EpiDyne Chromatin Remodeling Substrates

Recombinant Nucleosomes as Substrates for Chromatin Remodeling Assays

HTS-compatible nucleosome remodeling assays for drug discovery research

Study ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling enzymes using EpiDyne® substrates:

  • Inhibitor screening and development
  • Structure-Activity relationship assays
  • Biochemical profiling of ATPase family proteins

Chromatin remodeling regulates DNA access on chromatin and thus impacts gene expression and genome repair. Many ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling enzymes are associated with human disease but are challenging targets to study biochemically due to the requirement for nucleosome-based substrates. EpiCypher has addressed this need by developing EpiDyne, a family of recombinant nucleosome substrates to monitor chromatin remodeling activity in vitro.

EpiDyne substrates are available for three assay readouts

EpiDyne-based assays can be used to target SWI/SNF family ATPase complexes (e.g. SMARCA2 or SMARCA4), which are highly associated with numerous types of cancer, when mutated or disregulated.
