ChIP is a very powerful technique that allows the localization of proteins on DNA regions in the genome. The principle is simple; the selective enrichment of a chromatin fraction containing a specific antigen. Antibodies that recognize a protein or protein modification are used to determine the relative abundance in the genome in vivo. The ChIP technique can be used in any area of research to further elucidate gene function and regulation in their native state.
