Cells from SCID mice, >95% CD4 CD8 TCR-negative, were cultured with or without stimulation for 2 h, and IL-1α was also added as indicated. To correct for differences in efficiency of immune precipitation between these samples due to the extensive differences in cell physiology, ChIP analysis results for diMeH3/K4 at the locus for each sample were normalized by results at the S16 ribosomal protein locus. Two independent experiments were done with similar results.
