    A Gel-Based Assay for Probing Protein Translocation on dsDNA
    Authors:  Christiane Brugger and Alexandra M. Deaconescu, date: 07/20/2021, view: 85, Q&A: 0

    Protein translocation on DNA represents the key biochemical activity of ssDNA translocases (aka helicases) and dsDNA translocases such as chromatin remodelers. Translocation depends on DNA binding but is a distinct process as it typically involves

    Characterize the Interaction of the DNA Helicase PriA with the Stalled DNA Replication Fork Using Atomic Force Microscopy
    Authors:  Yaqing Wang, Zhiqiang Sun, Piero R. Bianco and Yuri L. Lyubchenko, date: 03/05/2021, view: 2286, Q&A: 0

    In bacteria, the restart of stalled DNA replication forks requires the DNA helicase PriA. PriA can recognize and remodel abandoned DNA replication forks, unwind DNA in the 3'-to-5' direction, and facilitate the loading of the helicase DnaB onto the

    Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) to Assess Histone Marks in Auxin-treated Arabidopsis thaliana Inflorescence Tissue
    Authors:  André Kuhn and Lars Østergaard, date: 12/05/2020, view: 1461, Q&A: 0
    Chromatin immunoprecipitation coupled with quantitative PCR (ChIP-qPCR) or high-throughput sequencing (ChIP-seq) has become the gold standard for the identification of binding sites of DNA binding proteins and the localization of histone ...
    A Detailed and Radioisotope-free Protocol for Electrophoretic Mobility Shift Assay (EMSA)
    Author:  Nguyen Hoai Nguyen, date: 08/20/2020, view: 1487, Q&A: 0
    To comprehensively characterize the functions of a transcription factor (TF), it is required to analyze the interaction of this TF with its targeted loci. Several methods such as β-glucuronidase (GUS) or luciferase reporter, yeast one-hybrid (Y1H), ...
    In vitro Protein-DNA Binding Assay (AlphaScreen® Technology)
    Authors:  Mika Nomoto, Yasuomi Tada and Hironaka Tsukagoshi, date: 02/05/2019, view: 5111, Q&A: 0
    Identification of specific DNA binding sites of transcription factors is important in understanding their functions. Recent techniques allow us to investigate genome-wide in vivo binding positions by chromatin immunoprecipitation combined ...
    Microtitre Plate Based Cell-SELEX Method
    Authors:  Munish Shorie and Harmanjit Kaur, date: 10/20/2018, view: 4636, Q&A: 0
    Aptamers have emerged as a novel category in the field of bioreceptors due to their wide applications ranging from biosensing to therapeutics. Several variations of their screening process, called SELEX have been reported which can yield sequences ...
    ChIP-seq Experiment and Data Analysis in the Cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803
    Authors:  Joaquín Giner-Lamia, Miguel A. Hernández-Prieto and Matthias E. Futschik, date: 06/20/2018, view: 9029, Q&A: 0
    Nitrogen is an essential nutrient for all living organisms. In cyanobacteria, a group of oxygenic photosynthetic bacteria, nitrogen homeostasis is maintained by an intricate regulatory network around the transcription factor NtcA. Although ...
    An Improved Method for Measuring Chromatin-binding Dynamics Using Time-dependent Formaldehyde Crosslinking
    Formaldehyde crosslinking is widely used in combination with chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) to measure the locations along DNA and relative levels of transcription factor (TF)-DNA interactions in vivo. However, the measurements that ...
    Chromatin Affinity Purification (ChAP) from Arabidopsis thaliana Rosette Leaves Using in vivo Biotinylation System
    Authors:  Weronika Sura and Piotr A. Ziolkowski, date: 01/05/2018, view: 6148, Q&A: 0
    Chromatin Affinity Purification (ChAP) is widely used to study chromatin architecture and protein complexes interacting with DNA. Here we present an efficient method for ChAP from Arabidopsis thaliana rosette leaves, in which in vivo ...
    Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Experiments from Whole Drosophila Embryos or Larval Imaginal Discs
    Chromatin Immunoprecipitation coupled either to qPCR (qChIP) or high-throughput sequencing (ChIP-Seq) has been extensively used in the last decades to identify the DNA binding sites of transcription factors or the localization of various histone ...
