JMJD1A enzyme is incubated with the biotinylated substrate. Next, acceptor beads and primary antibody are added, then donor beads, followed by reading the Alpha-counts.
Supplied As:
The JMJD1A Homogeneous Assay Kit comes in a convenient AlphaLISA® format, with biotinylated histone H3 peptide substrate, primary antibody, demethylase assay buffer, and purified JMJD1A for 384 enzyme reactions.
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 culture medium RPMI 1640 at >1% leads to 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:
Stable at least 6 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.
Great for studying enzyme kinetics and HTS applications.

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.
