Methylation of histone H3 at lysine 9 (K9) mediates heterochromatin formation by forming a binding site for HP1 and also participates in silencing expression at euchromatic sites. In mammalian cells, histone lysine methyltransferases such as SuVar39h and ESET among others are responsible for methylation of lysine 9 at histone H3.
Histone H3 (K9) Methyltransferase Activity Quantification Assay Kit (ab113453) allows the user to measure the activity or inhibition of individual histone methyltransferase (HMT) that specifically target histone H3 at lysine 9 (H3K9). The kit is ready-to-use and provides all the essential components needed to carry out a successful HMT activity/inhibition quantification experiment without the need for radioactivity or any special equipment.
ab113453 recognizes methylated H3 at lysine site 9.

Nuclear extracts were prepared from MCF-7 cells using the ab113474 and H3-K9 specific histone methyltrasferase activity (G9a) was measured. Purified G9a was spiked into the nuclear extract that has low concentration of nuclear proteins by dilution.
