A FLUOR DE LYS® fluorescent assay system. The HDAC6 Fluorescent Activity Assay/Drug Discovery Kit is a complete assay system designed to measure the lysyl deacetylase activity of the recombinant human HDAC6 included in the kit. The kit is ideal for chemical library screening for candidate inhibitors or activators or kinetic assay of the enzyme under varying conditions. The FLUOR DE LYS® HDAC6 assay is based on the FLUOR DE LYS® Substrate and FLUOR DE LYS® Developer combination. The assay procedure has two steps. First, the FLUOR DE LYS® Substrate, which comprises an acetylated lysine side chain, is incubated with HDAC6. Deacetylation of the substrate sensitizes the substrate so that, in the second step, treatment with the FLUOR DE LYS®Developer produces a fluorophore.

No. BML-KI177) substrate deacetylation.  Method: HDAC6 enzyme (400 ng/well) was incubated (37°C) with 12µM substrate at the indicated concentrations of Trichostatin A and Scriptaid. Reactions were stopped after 60min. with FLUOR DE LYS®  Developer II and the fluorescence was measured.

Figure 2: Kinetics of FLUOR DE LYS® SIRT1 (Prod. No. BML-KI177) substrate deacetylation by HDAC6.  Method: HDAC6 enzyme (500 ng/well) was incubated (37°C) with indicated concentrations of substrate. Reactions were stopped after 60min. with FLUOR DE LYS®  Developer II and fluorescence was measured. Points are the mean of two independent determinations, each comprising three replicates. Line is a non-linear least squares fit of the data to the Michaelis-Menten equation. The best-fit Km was 13.0µM and the Vmax 267 AFU/min/µg.
Figure 1: Reaction scheme of the HDAC6 fluorimetric activity assay. Method: Deacetylation of the substrate sensitizes it to the Developer II, which then generates a fluorophore (symbol).  The fluorophore is excited with 360nm light and the emitted light (460nm) is detected on a fluorometric plate reader.

Product Specification

Alternative Name:Histone deacetylase 6 fluorescent assay kit
Applications:Fluorescent detection, HTS
Activity assay, Cell-based assays
Use/Stability:Store all components except the microplate and instruction booklet at -70°C for the highest stability. The HDAC6 Enzyme (Prod. No. BML-SE508), must be handled with particular care in order to retain maximum enzymatic activity. Defrost it quickly in a RT water bath or by rubbing between fingers, then immediately store on an ice bath. The remaining unused enzyme should be refrozen quickly, by placing at -70°C. If possible, snap freeze in liquid nitrogen or a dry ice/ethanol bath. To minimize the number of freeze/thaw cycles, aliquot the enzyme into separate tubes and store at -70°C.

Scientific Background:HDAC6 is a class II HDAC, a group defined by its member’s homology to the yeast HDAC. HDAC6 falls into the class IIb subclass, along with HDAC10, but is unique among human HDACs in that it contains two full deacetylase domains. Primarily located to cytoplasm, HDAC6 is a tubulin deacetylase. Other HDAC6 substrates include Hsp90, cortactin and peroxiredoxins. Through these deacetylase activities and its ubiquitin and other binding activities, HDAC6 plays key regulatory roles in cell motility, protein folding, the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway, the aggresome pathway and autophagy, suggesting a central function in the coordination of cellular stress responses. HDAC6 is required for efficient oncogenic tumorigenesis. The mechanisms underlying this requirement may include HDAC6-mediated promotion of invasive cell motility, resistance to anoikis, removal of toxic misfolded proteins, inhibition of Hsp90 stabilization of metastasis suppressors and promotion of angiogenesis. HDAC6 null-mice, while outwardly normal, have increased resistance to chemical carcinogenesis. It is thus reasonable to suppose that HDAC6 inhibition may be a key factor in the anti-cancer effects of pan-HDAC inhibitors and that selective HDAC6 inhibitors may have the potential for greater effectiveness and reduced side-effects.
