Tet1 antibody (pAb) tested by ChIP-Seq.
ChIP was performed using the ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit (Cat. No. 53040) with 25 µg of chromatin from a human testicle and 4 µl of TET1 antibody. ChIP DNA was sequenced on the Illumina HiSeq and 15 million sequence tags were mapped to identify TET1 binding sites. TET1 ChIP-Seq data shows the expected enrichment of TET1 at CpG islands.

Background

Tet1 (Ten-Eleven Translocation-1; methylcytosine dioxygenase) is a protein that catalyzes the conversion of the modified genomic base 5-methylcytosine (5mC) into 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) which can lead to cytosine demethylation by either further oxidation via Tet proteins to 5-formylcytosine (5fC) and 5-carboxycytosine (5caC) or deamination into 5-hydroxymethyluracil (5hmU) and then subsequent replacement by unmethylated cytosine by the base excision repair system. Methylation at the C5 position of cytosine bases is an epigenetic modification of the mammalian genome which plays an important role in transcriptional regulation. Tet1 preferentially binds to CpG-rich sequences at promoters of both transcriptionally active and polycomb-repressed genes. By controlling the levels of 5mC and 5hmC at gene promoters, it may regulate the gene expression silencing induced by cytosine methylation. May have a dual function by also repressing the expression of a subset of genes through recruitment of transcriptional repressors to promoters. Involved in the balance between pluripotency and lineage commitment of cells, it plays a role in embryonic stem cells maintenance and inner cell mass cell specification.

Storage

Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.
