Dataset link SALL4 ChIP-chip using NimbleGen HG18 RefSeq Promoter tiling array (2.7kb)

Experimental Protocol

The global targets of SALL4 were determined using a NimbleGen promoter tiling array (2.7kb, information below) in the human cell line NB4. Because SALL4 is thought to play a significant role in leukemogenesis we focused primarily on genes involved in apoptosis and only used the ChIP-chip array as a screening tool to identify potential genes that may bind these genes. Upon identification and verification of apoptosis genes bound by SALL4 we utilized functional assays to determine the effect of SALL4 on these genes. In addition, gene expression profiling was used to determine pathways functionally altered by Sall4 reduction.
