New Guide to Improving Your ChIP Assay Results
Porvair Sciences' has produced an informative new guide entitled ‘Top 10 tips for positive ChIP results’.
The success of a Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assay is highly dependent on the quality of chromatin prepared. Written by scientists with many years experience of ChIP, the new 8-page document provides an informative 10-point illustrated guide to help you improve your ChIP assay results. ChIP is a commonly used immunprecipitation technique for mapping the DNA-protein interactions in cells which are crucial for correct gene regulation. In a ChIP assay DNA-protein complexes (Chromatin) are selectively immunoprecipitated using antibodies directed against the protein of interest and the resulting fractions treated to separate the DNA and protein components.
