SETD2 Chemiluminescent Assay Kit

Catalog #: 52060
Size: 96 reactions
SETD2 is a histone methyltransferase that exhibits methylation activity toward histones H3-K36
The SETD2 Direct Activity Chemiluminescent Assay Kit is designed to measure SETD2 activity for screening and profiling applications. The key to the SETD2 Chemiluminescent Assay Kit is a highly specific antibody that recognizes methylated K36 residue of Histone H3. With this kit, only three simple steps on a microtiter plate 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 plate is 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 strip format, with a 96-well plate precoated with histone H3 peptide substrate, purified SetD2 and reagents for 100 enzyme reactions.
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.

Assay Kit Components

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.

Great for studying enzyme kinetics and screening small molecular inhibitors for drug discovery and HTS applications.
