Summary: N-ChIP, different from X-ChIP which uses chromatin fixed with formaldehyde and fragmented by sonication, uses native chromatin prepared by nuclease digestion of cell nuclei.
- ChIP on Native Chromatin from Cells and Tissues (Epigenome Network of Excellence)
This protocol describes a ChIP assay performed on native chromatin extracted from cells, or tissues, to analyse histone methylation and acetylation at specific chromosomal sites. In addition, it describes different PCR-based methods that allow the analysis of a locus of interest in chromatin precipitated with antibodies to specific histone marks.

Carrier ChIP (CChIP) Protocol
(Epigenome Network of Excellence)
CChIP, based on the use of carrier chromatin, allows detailed and reproducible epigenetic analysis of as few as 100 cells. The procedure has been validated with primary mouse embryo material, but should be applicable to cells from various sources, including tissue biopsies and FACS-sorted cell populations. The protocol is for analysis of histone modifications in native, unfixed chromatin prepared by micrococcal nuclease digestion.

Crosslinking ChIP (X-ChIP)
ChIP is a powerful tool that allows the specific identification of proteins or histone modifications to regions of the
genome. Chromatin is isolated and antibodies to the antigen of interest are used to determine whether the target
binds to a specific DNA sequence or to map the distribution across the genome (microarray or DNA sequencing).
This can be performed both spatially and temporally. This protocol provides specific details of how a ChIP can be
performed on cells.

Immunoprecipitation of native chromatin: NChIP
(Chromatin and Gene Expression Group, The University of Birmingham)
NChIP procedure from the isolation of chromatin (from cultured cells), through the immunoprecipitation step and subsequent DNA and
protein analysis. This method is used primarily for analysis of histones post-translationally modified at specific residues
