Methyltransferase HT activity kit

ADI-907-032 96 wells Inquire for pricing
Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
  • Universal - suitable for any SAM-dependent MT
  • Flexible - add desired amount of SAM
  • Sensitive - fluorescent detection allows for both DNA and protein assays
  • Simple - homogeneous mix-and-read plate-based assay
The Methyltransferase HT activity kit is a homogeneous mix-and-read fluorescent assay for the determination of any S-adenosyl-L-methionine (AdoMet/SAM) dependent methyltransferase activity. It is suitable for end-point or kinetic read options, which is ideal for determining mechanism of action, kinetics, and screening candidate compounds. This kit is ideal for high throughout (HT) applications as the SAM is provided separately giving you the flexibility to titrate the SAM to be in excess for your specific MT of interest. This is ideal for driving kinetics of low turnover enzymes and getting more utility by using less precious sample.

Scientific Background:The methylation of proteins, xenobiotic drugs, nucleic acids, and oligosaccharides is known to regulate important cellular events including meiosis, biosynthesis, development, signal transduction, chromatin remodeling, and gene silencing. The most frequent methyl donor for this type of enzymatic modification is S-adenosyl-L-methionine (AdoMet/SAM). Based on the predicted binding motif for AdoMet, it is estimated that 1% of the mammalian genome encodes a variety of substrate-specific methyltransferases.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
