SETD2 Chemiluminescent Assay Kit

Catalog #: 52060
Size: 96 reactions
$695
Background:
SETD2 is a histone methyltransferase that exhibits methylation activity toward histones H3-K36
Description:
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.
Synonym(s):
SET Domain Containing 2, HYPB1, HIF-1, KMT3A, KIAA1732, SETD2, PRDM2
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.
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.
