RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) bound chromatin interactions were extracted with Chromatin Interaction Analysis with Paired-End Tag (ChIA-PET) sequencing, in order to study the transcription regulations with RNAPII-associated long-range chromatin interactions. Five cell lines, namely MCF7 (ATCC# HTB-22), K562 (ATCC# CCL-243), HCT116 (ATCC# CCL-247), HeLa (ATCC# CCL-2.2), and NB4 (Roussel and Lanotte, 2001) (provided by Dr. Sherman Weissman, Yale University), were grown under standard culture conditions and harvested at log phase. Harvested cells were cross-linked using 1% formaldehyde followed by neutralization with 0.2M glycine. Chromatin was isolated and subjected to ChIA-PET protocol as described in Fullwood et al (Fullwood et al: An oestrogen-receptor-alpha-bound human chromatin interactome. Nature 2009, 462(7269):58-64). The ChIA-PET sequence reads were processed and analyzed using ChIA-PET Tool (Li et al: ChIA-PET tool for comprehensive chromatin interaction analysis with paired-end tag sequencing. Genome Biol 2010, 11(2):R22).
