Methylation of histone H3 at lysine 9 by ESET, G9a among other methyl transferases mediates heterochromatin formation by forming a binding site for HP1. H3 (mono-methyl K9) is enriched in certain euchromatin domains which have been postulated to be transcriptionally silent.
Histone H3 (mono-methyl K9) Quantification Kit (Fluorometric) (ab115061) allows the user to specifically measure global mono-methylation of histone H3K9 fluorometrically using a variety of mammalian cells (human, mouse, etc.) including fresh and frozen tissues, cultured adherent and suspension cells.
