G9a Chemiluminescent Assay Kit

Catalog #: 52001L
Size: 96 reactions
$695
Background:
G9a is a histone methyltransferase that exhibits methylation activity toward H3-K9.
Description:
The G9a Direct Activity Chemiluminescent Assay Kit is designed to measure G9a activity for screening and profiling applications. The key to the G9a Direct Activity Assay Kit is a highly specific antibody that recognizes methylated K9 residue of Histone H3. With this kit, only three simple steps are required for methyltransferase detection. First, S-adenosylmethionine is incubated with a sample containing assay buffer and methyltransferase enzyme for one hour. Next, primary antibody is added. Finally, the strips are treated with an HRP-labeled secondary antibody followed by addition of the HRP substrate to produce chemiluminescence that can then be measured using a chemiluminescence reader.

Supplied As:
Kit comes in a convenient format, with 8-well strips precoated with histone H3 peptide substrate, the antibody against methylated lysine residue of Histone H3, the secondary HRP-labeled antibody, S-adenosylmethionine, methyltransferase assay buffer, and p
Contraindications:
DMSO >1%, strong acids or bases, ionic detergents, high salt
