Chromatin EasyShear Kit - Low SDS

4 chrom. prep./ 24 rxns

Previous name of the kit: Chromatin shearing optimization kitLow SDS (iDeal Kit for TFs)

A high quality chromatin preparation is very complex and requires a lot of optimization. Chromatin EasyShear Kit – Low SDS is an optimized solution for efficient chromatin preparation prior to ChIP. The protocol, buffers composition, SDS concentration (0.2%) is optimized for the preparation of chromatin prior to ChIP on transcription factors and other non-histone proteins. The kit has been validated with the Bioruptor ultrasonicator for efficient chromatin shearing, leading to chromatin fragments suitable for ChIP with the preserved epitopes. The kit is validated for cells, tissues and FFPE samples.

    Figure 1. Optimal chromatin shearing profile
    HeLa cells were fixed with formaldehyde for 10 min and chromatin was prepared according to Diagenode’s Chromatin EasyShear Kit - Low SDS (Cat. No. C01020013). Samples were sonicated for 5-10-15 cycles of 30” ON/30” OFF as indicated with Bioruptor Pico using 1.5 ml Bioruptor microtubes with caps (Cat. No. C30010016) followed by de-crosslinking and DNA purification. The fragment size was assessed using agarose gel electrophoresis. A 100 bp ladder was loaded as the size standard.

    Figure 2. Chromatin precipitation
    Sheared chromatin (obtained with the Chromatin EasyShear Kit – Low SDS) has been used for immunoprecipitation with CTCF and IgG (negative control) antibodies. Quantitative PCR was performed with positive (H19) and negative (Myoglobine exon 2) control regions. The Figure 2 shows the recovery expressed as % of input (the relative amount of immunoprecipitated DNA compared to input DNA (panel A) and as enrichment fold of positive locus over negative (panel B).
