  • Product overview

    Acetylation of histones such histone H3 has been involved in the regulation of chromatin structure and the recruitment of transcription factors to gene promoters. HATs (histone acetyltransferases) and HDACs (histone deacetylases) play a critical role in controlling histone H3 acetylation. Histone acetylation is tightly involved in cell cycle regulation, cell proliferation and apoptosis. An imbalance in the equilibrium of histone acetylation has been associated with tumorigenesis and cancer progression.

    EpiSeeker ChIP Kit - Histone H3 (acetyl) (ab117148) enables the user to investigate in vivo H3 (acetyl)-DNA interactions within 5 hours. The kit is suitable for combining the specificity of immunoprecipitation with qualitative and quantitative PCR, MS-PCR, DNA sequencing, and southern blot, as well as DNA microarray.

    If you are using tissue as your starting sample material, we recommend the use of EpiSeeker ChIP Kit - Histone H3 (acetyl) - Tissue (ab117150)

    EpiSeeker ChIP Kit - Histone H3 (acetyl) images

    • Chromatin was prepared from HeLa cells according to the EpiSeeker ChIP Kit protocol. Cells were fixed with formaldehyde for 10 minutes. The ChIP was performed with 100ml of chromatin (diluted at a 1:1 ratio with ECA4) and 2mg of ab117148 (blue). 2µg of normal Mouse IgG antibody was added as the negative control (yellow). The immunoprecipitated DNA was quantified by real time PCR (Taqman approach). Primers and probes are located in the first kb of the transcribed region.

    The lab sent me the following explanation:

    The kit is designed for 24 reactions (not 24 samples). Thus, 25 ul of proteinase K should be sufficient for 24 reactionsas only 1 ul of proteinase K is require...

    I can understand your reservation in wanting to try the experiment again. I don't think leaving the DNA sample to stand with the column for a minute will in itself improve the results much but I think that th...
