Abstract
Chromatin immunoprecipitation followed by sequencing (ChIP-seq) is a widely used technique for genome-wide mapping of protein-DNA interactions and epigenetic marks in vivo. Recent studies have suggested an important role of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) at chromatin. This molecular chaperone assists other proteins to acquire their mature and functional conformation and helps in the assembly of many complexes. In this chapter, we provide specific details on how to perform Hsp90 ChIP-seq from Drosophila Schneider (S2) cells. Briefly, the cells are simultaneously lyzed and reversibly cross-linked to stabilize protein-DNA interactions. Chromatin is prepared from isolated nuclei and sheared by sonication. Hsp90-bound loci are immunoprecipitated and the corresponding DNA fragments are purified and sequenced. The described approach revealed that Hsp90 binds close to the transcriptional start site of around one-third of all Drosophila coding genes and characterized the role of the chaperone at chromatin.
