  • Product overview

    Methylation of histone H3 at lysine 4 (H3 (methyl K4)) plays an important role in epigenetic regulation of genes. It has been well demonstrated that H3 (methyl-K4) leads to chromatin gene activation in many organisms. H3 (di-methyl K4) may serve as global epigenertic mark in euchromatin. Thus, identification of genes activated through H3 (methyl-K4) is of particular significance for understanding and analyzing biological processes under normal and pathological conditions.

    EpiSeeker ChIP Kit - Histone H3 (methyl K4) (ab117143) enables the user to investigate in vivo H3 (methyl K4)-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.

    ab117143 uses an antibody that detects Histone H3 di-methylated on K4.

    If you are using tissue as starting sample material, we recommend the use of EpiSeeker ChIP Kit - Histone H3 (methyl K4) - Tissue (ab117145)

    EpiSeeker ChIP Kit - Histone H3 (methyl K4) 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 ECM4) and 2mg of ab117143 (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.
