The Kinetic HDAC2 Assay Kit is a complete assay system designed to measure histone deacetylase 2 (HDAC2) activity kinetically for screening and profiling applications. It comes in a convenient 96-well format, with all the reagents necessary for 100 fluorescent HDAC2 activity measurements. In addition, the kit includes purified HDAC2 enzyme and a potent HDAC inhibitor, SAHA, for use as a positive and negative control. The Kinetic HDAC2 Assay Kit is based on a unique fluorogenic substrate and developer combination. This assay method eliminates dealing with the radioactivity, extraction, and chromatography aspects of traditional assays. Using this kit, only one simple step for setting up the HDAC2 reaction on a microtiter plate is needed and then the HDAC2 activity level can be measured kinetically using a fluorescence reader.
Great for studying enzyme kinetics and screening small molecular inhibitors of HDAC2 for drug discovery and HTS applications.
