Product Information: HDAC3 Inhibitor Screening Kit: High-Throughput Adaptable Fluorometric Assay to Screen HDAC3 Inhibitors. Rapid, Reliable, Simple & Sensitive. Includes Inhibitor Control, Trichostatin A. 100 Assays.

Background: Histone deacetylases (HDACs) represent a large family of enzymes identified as key regulators of nucleosomal histone acetylation, a major event that controls eukaryotic gene transcription and are classified into three groups. They are believed to be involved in important biological activities, such as cell differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis, and senescence. In MyBioSource's HDAC-3 Inhibitor screening Kit, HDAC-3 and developer will deacetylate and cleave the substrate [Arg-His-Lys-Lys(Ac)-AFC] to release the quenched fluorescent group (AFC), which can be detected at Em/Ex=380/500 nm. In presence of a HDAC-3 inhibitor, the cleavage will be inhibited. The kit provides a rapid, simple, sensitive, and reliable test, which is also suitable for high throughput screening of HDAC-3 inhibitors. Trichostatin A (TSA) is included as a control inhibitor to compare the efficacy of the test inhibitors.

Summary: Detection method- Fluorescence (Em/Ex = 380/500 nm)
Applications- Suitable for high throughput screening of HDAC3 inhibitors

NCBI Summary for HDAC3
Histones play a critical role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression, and developmental events. Histone acetylation/deacetylation alters chromosome structure and affects transcription factor access to DNA. The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the histone deacetylase/acuc/apha family. It has histone deacetylase activity and represses transcription when tethered to a promoter. It may participate in the regulation of transcription through its binding with the zinc-finger transcription factor YY1. This protein can also down-regulate p53 function and thus modulate cell growth and apoptosis. This gene is regarded as a potential tumor suppressor gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for HDAC3
HDAC3: Responsible for the deacetylation of lysine residues on the N-terminal part of the core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4), and some other non-histone substrates. Histone deacetylation gives a tag for epigenetic repression and plays an important role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression and developmental events. Histone deacetylases act via the formation of large multiprotein complexes. Probably participates in the regulation of transcription through its binding to the zinc-finger transcription factor YY1; increases YY1 repression activity. Required to repress transcription of the POU1F1 transcription factor. Acts as a molecular chaperone for shuttling phosphorylated NR2C1 to PML bodies for sumoylation. Interacts with HDAC7 and HDAC9. Forms a heterologous complex at least with YY1. Interacts with DAXX, HDAC10 and DACH1. Found in a complex with NCOR1 and NCOR2. Component of the N-Cor repressor complex, at least composed of NCOR1, NCOR2, HDAC3, TBL1X, TBL1R, CORO2A and GPS2. Interacts with BCOR, MJD2A/JHDM3A, NRIP1, PRDM6 and SRY. Interacts with BTBD14B. Interacts with GLIS2. Interacts (via the DNA-binding domain) with NR2C1; the interaction recruits phosphorylated NR2C1 to PML bodies for sumoylation. Component of the Notch corepressor complex. Interacts with CBFA2T3 and NKAP. Interacts with APEX1; the interaction is not dependent on the acetylated status of APEX1. Interacts with and deacetylates MAPK14. Interacts with ZMYND15. Widely expressed. Belongs to the histone deacetylase family. HD type 1 subfamily. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
