Figure 1. ChIP results obtained with the Diagenode antibody directed against H4K5,8,12,16ac
ChIP assays were performed using human HeLa cells, the Diagenode antibody against H4K5,8,12,16ac (Cat. No. C15410024) and optimized PCR primer sets for qPCR. ChIP was performed with the “iDeal ChIP- seq” kit (Cat. No. AB-001-0024) on sheared chromatin from 1 million cells. A titration of the antibody 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 for promoter of the active gene EIF4A2 and for a region 1 kb upstream of the GAPDH gene, used as positive controls, and for the inactive MYOD1 gene and the Sat2 satellite repeat region 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).
