Cleavage Under Targets and Release Using Nuclease Sequencing (CUT&RUN-sequencing) is a powerful technique used to profile histone modifications and transcription factors genome wide. CUT&RUN incorporates a novel hybrid Protein A/G-Micrococcal Nuclease (pA/G-MNase) to target antibody-protein complexes within unfixed permeabilized cells. Once activated, pA/G-MNase cleaves the adjacent DNA resulting in the targeted release of protein-DNA complexes into the supernatant for paired-end sequencing. CUT&RUN requires low cell numbers (1-100+ cells) and outperforms ChIP-Seq protocols in resolution, signal-to-noise ratio and depth of sequencing required.
