EpiDyne™ Nucleosome Substrates for Chromatin Remodeling Assays
Opening the door for the study of disease-relevant ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes

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 REA Nucleosome Remodeling Substrate consists of a human histone octamer wrapped with a strong nucleosome positioning sequence (Widom 601) shielding a target motif (purple box). The target motif is either a restriction enzyme recognition site or a DAM methylation sequence. Subsequent to the action of an ATP-dependent remodeler (e.g. RSC or another SWI/SNF ATPase), the target site is exposed, whereupon it can either be cut by a restriction enzyme or methylated by DAM. EpiDyne-FRET Nucleosome Remodeling Substrate consists of a Cy5-labeled human histone octamer (red section of octamer) wrapped by 5' Cy3-labeled DNA (217bp; Cy3 = green ball) with a terminal nucleosome positioning sequence. In its starting state, Cy3-Cy5 FRET is at a maximum. The activity of an ATP-dependent remodeler (e.g. RSC) is detected by a reduction in FRET signal as the Cy3-labeled DNA 5' end is moved away from the Cy5-labeled octamer.
