  • Function

    ATP-dependent chromatin-remodeling factor which functions as substrate recognition component of the transcription regulatory histone acetylation (HAT) complex SAGA. Regulates polymerase II transcription. Also required for efficient transcription by RNA polymerase I, and more specifically the polymerase I transcription termination step. Regulates negatively DNA replication. Not only involved in transcription-related chromatin-remodeling, but also required to maintain a specific chromatin configuration across the genome. Is also associated with histone deacetylase (HDAC) activity (By similarity). Required for the bridging of SNF2, the FACT complex, the PAF complex as well as the U2 snRNP complex to H3K4me3. Functions to modulate the efficiency of pre-mRNA splicing in part through physical bridging of spliceosomal components to H3K4me3. Required for maintaining open chromatin and pluripotency in embryonic stem cells.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the SNF2/RAD54 helicase family.
    Contains 2 chromo domains.
    Contains 1 helicase ATP-binding domain.
    Contains 1 helicase C-terminal domain.
  • Domain

    The 2 chromodomains are involved in the binding to the histone H3 methyllysine at position 4 (H3K4me3).
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Is released into the cytoplasm when cells enter mitosis and is reincorporated into chromatin during telophase-cytokinesis.

    Lane 1 : HeLa (human epithelial cell line from cervix adenocarcinoma) whole cell lysate at 50 µg
    Lane 2 : HeLa whole cell lysate at 15 µg
    Lane 3 : HeLa whole cell lysate at 5 µg

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Exposure time: 3 seconds
  • Chd1 was immunoprecipitated from HeLa (human epithelial cell line from cervix adenocarcinoma) whole cell lysate (1 mg for IP, 20% of IP loaded) with ab242098 at 3 µg/mg lysate. Western blot was performed from the immunoprecipitate using ab242098 at 1 µg/ml.

    Lane 1: ab242098 IP in HeLa whole cell lysate.
    Lane 2: Control IgG IP in HeLa whole cell lysate.

    Detection: Chemiluminescence with exposure time of 10 seconds.

  • ab242098 (10 μg) was used to immunoprecipitate chromatin from K562 cells according to the protocol of Ren et al (Genes Dev. 2002 16: 245-256).

    (A) Immunoprecipitated DNA and reference DNA were amplified via ligation-mediated PCR and the products labeled with fluorescent dUTPs. The labeled ChIP and reference DNA were pooled, hybridized to a DNA microarray, and analyzed. Data points below the +3 SD curve (red line) represent significantly enriched binding sites.

    (B) As a control, a similar experiment was performed using normal rabbit IgG. Compared to the anti-Chd1 ChIP, normal rabbit IgG showed little enrichment.
