ChIP E(z)

Figure 1. ChIP recovery.

ChIP and qPCR analysis were done as described [Schwartz YB, Kahn TG, Nix DA, Li XY, Bourgon R, et al. (2006) Genome-wide analysis of Polycomb targets in Drosophila melanogaster. Nat Genet 38: 700–705. doi: 10.1038/ng1817]. Chromatin from Su(z)12 mutant cell line (Kahn T. et all, submitted) served as a negative control, chromatin from Ras3 cells served as a positive control. Quantitative PCR was performed with primers specific for BXD-PRE of Ubx gene (Polycomb target gene in repressed state), used as positive controls, and for intergenic region, used as negative control. Figure 1 shows the ChIP recovery, measured by qPCR as a % of input (the relative amount of immunoprecipitated DNA compared to input DNA). Chromatin from 5x107 cells and 3mg of anti-E(z) antibody were used for each ChIP reaction.

Background Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase (Ez) is a Polycomb group (PcG) protein, and a catalytic subunit of the Esc/E(z) complex. By methylating Lys-9 and Lys-27 of histone H3, this complex is involved in transcriptional repression of target genes. E(z) is important for the repression during the first six hours of embryogenesis. The Esc/E(z) complex, together with the recruitment of the PRC1 complex, is necessary for the repression of homeotic target genes.

Alternative names: Lysine N-methyltransferase 6, Protein enhancer of zeste
