Abcam’s High-Sensitivity ChIP Kit (ab185913) is a complete set of optimized reagents to carry out a successful chromatin immunoprecipitation procedure in a high throughput format starting from mammalian cells or tissues. The highly specific and sensitive kit is suitable for selective enrichment of a chromatin fraction containing specific DNA sequences using various mammalian cell/tissues. The optimized protocol and kit components reduce non-specific background ChIP levels to allow capture of low abundance protein/transcription factors and increased specific enrichment of target protein/DNA complexes. The target protein bound DNA prepared with the High-Sensitivity ChIP Kit can be used for various downstream applications including PCR (ChIP-PCR), microarrays (ChIP-on-chip), and sequencing (ChIP-seq).
Starting materials can include various tissue or cell samples such as cells from flask or plate cultured cells, fresh and frozen tissues, etc. In general, the amount of cells and tissues for each reaction can be 2 x 103 to 1 x 106 and 0.5 mg to 50 mg, respectively. For optimal preparation, the input amount should be 1 to 2 x 105 cells or 10 to 20 mg tissues since the enrichment of target proteins to genome loci may vary. For the target proteins that are low abundance transcription factors, the input amount should be 5 to 6 x 105 cells or 50 to 60 mg tissues.View High-Sensitivity ChIP Kit on Abcam’s website
