Epigenetic ELISA Kits from Abnova

The field of epigenetic screening has become one of the most exciting areas of biological research and is increasingly becoming the focus of drug developments. Epigenetic mechanisms are inheritable factors that regulate genetic expression without changing the DNA sequence.

Factors such as post translational modifications on the N-terminal tails of histones or methylation on the cytosine of DNA can induce changes to chromatin structure, thereby regulating DNA expression. Abnormalities in this process play a critical role in many important human diseases, especially in cancer and metabolic diseases. Abnova provide robust and ready-to-use assay kits with specific antibodies and innovative detection methods that can shorten assay times.
