Thank you for contacting us.

First, I'd like to point out some resources on our website which may help:


A Beginner's Guide to ChIP - Abcam

As we discussed over the phone, you may want to start with our ChIP kit (ab500)since this has everything you need for the reaction, including the positive control antibody ab1791.


In addition, you'll need the two antibodies you were interested in, and their matching negative controls.

Anti-Histone H3 (tri methyl K4) antibody - ChIP Grade (ab8580)


Rabbit Control IgG - ChIP Grade (ab46540)


Anti-Histone H3 (tri methyl K27) antibody [mAbcam 6002] - ChIP Grade (ab6002)


Mouse IgG3, kappa monoclonal [MG3-35] - Isotype control (ab18394). This one isn't tested in ChIP, but I don't see a reason why it wouldn't work.


You'll also need the housekeeping primers, like GAPDH, ab83588 and ab83589.



That should be enough to get you started, but take a look at the resources mentioned above and let me know if you have any additional questions.

Merci beaucoup pour votre appel de ce matin.

Je suis désolée de devoir vous confirmer que nous devons corriger et informer les clients du produit ab46540, car, grâce à vous, j'ai vérifié et j'ai trouvéquele ab46540 est effectivement réactif contre les immunoglobulines de souris. Nous allons corriger ceci. Merci d'avoir attiré notre attention à ce fait.

Même si vous travaillez avec du tissu humain, je ne préfère pas vous recommander le ab46540. Le ab37415 est aussi un control pour les IgG de lapin et il était aussi testé en ChIP. Je peux donc vous recommander celui- ci. J'ai aussi double vérifié que le ab37415 ne contient effectivement aucune réactivité connue.

J'espère que ces informations vous sont utiles. Je m'excuse pour ces confusions et nous restons à votre disposition pour tout renseignement supplémentaire.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Indeed we do have also polyclonal control fractions of mouse or rat IgGs.

For the mouse IgG, we do have the IgG fraction ab37355 https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=37355 (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=37355).

For the rat IgG, we do have the IgG fraction ab37361 https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=37361 (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=37361).

These two products have been used as controls so far only in ELISA and flow cytometry to our knowledge. As they have however no known specificity, I would expect them to work also in ChIP. If you would like to test them in ChIP, please do let me know, as I might can provide you with a testing offer.

Otherwise, if you are looking for a monoclonal rat or mouse antibody as a control, we do have also monoclonal isotype controls. Voici la liste de nos anticorps isotypes controls: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=catalog_byclass&intClassID=718&strStartChar=A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M

Please do not hesitate to contact us again if you have anyquestion, if wecould help you in the further selection of an antibody or if you are interested in testing the above mentioned antibodies in ChIP.

Thank you for your inquiry.
I can confim that the antibody was affinity-purified against the antigen itself (bound to agarose).
Protein A or G was not used.
I hope this information is helpful. please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions.
