Histone methylation is involved in the regulation of many cellular processes. In the past 2 years, several histone demethylases including BHC110/LSD1 have been characterized. BHC110, the first known histone lysine demethylase, removes methyl groups from methylated histone H3 lysine 4 and has been found in many multi-protein complexes. Using one-step affinity purification, we have isolated enzymatically active BHC110-containing complexes. Here, we detail the methods used for the isolation and characterization of these histone demethylase complexes from a human stable cell line.
