Abstract

Chromatin-associated proteins play critical roles in many cellular processes, including gene expression, epigenetic regulation, DNA repair, recombination, and replication. Especially, epigenetic landscape, shaped by a variety of chromatin-binding proteins, is dynamic and regulated in a context-dependent manner. In situ chromatin-binding assay is a powerful but simple tool to investigate how proteins, such as epigenetic components, associate with chromatin. This approach relies on the fact that chromatin bound proteins are more resistant to detergent extraction. Here, we describe a protocol for the in situ chromatin-binding assay used in Schizosaccaromyces pombe.
