Mammalian Chromatin Extraction Kit is used for isolating chromatin or DNA-protein complex from mammalian cells or tissues.
Chromatin immunoprecipitaton (ChIP) offers an advantageous tool for studying protein-DNA interaction. With ChIP, the experimenter can determine if a specific protein binds to the specific sequences of a gene in living cells by combining with PCR (ChIP-PCR), microarray (ChIP-chip), or sequencing (ChIP-Seq) techniques. For example, the measurement of the amount of methylated histone H3 at lysine 9 (meH3-K9) associated with a specific gene promoter region under various conditions can be achieved through a ChIP-PCR assay, while recruitment of meH3-K9 to the promoters on a genome-wide scale can be detected by ChIP-chip. In particular, the ChIP method with specific antibodies directly against various transcriptional factors is widely demanded. For performing ChIP, chromatin or DNA-protein complex in cells or tissues should be first isolated.
The Mammalian Chromatin Extraction Kit is suitable for isolating chromatin or DNA-protein complex from mammalian cells or tissues in a simple and rapid format. Chromatin prepared by this kit can be used in a variety of chromatin immunoprecipitation methods. The isolated chromatin can also be used in other chromatin-related applications such as in vitro protein-DNA binding assays and nuclear enzyme assays.

Features & Benefits:
Extremely fast procedure: the entire procedure from cell/tissue sample to ready-to-use chromatin is less than 60 minutes.Convenient and flexible: the kit is suitable for preparing both native chromatin and cross-linked chromatin from monolayer or suspension cells, or from tissues.Unsheared chromatin makes it customizable for various analysis workflows that require either intact or fragmented chromatin, including ChIP, in vitro protein-DNA interaction analysis, nuclear enzyme assay, etc.
