The HsAFM primers and probe can be used to quantify a control locus in chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assays with chromatin prepared from human cells.
AFM (Alpha-albumin) is expressed in liver but inactive in most other cell types. The primers and probe are located in exon 1. In most cell types AFM is enriched with histone modifications associated with silencing (e.g. Histone H3 K27 di methylation, see image with ab24684). Whereas it shows low levels of histone modifications associated with active gene transcription such as Histone H3 K18 acetylation (see image with ab1191).
