Product Overview

The EpiQuik™ Total Histone H4 Acetylation Detection Fast Kit (Colorimetric) is a complete set of essential components which enables the experimenter to detect if histone H4 is acetylated and quantify the amount of the acetylated histone H4. The kit is ready-to-use and provides all the essential components needed to carry out a successful assay experiment. The EpiQuik™ Total Histone H4 Acetylation Detection Fast Kit (Colorimetric) is suitable for specifically detecting acetylated histone H4 and quantifying the amount of acetylated histone H4 using a variety of mammalian cells (human, mouse, etc.) including fresh and frozen tissues, and cultured adherent and suspension cells. The kit has the following advantages:

  • Quick and efficient procedure, which can be finished within 2.5 hours.
  • Innovative colorimetric assay without the need for radioactivity, electrophoresis, or chromatography.
  • Captures histone H4 acetylated at any lysine site with the detection limit as low 2 ng/well and detection range from 5 ng-2 µg/well of histone extracts.
  • The control is conveniently included for the quantification of the amount of acetylated histone H4.
  • Strip microplate format makes the assay flexible: manual or high throughput.
  • Simple, reliable, and consistent assay conditions.

Principle & Procedure
The EpiQuik™ Total Histone H4 Acetylation Detection Fast Kit (Colorimetric) is designed for measuring total histone H4 acetylation in a fast format. In an assay with this kit, the acetyl histone H4 is captured to the strip wells coated with an anti-acetyl histone H4 antibody. The captured acetyl histone H4 can then be detected with a labeled detection antibody followed by a color development reagent. The ratio of acetyl histone H4 is proportional to the intensity of absorbance. The absolute amount of acetyl histone H4 can be quantified by comparing to the standard control.

Application Description
We analyzed the histone modifications associated with biologic drugs treatment in different time points of the treatment following the manufacturers┬┤ instructions. It is ready to use, easy and fast to perform.

Other Thoughts
The amount of Antibody buffer (C2) is quite restrictive. The kit does not include enough volume to perform pre-dilutions of the samples. When we measured the background of the empty plates that had been at room temperature for at least 15 minutes, you can see that the background is not homogenous. As the expected differences between our case and control samples are quite small, the variability found in the background may mask the specific differences within them. Nevertheless, I guess that it is difficult to obtain a totally homogenous background. It is important to underlie that all materials needed are included in the kit. To carry out the experiments you only need a microplate spectrophotometer and a centrifuge. The affinity of the antibodies for the histone modifications is very high which reduces the incubation times (60-90 minutes).
