Chromatin Immunoprecipitations (ChIP) were performed with cross-linked chromatin samples from 4 X 106 of HeLa cells with either A)1:300 dilution of Go-ChIP-Grade™ Purified anti-RNA Polymerase II Antibody (clone CTD4H8, Cat. No. 904003) or B) equal amount of Purified Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control Antibody (Clone MG1-45, Cat. No. 401401) by using Go-ChIP-Grade™ Protein G Enzymatic Kit (Cat. No. 699904). The enriched DNA was purified and quantified by real-time qPCR using primers targeting human GAPDH gene region or α-Satellite repeats. The amount of immunoprecipitated DNA in each sample is represented as signal relative to total amount of input chromatin.

    Total lysates (15 µg protein) from HeLa (lane 1), Jurkat (lane 2) and Raw cells (lane 3) were resolved by electrophoresis (4-12% Bis-Tris gel), transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with 1:500 diluted (1 µg/mL) Purified anti-RNA Polymerase II Antibody, clone CTD4H8 (upper). Proteins were visualized by chemiluminescence detection using a 1:3000 diluted goat anti-mouse-IgG secondary antibody conjugated to HRP for the anti-RNA Polymerase II Antibody or 1:5000 diluted Direct-Blot HRP anti-β-Actin Antibody, clone 2F1-1(lower).

Description

RPB1 is the catalytic and largest component of RNA polymerase II, which synthesizes mRNA precursors and many functional non-coding RNAs. It forms the polymerase active center together with RPB2, the second largest subunit. Polymerase II (Pol II) is the central component of the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. It is composed of mobile elements that move relatively to each other. RPB1 is part of the core element with the central large cleft, the clamp element that moves to open and close the cleft, and the jaws that are thought to grab the incoming DNA template. At the start of transcription, a single DNA template strand of the promoter is positioned within the central active site cleft of Pol II. Then, a bridging helix emanates from RPB1 and crosses the cleft near the catalytic site, which acts as a ratchet that moves the RNA-DNA hybrid through the active site by switching from straight to bent conformations during each neuocleotide addition. This promotes translocation of Pol II. Pol II moves on the template during transcription elongation. Elongation is influenced by the phosphorylation status of the C-terminal domain (CTD) of Pol II's largest subunit (RPB1), which serves as a platform for assembling factors that regulate transcription initiation, elongation, termination, and mRNA processing. It can act as a RNA-dependent RNA polymerase when associated with small delta antigen of Hepatitis delta virus, being able to conform as both a replicate and transcriptase for the viral RNA circular genome.
