ChIP kit ab500 provides a protocol and reagents for running ChIP assays including:
- cell lysis and chromatin extraction
- chromatin shearing and DNA fragment length analysis
- immunoprecipitation and DNA purification
DNA produced using the kit can be analyzed using qPCR.
The kit has been validated for ChIP assays with mammalian samples.
This kit uses Protein A sepharose beads for antibody pulldown. See table below for Protein A and Protein G binding affinities with antibodies from commonly used species. For other species of antibody, consult the table in the protocol booklet.
