Applications

ChIP Validated ChIP-Seq Validated Western Blot Validated Immunofluorescence Validated

Application Notes


Validated Applications:
ChIP: 10 µl per ChIP
ChIP-Seq: 10 µl each
WB:* 1:250 - 1:1,000 dilution

*Note: Many chromatin-bound proteins are not soluble in a low salt nuclear extract and fractionate to the pellet. Therefore, we recommend a High Salt / Sonication Protocol when preparing nuclear extracts for Western blot. An additional band at approximately 20 kDa is also detected by this antibody in HeLa and HEK lysates, but not in mouse CSML0 cell lysate.

Published Applications:
ChIP
WB
IF (FFPE)
RNA CLIP

For Suz12, we also offer AbFlex® Suz12 Recombinant Antibody (rAb).  For details, see Catalog No. 91163.

Immunogen

This Suz12 antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to the C-terminus of human Suz12.

Buffer

1X PBS, 30% glycerol, 0.035% sodium azide.

Suz12 antibody (pAb) tested by ChIP-Seq.
ChIP was performed using the ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit (Cat. No. 53040) with 30 ug of chromatin from a human B cell lymphoma cell line and 10 µl of antibody. ChIP DNA was sequenced on the Illumina HiSeq and 15 million sequence tags were mapped to identify Suz12 binding sites. The image shows binding across a region of chromosome 12.

Suz12 antibody (pAb) tested by ChIP.
Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) was performed using the ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit (Cat. No. 53040) with 30 µg of chromatin from human non-small cell lung carcinoma cell line NCI-H1299 cells and 10 µl of Suz12 antibody. ChIP DNA was used in qPCR with the control primer pairs or gene-specific primer pairs as indicated. Data are presented as Binding Events Detected per 1000 Cells using Active Motif's Epigenetic Services normalization scheme which accounts for primer efficiency and the amount of chromatin used in the ChIP reaction.

HeLa cell nuclear extract (25 μg) was probed with Suz12 pAb (1:500 dilution).

Background

Suz12 (Suppressor-of-Zeste 12 protein, also designated as ChET9, JJAZ1 protein) is a component of the Polycomb group complexes 2, 3 and 4 (PRC2, PRC3 and PRC4), which also contain the histone methyltransferase EZH2, EED (Embryonic Ectoderm Development protein) protein and the histone-binding proteins RbAP46 and RbAP48. PRC2 is responsible for di- and trimethylation of histone 3 at lysine 27 (Histone H3K27me2 and Histone H3K27me3), which leads to transcriptional repression of the target genes. Suz12 is a nuclear protein belonging to the VEFS family. Suz12 contains a zinc-finger binding motif and a VEFS box, which is required for the interaction between Suz12 and EZH2.

Positive Control

Active Motif's HeLa nuclear extract (Catalog No. 36010) can be used as a positive control for Suz12 antibody.

qPCR Primers

Active Motif's Human Positive Control Primer Set CCND2 (Cat. No. 71008) and Human Negative Control Primer Set 3 (Cat. No. 71023) have been validated for performing qPCR and endpoint PCR when this antibody has been used for ChIP on human samples. For ChIP experiments with this antibody on mouse samples, the Mouse Negative Control Primer Set 1 (Cat. No. 71011) has been validated for both qPCR and endpoint PCR.

Chromatin IP Assays

This antibody has been validated for use in ChIP and/or ChIP-Seq, and can be used with Active Motif's ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit or our magnetic bead-based ChIP-IT® Express Kits.
