    H3R17me2(asym) Antibody ChIP Grade

    Figure 1. ChIP results obtained with the Diagenode antibody directed against H3R17me2(asym)
    ChIP assays were performed using human osteosarcoma (U2OS) cells, the Diagenode antibody against H3R17me2(asym) (cat. No. CS-092-100) and optimized PCR primer sets for qPCR. Chromatin was sheared with the Diagenode “Shearing ChIP” kit (cat. No. kch-redmod-100). ChIP was performed with the “OneDay ChIP” kit (cat. No. kch-oneDIP-060), using sheared chromatin from 1.6 million cells per ChIP reaction. A titration of the antibody consisting of 2, 5, 10 and 15 μl per ChIP experiment was analysed. IgG (5 μg/IP) was used as negative IP control. Figure 1 shows the recovery, expressed as a % of input (the relative amount of immunoprecipitated DNA compared to input DNA after qPCR analysis). Figure 1A: QPCR performed with primers for the GAPDH promoter (cat. No. pp-1001-050) and for exon 2 of the myoglobin gene (cat. No. pp-1006-050). Figure 1B: QPCR performed with primers for the promoter of the active ALDOA gene and for the coding region of the inactive MYOD gene..

    H3R17me2(asym) Antibody ELISA validation

    Figure 2. Determination of the titer
    To determine the titer, an ELISA was performed using a serial dilution of the Diagenode antibody directed against H3R17me2(asym) (cat. No. CS-092-100). The antigen used was a peptide containing the histone modification of interest. By plotting the absorbance against the antibody dilution (Figure 2), the titer of the antibody was estimated to be 1:40,000.

    H3R17me2(asym) Antibody validated in Dot Blot

    Figure 3. Cross reactivity test using the Diagenode antibody directed against H3R17me2(asym)
    A Dot Blot analysis was performed to test the cross reactivity of the Diagenode antibody against H3R17me2(asym) (cat. No. CS-092-100) with peptides containing other modifications of histone H3 and H4 and unmodified sequences from histone H3. One hundred to 0.2 pmol of the peptide containing the respective histone modification were spotted on a membrane. The antibody was used at a dilution of 1:20,000. Figure 3 shows a high specificity of the antibody for the modification of interest.

    H3R17me2(asym) Antibody validated in Western Blot

    Figure 4. Western blot analysis using the Diagenode antibody directed against H3R17me2(asym)
    Histone extracts of HeLa cells (15 μg) were analysed by Western blot using the Diagenode antibody against H3R17me2(asym) (cat. No. CS-092-100) diluted 1:250 in TBS-Tween containing 5% skimmed milk. The position of the protein of interest is indicated on the left; the marker (in kDa) is shown on the right.

  • Target Description

    Histones are the main constituents of the protein part of chromosomes of eukaryotic cells. They are rich in the amino acids arginine and lysine and have been greatly conserved during evolution. Histones pack the DNA into tight masses of chromatin. Two core histones of each class H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 assemble and are wrapped by 146 base pairs of DNA to form one octameric nucleosome. Histone tails undergo numerous post-translational modifications, which either directly or indirectly alter chromatin structure to facilitate transcriptional activation or repression or other nuclear processes. In addition to the genetic code, combinations of the different histone modifications reveal the so-called “histone code”. Histone methylation and demethylation is dynamically regulated by respectively histone methyl transferases and histone demethylases.

    Assaying epigenome functions of PRMTs and their substrates.
    Rakow S, Pullamsetti SS, Bauer UM, Bouchard C
    Among the widespread and increasing number of identified post-translational modifications (PTMs), arginine methylation is catalyzed by the protein arginine methyltransferases (PRMTs) and regulates fundamental processes in cells, such as gene regulation, RNA processing, translation and signal transduction. As epigene...
