KMD1/LSD1 (Lysine Specific Histone Demethylase 1) is a histone demethylase that only acts on mono- or di-methylated lysines. KDM1/LSD1 acts as a co-repressor by mediating demethylation of H3(meK4), a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation.
KDM1/LSD1 Activity Quantification Assay Kit (Colorimetric) (ab113459) is designed for the easy and fast colorimetric measurement of KDM1/LSD1 activity or inhibition. The antibody-based, immunospecific method directly detects KDM1/LSD1-converted demethylated products, rather than by-products, in a 96 stripwell microplate format.
This kit may cross react with LSD2.

RelevanceHistone demethylase that demethylates both 'Lys-4' (H3K4me) and 'Lys-9' (H3K9me) of histone H3, thereby acting as a coactivator or a corepressor, depending on the context. Acts by oxidizing the substrate by FAD to generate the corresponding imine that is subsequently hydrolyzed. Acts as a corepressor by mediating demethylation of H3K4me, a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Demethylates both mono- (H3K4me1) and di-methylated (H3K4me2)H3K4me. May play a role in the repression of neuronal genes. Alone, it is unable to demethylate H3K4me on nucleosomes and requires the presence of RCOR1/CoREST to achieve such activity. Also acts as a coactivator of androgen receptor(ANDR)-dependent transcription, by being recruited to ANDR target genes and mediating demethylation of H3K9me, a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression. The presence of PRKCB in ANDR-containing complexes, which mediates phosphorylation of 'Thr-6' of histone H3 (H3T6ph), a specific tag that prevents demethylation H3K4me, prevents H3K4me demethylase activity of KDM1A. Demethylates di-methylated 'Lys-370' of p53/TP53 which prevents interaction of p53/TP53 with TP53BP1 and represses p53/TP53-mediated transcriptional activation. Demethylates and stabilizes the DNA methylase DNMT1. Required for gastrulation during embryogenesis. Component of a RCOR/GFI/KDM1A/HDAC complex that suppresses, via histone deacetylase (HDAC) recruitment, a number of genes implicated in multilineage blood cell development.
