Methylation of histone H3 at lysine 9 by ESET, G9a among other methyl transferases is involved in euchromatin gene silencing as well as in heterochromatin formation. Specifically, H3 (di-methyl K9) mediates heterochromatin formation by forming a binding site for HP1.
Histone H3 (di-methyl K9) Quantification Kit (Fluorometric) (ab115063) allows the user to specifically measure global di-methylation of histone H3K9 fluorometrically using a variety of mammalian cells (human, mouse, etc.) including fresh and frozen tissues, cultured adherent and suspension cells.
