The Zymo-Spin™ ChIP Kit from Zymo Research provides a streamlined ChIP procedure for investigating protein-DNA interactions that have been “fixed” in their natural state and can be used to effectively identify binding sites for transcription factors, co-factors, and other DNA regulatory proteins.
- Unique workflow features a micro-elution (≥6 µl) spin column for purification of ChIP DNA.
- High quality ChIP DNA is ideal for ChIP-qPCR, ChIP-Seq, and other molecular applications.
Briefly, this ChIP protocol involves covalent cross-linking of protein-DNA complexes with formaldehyde followed by cell lysis and chromatin shearing. A ChIP-grade antibody (user supplied) is used with Protein A magnetic beads to immunoprecipitate the protein-DNA complexes of interest. Following reverse crosslinking, RNase A and Proteinase K treatments, the DNA is eluted in a minimal volume of buffer using a unique micro-elution spin column, eliminating the need for messy precipitations. The protocol has been optimized for efficient crosslinking, shearing, and immunoprecipitation regardless of the mammalian cell type. Additionally, eluted ChIP DNA is ideal for end point PCR, quantitative PCR, ChIP-Seq library preparation, and Next-Gen sequencing-based applications.View Zymo-Spin™ ChIP Kit on Zymo Research’s website
