A single brain (approximately 10 mg) was used for each sample. We quantified the histone extracts using absorbance at 280 nm on a NanoDrop 1000 spectrophotometer. Each extraction yielded 20-40 ug of total histone protein. We then used the extracted histones in the Histone H3 Total Acetylation Detection Fast Kit (Fluorometric) (ab131561).
The kit is very easy to use and we will use it again in the future.
