Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) offers an advantageous tool for studying protein-DNA interactions and can be used to determine whether a specific protein binds to a particular sequence of a gene, such as the target sequence of a transcription factor or to compare the levels of histone methylation associated with a specific gene promoter region between normal and diseased tissues. Identifying the genetic targets of DNA binding proteins and revealing the mechanism of protein-DNA interaction is crucial for understanding cellular processes.
Map genome-wide histone modifications with EpiGentek’s comprehensive chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing (ChIP-Seq) platform. Optimized buffers and protocol allow minimal ChIP background and increased sensitivity and specificity of the ChIP reaction.
