Abstract: Epigenetic regulation is based on specific molecular interactions between epigenetic reader, writer and eraser molecules and chromatin. Binding parameters of these interactions such as binding affinities, stoichiometries and thermodynamics are essential for the understanding of the establishment and maintenance of epigenetic networks. MicroScale Thermophoresis (MST) is a rapid and precise method to characterize epigenetic interactions in solution requiring low sample concentrations. The free choice of buffers during a MST measurement allows an analysis of molecular interactions in complex buffer systems, in serum and even in crude extracts. This robust and flexible technology offers the detection of affinities in a dynamic range from pM to mM. Integrated quality controls ensure high quality data. We present the characterization of molecular interactions between epigenetic proteins and their target from nucleotides to nucleosomes. Our optimized protocols assure highly sensitive cost- and time-efficient performance.Summary: Epigenetic regulation is based on specific molecular interactions between epigenetic reader, writer and eraser molecules and chromatin.
