  • Product overview

    Protein-DNA interactions play a critical role for cellular functions such as signal transduction, gene transcription and epigenetic silencing. In plants, interactions between the DNA-binding proteins and cognate promoter sequences are primary determinants in establishing spatial and temporal expression patterns of gene that affect homeostasis, development, and adaptation.

    Abcam's ChIP Kit - Plants (ab117137) offers an advantageous tool for identifying direct genome-wide associations between specific regulatory proteins and their target genes in plant cells within 6 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.

    This kit is designed for 24 or 48 ChIP reactions, not for 24 or 48 samples. The standard protocol of the kit allows for performing 8 reactions with one sample. For testing more samples, the amount of each sample should be reduced. The amount of each reagent used for chromatin preparation should be also proportionally reduced.

Customer reviews and Q&As

I am happy to confirm that this kit is compatible with chromatin sheared using MNase (generally at the concentration of 5 Unit/ml for 5-10 min).

However, based on our testing, MNase digestion should be well monitored and controlled ...

1. Yes, the Covaris sonicator is fully comatible with this kit.
2. The Desi-Vac desiccator (vacuum pump container, YO-06525-02) from Cole -Parmer would be fine.

Thank you for contacting us. The ChIP kit ab117137 should be suitable for testing with Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for contacting us.

In general the chromatin extracts at the step of sonication should be clear. However in some of case, the green tinge may be seen to the chromatin extracts if the starting materials are with green color (ex: green<...

Thank you for your enquiry.

Regarding question 1:
You can reduce the volumes(and mass of plant tissue) accordingly to test moreplant samplesusing the samereagents provided with the kit. For example you can reduce the plant tissue by 10xa...

Thank you very much for your reply.

The CTD repeat antibody, ab817, is expected to react with most species. We haven't specifically tested it against P. trichocarpa, however as long as the samples contain the CTD repeat I do expect it to reac...
