Immunogen

This Ring1B antibody was raised against the recombinant full-length mouse protein.

Buffer

Purified IgG in 70 mM Tris (pH 8), 105 mM NaCl, 31 mM glycine, 0.07 mM EDTA, 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.

Ring1B antibody (mAb) tested by ChIP-chip.
ChIP was performed using the ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit (Cat. No. 53040) with chromatin from 4.5 million human embryonic stem cells and 4 µl of antibody. ChIP DNA was amplified by WGA, labeled and hybridized to a human tiling array. The two images show regions of strong binding on chromosomes 2 and 9.

Ring1B antibody (mAb) tested by ChIP-Seq.
ChIP was performed using Ring1B antibody with 30 µg chromatin from the wild-type mouse ESC and 4 µg of antibody. ChIP DNA was sequenced on the Illumina HiSeq and 19.5 million sequence tags were mapped to identify Ring1B binding sites. The image shows binding across a region of chromosome 2.

Background

Ring1B (also known as ring finger protein 2, RING2 or RNF2) is an essential component of the Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1 complex. The PRC1 complex is important for the transcriptional repression of genes involved in development and cell proliferation, such as the Hox genes. Ring1B also acts as an E3 ubiquitin ligase on histone H2A of the PRC1 complex.

Bridging Antibody to Improve ChIP, MeDIP and IP

Some isotypes of mouse IgG antibodies do not bind well to protein G-conjugated agarose/magnetic beads, which are commonly used in ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments. Capture efficiency can be improved by including an anti-mouse IgG bridging antibody because it binds with a strong affinity to both the protein G beads and the mouse IgG antibody. By increasing the affinity of the mouse primary antibody for the protein G bead, the Bridging Antibody for Mouse IgG can help improve the results of all ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments that use RING1B antibody (mAb).
