Methylation of histone H3 at lysine 4 (H3K4) is thought to be a global epigenetic mark in euchromatin and a mediator of activated transcription. H3K4 demethylation is regulated by KDM1/LSD1, which can remove di- and mono-methylation from H3K4, and the JARID proteins such as RBP2 which catalyzes the removal of methylation through a hydroxylation reaction.
Abcam's Histone Demethylase (H3K4) Activity Quantification Assay Kit (ab113455) allows the user to measure activity/inhibition of H3K4 specific histone demethylases using cell/ tissue extracts. The kit is ready-to-use and provides all the essential components needed for measuring histone demethylase H3K4 specific activity/inhibition from a broad range of species including mammalian cells/tissues, plants, and bacteria.
