Diagenode’s iDeal ChIP-seq Kit for Transcription Factors is a highly specialized solution for robust Transcription Factor ChIP-seq results. Unlike competing solutions, our kit utilizes a highly optimized protocol and is backed by validation with a broad number and range of transcription factors. The kit provides high yields with excellent specificity and sensitivity.


I have been doing ChIPs for a very long time and have tried many kits from different sources like Active Motif, Millipore/Upstate, and homemade reagents. The reproducibility and binding efficacy were never optimal for these until a colleague recommended the iDeal ChIP-seq Kit for Transcription Factors from Diagenode. I have done more than one hundred samples of ChIPs and ChIP-seq using this kit. The results are very consistent and the binding efficacy is higher than with all the other methods. I would definitely recommend this ChIP kit from Diagenode to anyone who is trying to do ChIP or ChIP-seq.

    Chromatin immunoprecipitation

    Diagenode peaks - overlapping peaks with encode dataset

    Figure 1. (A) Chromatin Immunoprecipitation has been performed using chromatin from HeLa cells, the iDeal ChIP-seq kit for Transcription Factors and the Diagenode ChIP-seq-grade CTCF antibody. 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. This figure shows the peak distribution in a region surrounding the GAPDH positive control gene. (B) The ChIP-seq dataset from this experiment has been compared with a reference dataset from the Broad Institute. We observed a perfect match between the top 40% of Diagenode peaks and the reference dataset. Based on the NIH Encode project criterion, ChIP-seq results are considered reproducible between an original and reproduced dataset if the top 40% of peaks have at least an 80% overlap ratio with the compared dataset.

    Figure 2. Chromatin Immunoprecipitation has been performed using chromatin from HeLa cells, the iDeal ChIP-seq kit for Transcription Factors and the Diagenode ChIP-seq-grade HDAC1 (A), LSD1 (B) and p53 antibody (C). The IP'd DNA was subsequently analysed on an Illumina® Genome Analyzer. Library preparation, cluster generation and sequencing were performed according to the manufacturer's instructions. This figure shows the peak distribution in regions of chromosome 3 (A), chromosome 12 (B) and chromosome 6 (C) respectively.

    The new Bioruptor® Pico machine has reduced the amount of time spent sonicating Chromatin by a massive amount. Some protocols require quite harsh fixing conditions which meant fragmenting DNA on the old machine was taking many rounds and several times. With the new Bioruptor® Pico machine these sonications were taking just one round of 10 cycles thereby reducing the fragmentation time substantially. Following sonication, I have used the new IDeal ChIP-seq kit. This is a nice straight forward kit that if followed with an appropriate chip validated antibody gave amazing chip-seq results that worked time and again with several different transcription factors. I would recommend both kits for good, consistant chromatin work.

    There are so many ChIP-related products on the market, but I feel so lucky that I have been using the ones from Diagenode since I started my CHIP-seq project. I have used their iDeal CHIP-seq Kit for Transcription Factors and MicroPlex Library Prep Kit v2. Both of them are fantastic and very reproducible. With the very-well written protocols, you will just be home and dry. Particularly, I want to thank the technical support, who is very patient, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend my colleagues to use the CHIP products from Diagenode.

    I have been using Diagenode products to perform ChIP-seq during the last three years and I am very satisfied, with the Bioruptor, the kits and the antibodies. I have used the iDeal ChIP-seq kit for Histones and the iDeal ChIP-seq kit for Transcription Factors with very successful and reproducible results. Once I tried to ChIP histones with a home-made protocol and it worked much worse in comparison with Diagenode kits. In other occasion, I tried a non-Diagenode antibody for a transcription factor and I also got much poor results, however with the Diagenode antibody I always got very nice results. I strongly recommend the use of Diagenode products.

    Glucocorticoid receptor represses brain-derived neurotrophic factor expression in neuron-like cells
    Chen H. et al.
    Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is involved in many functions such as neuronal growth, survival, synaptic plasticity and memorization. Altered expression levels are associated with many pathological situations such as depression, epilepsy, Alzheimer's, Huntington's and Parkinson's diseases. Glucocorticoid r...

    First landscape of binding to chromosomes for a domesticated mariner transposase in the human genome: diversity of genomic targets of SETMAR isoforms in two colorectal cell lines
    Antoine-Lorquin A. et al.
    Setmar is a 3-exons gene coding a SET domain fused to a Hsmar1 transposase. Its different transcripts theoretically encode 8 isoforms with SET moieties differently spliced. In vitro, the largest isoform binds specifically to Hsmar1 DNA ends and with no specificity to DNA when it is associated with hPso4. In colon ce...

    Suppression of RUNX1/ETO oncogenic activity by a small molecule inhibitor of tetramerization
    Schanda J. et al.
    RUNX1/ETO, the product of the t(8;21) chromosomal translocation, is required for the onset and maintenance of one of the most common forms of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). RUNX1/ETO has a modular structure and, besides the DN A-binding domain (Runt), contains four evolutionary conserved functional domains named nerv...

    Foxo3 Transcription Factor Drives Pathogenic T Helper 1 Differentiation by Inducing the Expression of Eomes
    Stienne C. et al.
    The transcription factor Foxo3 plays a crucial role in myeloid cell function but its role in lymphoid cells remains poorly defined. Here, we have shown that Foxo3 expression was increased after T cell receptor engagement and played a specific role in the polarization of CD4+ T cells toward pathogenic T hel...

    Although Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) infection is widely distributed, certain EBV-driven malignancies are geographically restricted. EBV-associated Burkitt’s lymphoma (eBL) is endemic in children living in sub-Saharan Africa. This population is heavily exposed to food contaminated with the mycotoxin aflatox...
