PRMT8 is a histone methyltransferase that exhibits methylation activity toward histones H2A and H4.
The PRMT8 Homogeneous Assay Kit is designed to measure the activity of PRMT8 for screening and profiling applications, using AlphaLISA technology. The key to the PRMT8 Homogeneous Assay Kit is a highly specific antibody that recognizes methylated substrate. With this kit, only three simple steps on a microtiter plate are required for methyltransferase detection. First, a sample containing PRMT8 enzyme is incubated with the biotinylated substrate for one hour. Next, acceptor beads and primary antibody are added, then donor beads, followed by reading the Alpha-counts.
Great for studying enzyme kinetics and screening small molecular inhibitors for drug discovery and HTS applications.
