    CBX2 Antibody ChIP Grade

    Figure 1. ChIP results obtained with the Diagenode antibody directed against CBX2
    ChIP assays were performed using K562 cells, the Diagenode antibody against CBX2 (Cat. No. C15410339) and optimized PCR primer sets for qPCR. ChIP was performed with the “iDeal ChIP-seq” kit (cat. No. C01010055), using sheared chromatin from 4 million cells. A titration consisting of 1, 2 and 5 μg of antibody per ChIP experiment was analyzed. IgG (2 μg/IP) was used as a negative IP control. Quantitative PCR was performed with primers for the ARNTL2 gene, used as positive control, and for the promoter of the GAPDH gene, used as negative control. Figure 1 shows the recovery, expressed as a % of input (the relative amount of immunoprecipitated DNA compared to input DNA after qPCR analysis).

    CBX2 Antibody validated in ChIP-seq

    Figure 2. ChIP-seq results obtained with the Diagenode antibody directed against CBX2
    ChIP was performed on sheared chromatin from 4 million K562 cells using 1 μg of the Diagenode antibody against CBX2 (Cat. No. C15410339) as described above. The IP’d DNA was subsequently analysed on an Illumina HiSeq. 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 enrichment along the complete sequence and a 1.5 Mb region of the human chromosome 1 (fig 2A and B), and in two genomic regions surrounding the ARNTL2 positive control gene and the HOXA9 cluster (fig 2C and D).

    CBX2 Antibody validated in Western Blot

    Figure 3. Western blot analysis using the Diagenode antibody directed against CBX2
    Whole cell extracts from HeLa cells were analysed by Western blot using the Diagenode antibody against CBX2 (Cat. No. C15410339) 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.

    CBX2 Antibody validated in Immunoprecipitation

    Figure 4. Immunoprecipitation using the Diagenode antibody directed against CBX2
    Immunoprecipitation was performed on whole cell extracts from 293T cells using 6 μg of the Diagenode antibody against CBX2 (Cat. No. C15410339, lane 1). An equal amount of rabbit IgG was used as a negative control (lane 2). The immunoprecipitated CBX2 protein was detected by western blot with the CBX2 antibody diluted 1:1,000.

  • Target Description

    CBX2 (UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot entry Q14781) is a component of the PRC1-like polycomb multiprotein complex, which is required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes throughout development via chromatin remodeling and modification of histones. The PRC1 complex mediates monoubiquitination of histone H2A on lysine 119, introducing heritably changed expression. CBX2 is involved in sexual development. Mutations in CBX2 are associated with gonadal dysgenesis in humans.
