Non B Form DNA Is Enriched at Centromeres

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 5889037
PMID: 29365169
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msy010
call_split See protocol

[…] CUT&RUN was performed as described (, ). In brief, K562 or Cos-7 cells were gently washed twice in room temperature Wash buffer [20 mM HEPES pH 7.5, 150 mM NaCl, 0.5 mM spermidine and a Roche complete […]


A cut above

PMCID: 5310838
PMID: 28199181
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.25000

[…] ow, in eLife, Peter Skene and Steven Henikoff of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center report that they have developed a new technique called ‘cleavage under targets and release using nuclease’ (CUT&RUN) that has the potential to overcome the limitations of X-ChIP ().CUT&RUN is similar to native ChIP in that it uses the same enzyme, MNase, to fragment the DNA (). However, unlike native ChIP, […]


An efficient targeted nuclease strategy for high resolution mapping of DNA binding sites

PMCID: 5310842
PMID: 28079019
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.21856.033

[…] tocol (Appendix 1), and achieved near-complete protein extraction with no evidence of protein redistribution (). Under native conditions, we identified 2298 sites with high motif scores. In contrast, CUT&RUN mapping of CTCF detected ~22,000 sites that were also present in X-ChIP (), with a diverse range of motif scores (). As expected, all sites identified by native ChIP also were robustly detecte […]


Protecting western redcedar from deer browsing—with a passing reference to TRP channels

PMCID: 4843894
PMID: 27227013
DOI: 10.1080/23328940.2015.1047078

[…] life more sustainable? – received only limited coverage.If one thinks about the greenest concepts of the past century, the concept of tree farming immediately comes to mind. Tree farming replaced the cut-and-run timber-harvesting approach with sustainable tree growing (farming) in a perpetual cycle: planting – active management (which often includes intermediate harvests) – final harvest – plantin […]


Rad51–Rad52 Mediated Maintenance of Centromeric Chromatin in Candida albicans

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 3998917
PMID: 24762765
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1004344
call_split See protocol

[…] DNA to enrich for single stranded DNA. The enriched DNA was loaded onto 0.4% agarose gel in 1X TBE buffer and run for 15–16 h at 15–20 volts. After run in the first dimension, the desired lanes were cut and run in the second dimension (at 90° to the first) in 1.1% agarose gel in 1X TBE for 2–4 h at 100–125 volts in presence of EtBr (0.3 mg/ml). After that, Southern blotting was done under alkalin […]


The Mitochondrial Chaperone TRAP1 Promotes Neoplastic Growth by Inhibiting Succinate Dehydrogenase

PMCID: 3677096
PMID: 23747254
DOI: 10.1016/j.cmet.2013.04.019

[…] xperiments were carried out on isolated mitochondria in order to identify ETC complexes. After a first electrophoresis in nondenaturing conditions, bands were visualized with Coomassie blue staining, cut, and run on SDS-PAGE for the identification of protein components by western immunoblot. Crosslinking assays were performed on isolated mitochondria incubated with the membrane-permeable, homobifu […]
