This antibody meets EpiCypher’s lot-specific SNAP-Certified™ criteria for specificity and efficient target enrichment in CUT&RUN. This requires <20% cross-reactivity to related histone PTMs determined using the SNAP-CUTANA™ K-MetStat Panel of spike-in controls (EpiCypher 19-1002, Figure 1). High target efficiency is confirmed by consistent genomic enrichment at 500k and 50k starting cells (Figures 2-3).

Validation Data

Figure 1: SNAP specificity analysis in CUT&RUN
CUT&RUN was performed on 500k and 50k native K562 cells with the SNAP-CUTANA™ K-MetStat Panel (EpiCypher 19-1002) spiked-in prior to the addition of 0.5 µg H4K20me3 antibody. CUT&RUN sequencing reads were aligned to the unique DNA barcodes corresponding to each nucleosome in the K-MetStat panel (x-axis). Data are expressed as a percent relative to on-target recovery (H4K20me3 set to 100%). Error bars represent mean ± SEM for the duplicate DNA barcodes in a single CUT&RUN experiment.

Figure 2: Antibody efficiency analysis in CUT&RUN using cell input correlation
Genome-wide correlation analysis was performed to compare H4K20me3 antibody enrichment in CUT&RUN using 500k cell and 50k cell inputs. The log of the number of reads per 75 bp binned region across the genome is plotted for both samples. CUT&RUN data generated using this H4K20me3 antibody are highly correlated between the two cell inputs (Pearson correlation r = 0.953), indicating high efficiency of H4K20me3 antibody target recovery.

Figure 3: H4K20me3 CUT&RUN representative tracks at 500k and 50k cells
Gene browser shots generated using the Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV, Broad Institute) show representative loci for H4K20me3 antibody tested in CUT&RUN using 500k and 50k cells. Similar results in peak structure and location were observed for both cell inputs. Methods: CUT&RUN was performed using the CUTANA™ ChIC/CUT&RUN Kit v.2.0 (EpiCypher 14-1048) adapted to high throughout Tecan liquid handling. Library preparation was performed with 5 ng DNA using the NEBNext® Ultra™ II DNA Library Prep Kit for Illumina®. Libraries were run on an Illumina NextSeq2000 with paired-end sequencing (2x50bp). Sample sequencing depth was 4.6 million reads (IgG 50k cell input), 10.4 million reads (H4K20me3 50k cell input), and 5.7 million reads (H4K20me3 500k cell input).
