ChIP-qPCR starts with the treatment of intact nuclei with formaldehyde for the induction of protein-DNA crosslinks, trapping chromatin interacting with specific proteins (eg. transcription factors).
When there is a need to quickly analyze samples using a number of different PCR assays, it is likely that optimal conditions for each assay will not be the same. First, different assays often will require different annealing temperatures for their primers. In addition, amplicons may be designed to be of different lengths and therefore require varying durations of the extension step.READ MORE
