  • Product overview

    DNA methylation plays an essential role in biological processess through repression of transcription, while DNA demethylation is necessary, on the other hand, for epigenetic reprogramming of these genes. Active demethylation of DNA requires specific demethylase participation such as from MBD2.

    DNA demethylase (total) Activity Quantification Assay Kit (ab113472) allows the user to measure total DNA demethylase activity/inhibition at tremendously fast speeds and consistency; superior and safer than all other current methods. The kit is ready-to-use and provides all the essential components needed for measuring total DNA demethylase activity/inhibition.

    ab113472 is suitable for measuring DNA demethylase activity/inhibition from cultured cells/tissues or using purified enzyme/protein extracts.

    Glycerol, Triton X-100 etc might interfere with the kit components. ab113474 is the optimized kit for sample preparation.

    The detection is HRP-based and will not interfere by other enzymes/proteins.
