  • Product overview

    Acetylation of histones such histone H4 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 H4 acetylation. Histone acetylation is tightly involved in cell cycle regulation, cell proliferation and apoptosis. Reversible acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 is believed to correlate with potential transcriptionally activity of eukaryotic chromatin domains.

    EpiSeeker ChIP Kit - Histone H4 (acetyl) (ab117149) enables the user to investigate in vivo H4 (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 starting material, we recommend the use of EpiSeeker ChIP Kit - Histone H4 (acetyl) - Tissue (ab117151)

    EpiSeeker ChIP Kit - Histone H4 (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 ab117149 (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.
