Abstract

<p>(<b>A</b>) Chromatin immunoprecipitation assay on thymocytes and isolated spleen B cells detecting the trimethyl-lysine 4 epigenetic mark on Histone H3 from single reporter (hCD2:1-8 line 4) and dual-reporter (hCD2:1-8:B7 line 10) transgenic mice. Y-axis values represent the ratio of percent H3K4me3 marks obtained at the hCD2 promoter to that detected at the endogenous GAPDH promoter, an internal standard used here as a normalizing control. (<b>B</b>) Confirmation of ChIP results using distinct, independent lines of transgenic mice bearing single reporter (hCD2:1-8 line 29) and dual reporter (hCD2:1-8:B7 line 22) transgenes. For both experiments, the Y-axis values are derived from the formula hCD2 [H3K4me3 – IgG/input]/GAPDH [H3K4me3 – IgG/input].</p
