Histone acetyltransferases (HATs) catalyze the acetylation of histone proteins by transferring an acetyl group from cofactor acetyl-CoA, and consequently regulate gene expression. The regulation is critical for cellular processes such as cell differentiation and proliferation. Our Colorimetric Histone Acetyltransferase (HAT) Activity Assay Kit offers rapid and sensitive detection of HAT activity or HAT inhibition in mammalian cells/tissue samples. Briefly, acetylation of a peptide substrate by HATs releases the free form of CoA, which can serve as a coenzyme of a NADH generating enzyme to produce NADH.
