  • Product overview

    Acetylation of histones such histone H4 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 H4 acetylation. Reversible acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 is believed to correlate with potential transcriptional activity of eukaryotic chromatin domains. The reversible lysine acetylation of histone H4 may play a vital role in the regulation of many cellular processes including chromatin dynamics and transcription, gene silencing, cell cycle progression, apoptosis, differentiation, DNA replication and repair, nuclear import and neuronal repression.

    Histone H4 Total Acetylation Detection Fast Kit (Colorimetric) enables the user to colorimetrically detect and quantify if histone H4 is acetylated. The kit is ready-to-use and provides all the essential components needed to carry out a successful assay experiment. Histone H4 Total Acetylation Detection Fast Kit (Colorimetric) is suitable for specifically measuring total histone H4 acetylation using a variety of mammalian cells including fresh and frozen tissues, and cultured adherent and suspension cells.

Customer reviews and Q&As

The detection antibody in ab115124 kit is labeled with signal reporter already. But H4 antibody included in the kit ab115125 is not and needs to be labeled by signal reporter and enhanced with enhancer during the assay.

1. Yes, it is possible for tissue or cell pellets to be frozen before extracting histone proteins.

2. The minimum amount of histone protein required as input for these assays are 50 ng (both for the colorimetric and fluorometric kits...
