    BRD4 Antibody ChIP Grade

    Figure 1. ChIP results obtained with the Diagenode antibody directed against BRD4
    ChIP was performed with the Diagenode antibody against BRD4 (Cat. No. C15410337) on sheared chromatin from 4,000,000 K562 cells. An antibody titration consisting of 1, 2, 5 and 10 µg per ChIP experiment was analysed. IgG (2 µg/IP) was used as negative IP control. QPCR was performed with primers specific for the EIF4A2 and ACTB promoters, used as positive controls, and for the MYOD1 gene and Sat2 satellite repeat, used as negative controls. Figure 1 shows the recovery, expressed as a % of input (the relative amount of immunoprecipitated DNA compared to input DNA after qPCR analysis).

    Figure 2. ChIP-seq results obtained with the Diagenode antibody directed against BRD4
    ChIP was performed with 2 µg of the Diagenode antibody against BRD4 (cat. No. C15410337) on sheared chromatin from 4,000,000 K562 cells using the “iDeal ChIP-seq” kit as described above. The IP'd DNA was subsequently analysed on an Illumina HiSeq 2000. Library preparation, cluster generation and sequencing were performed according to the manufacturer's instructions. The 50 bp tags were aligned to the human genome using the BWA algorithm. Figure 2 shows the signal distribution along the complete sequence and a 300 kb region of the human X-chromosome (figures 2A and B), and in two genomic rtegions surrounding the ACTB and EIF4A2 positive control genes (figure 2C and D).

    BRD4 Antibody ELISA Validation

    Figure 3. Determination of the antibody titer
    To determine the titer of the antibody, an ELISA was performed using a serial dilution of the Diagenode antibody directed against BRD4 (Cat. No. C15410337). The plates were coated with the peptides used for immunization of the rabbit. By plotting the absorbance against the antibody dilution (Figure 2), the titer of the antibody was estimated to be 1:290,000.

    BRD4 Antibody validated in Western Blot

    Figure 4. Western blot analysis using the Diagenode antibody directed against BRD4
    Whole cell extracts (25 µg) from HeLa cells were analysed by Western blot using the Diagenode antibody against BRD4 (Cat. No. C15410337) diluted 1:1,000 in TBS-Tween containing 5% skimmed milk. The position of the protein of interest is indicated on the right; the marker (in kDa) is shown on the left.

  • Target Description

    BRD4 (UniProt/Swiss-Prot entry O60885) is a chromatin reader protein that binds acetylated histones. It remains associated with acetylated chromatin throughout the entire cell cycle and provides epigenetic memory for gene transcription by preserving an acetylated chromatin status. As such, it plays a key role in the transmission of epigenetic memory across cell divisions. BRD4 promotes phosphorylation of Ser-2 of the C-terminal domain (CTD) of RNA polymerase II and plays a key role in regulating the transcription of signal-inducible genes. It has been implicated in a translocation of chromosome 19 which causes an upper respiratory tract carcinoma.
