Histone Extraction Kit
The Histone Extraction Kit provides a simple method to acid precipitate histones from cell culture, tissue and primary cells (e.g. T-cells) while preserving histone post-translational modifications. The highly basic nature of histone proteins often precludes them from being isolated using traditional methods for protein extraction. Instead, histones must be isolated under acidic conditions to retain solubility. The inclusion of inhibitors helps to preserve histone modifications such as acetylation, methylation and phosphorylation. Each Histone Extraction Kit contains enough reagents for extractions from 2 x 96-well plates (192 rxns), or 100 rxns from cultured cell lines and tissues. Kits include buffers, protease inhibitors, phosphatase inhibitors, deacetylase inhibitors and optimized protocols for efficient recovery of core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 & H4).
