for Recombinant JMJD2A / KDM4A proteinBackground

KDM4A (lysine (K)-specific demethylase 4A), also known as JMJD2A (Jumonji Domain Containing 2A) is a nuclear protein that functions as a histone demethylase that preferentially demethylates di- and trimethylated lysine 9 (K9me3) and lysine 36 (K36me3) residues of histone H3, converting these trimethylated histone residues to mono- or dimethylated form. JMJD2A / KDM4A has no activity for monomethylated H3K9 and H3K36. KDM4A functions as a transcriptional repressor, participating in transcriptional repression of ASCL2 and E2F-responsive promoters via the recruitment of histone deacetylases and NCOR1, respectively. An additional KDM4A isoform, KDM4A Isoform 2, that lacks the N-terminal demethylase domain is crucial for muscle differentiation in promoting transcriptional activation of the MyoG gene by directing the removal of repressive chromatin marks at its promoter.

JMJD2A / KDM4A activity assay

JMJD2A / KDM4A activity assay.
3.3 µM H3K9me3 peptide was incubated with JMJD2A / KDM4A in reaction buffer for 1 hour at room temperature. JMJD2A / KDM4A enzyme was used in a HTRF assay to determine enzyme linearity. Demethylated peptide (H3K9me2) was measured using H3K9me2-specific antibody.

JMJD2A / KDM4A activity assay.
3.3 µM H3K9me3 peptide was incubated with 60 nM JMJD2A / KDM4A in reaction buffer for 2 hours at room temperature. The reaction product was detected by MALDI-TOF. Single 3.3 µM H3K9me3 peptide was used as negative control.

for Recombinant JMJD2A / KDM4A proteinStorage

Recombinant proteins in solution are temperature sensitive and must be stored at -80°C to prevent degradation. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles and keep on ice when not in storage.
