Neuron-specific chromatin signatures in mouse brain. (A) Representative gel picture for 25 cycle PCR product (ChIP-GLAS) from 4 independent replicates of Input I and ChIP C, and water control W. (B) Scatter plot showing correlation between Chip-to-input ratios signal from NeuN+ sorted nuclei (NeuN+ FACS) (x-axis) and unsorted nuclei (NON-FACS) (y-axis), using modification-independent antibody against C-terminus of histone H3 anti-H3. (C) Bar graphs showing ChIP-to-input ratio (y-axis) for (top row) dimethylated H3-lysine 4 (H3K4me2) and (bottom row) trimethylated H3-lysine 9 (H3K9me3) as determined for Mecp2, Gad1, B2m, and Gfap gene promoters in chromatin of NeuN+ FACS and NON-FACS nuclei from mouse forebrain. Data shown as mean ± S.E.M., N = 6/sorting; *p < 0.05, ANOVA NeuN+ FACS v.s. NON-FACS.
