All ChIPAb+ antibodies are individually validated for chromatin precipitation, every lot, every time. Each ChIPAb+ antibody set includes control primers (tested every lot by qPCR) to biologically validate your IP results in a locus-specific context. The qPCR protocol and primer sequences are provided, allowing researchers to validate ChIP protocols when using our antibody in their chromatin context. Each set also includes a negative control antibody to ensure specificity of the ChIP reaction.
The ChIPAb+ Monomethyl-Histone H3 (Lys9) set includes the Anti-monomethyl-Histone H3 (Lys9) antibody, a negative control antibody (purified Mouse IgG), and qPCR primers in the GAPDH coding region, amplifying a 213 base pair PCR product. The monomethyl-histone H3 (Lys9) and negative control antibodies are supplied in a scalable "per ChIP" reaction size and can be used to functionally validate the precipitation of monomethyl-histone H3 (Lys9) associated chromatin.
The immunogen sequence is identical in a wide range of animal and plant species.
Recognizes histone H3, Mr 17 kDa, monomethylated at Lys9.
Epitope: a.a. 1-18
The monomethyl-histone H3 (Lys9) purified antibody is made against a synthetic peptide (monomethylated at Lys9) corresponding to amino acids 1-18 of Histone H3.
Sonicated chromatin prepared from HeLa cells (1 X 106 cell equivalents per IP) was subjected to chromatin immunoprecipitation using 2 µg of either a normal mouse IgG or Anti-monomethyl-Histone H3 (Lys9) antibody and the Magna ChIP G (Cat. #17-611) Kit. Successful immunoprecipitation of monomethyl-histone H3 (Lys9) associated DNA fragments was verified by qPCR using GAPDH Coding region primers versus Control Primers directed against the GAPDH promoter region (Please see figures). Data is presented as percent input of each IP sample relative to input chromatin for each amplicon and ChIP sample as indicated.
Please refer to the EZ-Magna G ChIP (Cat. #17-408) or EZ-ChIP (Cat. #17-371) protocol for experimental details.
Western Blot Analysis:
Representative data of previous lot. HeLa acid extract (Lane 1) was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to PVDF membrane and probed with Anti-monomethyl Histone H3 (Lys9) (0.5 μg/mL).
Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-mouse secondary antibody conjugated to HRP (Cat. #AP124P) and a chemiluminescence detection system (Please see figures).
This ChIPAb+ Validated Antibody & Primer Set conveniently includes the antibody, matched IgG negative control antibody & set control PCR primers that detect a known positive locus.
