Description

General description

Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are a large family of enzymes that remove acetyl groups from histone proteins. Site specific histone acetylation and deacetylation have been shown to activate or repress eukaryotic gene transcription, respectively, and as a consequence, HDACs play a crucial role in mammalian development and disease. HDACs are involved in important biological activities, such as cell differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis, and senescence.

With Sigma′s HDAC8 Inhibitor Screening Kit, HDAC8 Enzyme acts with the supplied Developer to deacetylate and then cleave the HDAC8 Substrate (R-H-K(Ac)-K(Ac)-AFC). This activity releases the quenched fluorescent group, AFC, which can be detected at Em/Ex=380/500 nm. In the presence of a HDAC8 inhibitor, AFC is not released and its fluorescence remains quenched. The kit provides a rapid, simple, sensitive, and reliable test, suitable for either individual tests or high throughput screening of HDAC8 inhibitors. Trichostatin A (TSA) is included as a control inhibitor to compare with the efficacy of test inhibitors.
