HDAC6 NanoBRET Intracellular HDAC Assay

HDAC6 NanoBRET Target Engagement Intracellular HDAC Assay, competitive binding assay format

Target Overview



HGNC Symbol




Cell Line

HEK293 human epithelial cell line from ATCC

Assay Properties

Assay Format

384-well plate format using Promega’s NanoBRET TE Intracellular HDAC Assay

Assay Protocol

HEK293 cells transiently expressing NanoLuc-HDAC6 Fusion Vector were seeded into the wells of 384-well plates. The cells were pre-treated with the NanoBRET intracellular Target Engagement HDAC Tracer and then treated with reference compound SAHA for 1 hour. The BRET signal was measured on an Envision 2104 Multilabel Reader. IC50 value was calculated and IC50 curve was plotted using the GraphPad Prism program based on a sigmoidal dose response equation.
