  • Batch-specific Validation Data


    Figure 1. ChIP results obtained with the Diagenode antibody directed against H3K4me1
    ChIP assays were performed using human osteosarcoma (U2OS) cells, the Diagenode antibody against H3K4me1 (cat. No. CS-037-100) 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. A titration of the antibody consisting of 2, 5, 10 or 15 μl per ChIP experiment was analysed. IgG (5 μg/IP) was used as negative IP control. Quantitative PCR was performed with primers for the promoter of the ALDOA gene and for the coding region of the myogenic differentiation gene (MYOD), a gene that is inactive at normal conditions. 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. Determination of the titer
    To determine the titer, an ELISA was performed using a serial dilution of the Diagenode antibody directed against H3K4me1 (cat. No. CS-037-100). 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 1:3,800.

    Dot Blot

    Figure 3. Cross reactivity test using the Diagenode antibody directed against H3K4me1
    A Dot Blot analysis was performed to test the cross reactivity of the Diagenode antibody against H3K4me1 (cat. No. CS-037-100) with peptides containing other modifications or unmodified sequences of histone H3. Other histone modifications include di- and trimethylation of the same lysine and mono-, di- and trimethylation of lysine 9, 27 and 36 and 79. One hundred to 0.2 pmol of the peptides 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.

    Western blot

    Figure 4. Western blot analysis using the Diagenode antibody directed against H3K4me1
    Histone extracts of HeLa cells (15 μg) were analysed by Western blot using the Diagenode antibody against H3K4me1 (cat. No. CS-037-100) diluted 1:750 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.

    Principles of nucleation of H3K27 methylation during embryonic development.
    van Heeringen SJ, Akkers RC, van Kruijsbergen I, Arif MA, Hanssen LL, Sharifi N, Veenstra GJ
    During embryonic development, maintenance of cell identity and lineage commitment requires the Polycomb-group PRC2 complex, which catalyzes histone H3 lysine 27 trimethylation (H3K27me3). However, the developmental origins of this regulation are unknown. Here we show that H3K27me3 enrichment increases from blastula ...

    The developmental epigenomics toolbox: ChIP-seq and MethylCap-seq profiling of early zebrafish embryos.
    Bogdanović O, Fernández-Miñán A, Tena JJ, de la Calle-Mustienes E, Gómez-Skarmeta JL
    Genome-wide profiling of DNA methylation and histone modifications answered many questions as to how the genes are regulated on a global scale and what their epigenetic makeup is. Yet, little is known about the function of these marks during early vertebrate embryogenesis. Here we provide detailed protocols for ChIP...

    The generation of distinctive cell types that form different tissues and organs requires precise, temporal and spatial control of gene expression. This depends on specific cis-regulatory elements distributed in the non-coding DNA surrounding their target genes. Studies performed on mammalian embryonic stem cells and...
