Methylation of histone H3 at lysine 4 by Methyl transferases such as SET1, SET7/9, MLL and Trx among others occurs in mammals in several distinct genomic distributions. Enrichment of H3 (tri-methyl K4) is found at transcription start sites of active genes where they contribute to transcriptional initiation.
Histone H3 (tri-methyl K4) Quantification Kit (Colorimetric) (ab115056) allows the user to specifically measure global tri-methylation of histone H3-K4 colorimetrically using a variety of mammalian cells (human, mouse, etc.) including fresh and frozen tissues, cultured adherent and suspension cells.
