Epitope tagging ChIP-seq of DNA binding proteins using CETCh-seq



  • Chromatin immunoprecipitation followed by next-generation DNA sequencing (ChIP-seq) has been used to identify transcription factor (TF) binding proteins throughout the genome. Unfortunately, this approach traditionally requires commercially available, ChIP-seq grade antibodies that frequently fail to generate acceptable datasets. To obtain data for the many TFs for which there is no appropriate antibody, we recently developed a new method for performing ChIP-seq by epitope tagging endogenous TFs using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technology (CETCh-seq). Here, we describe our general protocol of CETCh-seq for both adherent and nonadherent cell lines using a commercially available FLAG antibody.
