Methylation of histone H3 at lysine 27 has an important role in transcription repression and it is catalyzed by G9a and Polycomb Groups enzymes such as EZH2. In particular, tri-methylation of histone H3 at lysine 27 (H3 (tri-methyl K27)) is a facultative heterochromatin mark, which promotes the recruitment of polycomb group proteins for gene silencing. Increased global histone H3 (tri-methyl K27) is also found to be involved in some pathological processes such as cancer progression.
Abcam's Histone H3 (tri-methyl K27) Assay Kit (ab115051) is suitable for specifically measuring global histone H3K27 tri-methylation using a variety of mammalian cells including fresh and frozen tissues, cultured adherent and suspension cells.
