This EED antibody was raised against full-length recombinant human EED protein.


Purified IgG in PBS with 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.


EED antibody (mAb) tested by ChIP-Seq.
ChIP was performed using the ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit (Cat. No. 53040) with chromatin from a human B cell lymphoma cell line (4.5 million cells) and 4 µl of antibody. ChIP DNA was sequenced on the Illumina HiSeq and 32 million sequence tags were mapped to identify EED binding sites. The image on the left shows EED binding across a 1.6 million bp region on chromosome 6. The image on the right shows EED binding at the STX16 start site.

EED detection by Immunohistochemistry. The analysis was performed using human tonsil paraffin section and the EED mAb.


EED (extraembryonic ectoderm) is a component of the Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein complex PRC2. The PRC2 complex also contains EZH2 and SUZ12 and is recruited to Polycomb response elements and results in the methylation of histone H3 and lysine 27 and the silencing of gene expression. PRC2 initiates repression of the Hox genes during development and is involved in the maintenance of stem cell pluripotency. EED is a member of the superfamily of WD-40 repeat protein family and is required for PRC2-mediated H3K27 methylation. The PRC2 complex may also recruit platform DNMTs, thereby linking two systems of epigenetic repression.
