Histone Deacetylase Assay Kit (HDAC) by Merck
This kit contains nonradioactive components for radiolabeling and purifying histone H4 peptide with [3H]-acetyl CoA. The radiolabeled peptide is a suitable substrate for assay of HDAC activity. HeLa nuclear extract, which is rich in histone deacetylase activity, is included as a positive control. The HDAC inhibitor sodium butyrate is provided to demonstrate specificity of the deacetylase activity.
