  • Product overview

    Acetylation of histones such histone H3 has been involved in the regulation of chromatin structure and the recruitment of transcription factors to gene promoters. HATs (histone acetyltransferases) and HDACs (histone deacetylases) play a critical role in controlling histone H3 actylation. Histone acetylation is tightly involved in cell cycle regulation, cell proliferation and apoptosis. An imbalance in the equilibrium of histone acetylation has been associated with tumorigenesis and cancer progression.

     Histone H3 Acetylation Assay Kit (ab115102) allows the user to measure global acetylation of histone H3 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 to carry out a successful assay experiment. The kit is suitable for specifically measuring global histone H3 acetylation using a variety of mammalian cells including fresh and frozen tissues, and cultured adherent and suspension cells.

    Compared to ab115102, ab115124 is much faster and easier to handle with higher sensitivity and better reproducibility, but slightly less specificity. 1-2 ug of histone protein (min 50,000 cells) may be needed for each assay point if using ab115102, whi...

    Hello! The two kits ab115102 and ab113476 should be suitable for use in fish, while ab133099 is designed to study inhibitors and so fish is not suitable. Please let me know if you have further questions.

    I have discussed your question with some colleagues in the Lab and can confirm that RIPA buffer would not be compatible with the 10X Lysis Buffer.

    If needed, you can purchase the 10X Lysis Buffer component individually from us.

    >The kits are very similar. The main differences are that the ab115102 requires 5 hrs to run and you need to coat the antibody yourself while the kit ab115124 only requires 2.5 hours and the wells come pre-coated.

    Regarding the use of a 60 or 100mm plate - this is used for disecting tissue samples if you are using them, however, once you proceed with the histone extraction, the assay is then performed in the strip wells provided with the kit. The strips can be p...
