The EpiQuik™ In Situ Histone H3-K27 Tri-Methylation Assay Kit is a convenient package of tools that allows the experimenter to specifically measure histone H3-K27 tri-methylation in situ using cultured adherent cells. The kit has the following advantages:
Principle & ProcedureEpiQuik™ In Situ Histone H3-K27 Tri-Methylation Assay Kit is a whole cell-based detection of tri-methylated H3-K27. In this assay, adherent cells are cultured in conventional 96-well microplates. After your experimental treatment, cells are fixed and permeabilized. The tri- methylated H3-K27 is then detected by an anti-tri-methyl H3-K27 antibody. The ratio or amount of tri-methylated H3 -K27 can be quantified through HRP conjugated secondary antibody-color development system and is proportional to the intensity of color development.
