AlphaLISA® biotinylated monoclonal antibody recognizing the carboxy-terminal end of human histone H3. Broad species cross-reactivity is expected based on sequence similarity. This product is designed to be used with AlphaLISA® Epigenetics Acceptor beads to detect modified full-length histone H3 in homogeneous AlphaLISA assays.
|Experimental Type||In vitro|
|Product Brand Name||AlphaLISA|

The interactions and bindingof proteins are implicated in a large number of biological processes. The needfor an efficient, highly sensitive assay to study large protein interactions is increasingly important. Alpha Technology is a highly flexible, homogeneous, no-wash assay ideal for the measurement of protein interactions and complexes as large as 200 nm in size
Alpha has been used to study a wide variety of interactions, including protein:protein, protein:peptide, protein:DNA, protein:RNA, protein:carbohydrate, protein:small molecule, receptor:ligand, and nuclear receptor:ligand interactions. Both cell-based and biochemical interactions have been monitored, and applications such as phage display, ELISA, and EMSA (electrophoretic mobility shift assay) have been adapted to Alpha.
The AlphaLISA® assay is a homogeneous immunoassay alternative to classical ELISA. AlphaLISA assays were originally utilized to detect analytesin cell cultures upernatants or serum/plasma samples.
Anti-mark antibodies coupled to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads or labeled with LANCE Ultra europium chelate were used for the successful optimization of robust and, sensitive epigenetic assays using histone H3-derived peptides as substrates.
In eukaryotes, the covalent modification of histones has a crucial role in chromatin architecture and plays an important part in a plethora of cellular processes, from chromatinre modeling and transcriptional regulation, to DNA repair and cell cycle control.
Covalen modification of DNA through methylation is catalyzed by specific DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs).
AlphaLISA technology is a powerful and versatile platform that offers highly sensitive, no-wash immunoassays using Alpha Donor and AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In this technical note, we present the optimization of an epigenetic enzymatic assay using a full-length histone H3 substrate.
