The following primary antibodies were used: NF-[kappa]B p65 (chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) grade, #ab7970) was obtained from Abeam (Cambridge, MA, USA).

Methods: Binding capacity of mutated TP53 in MDA-MB-468 breast cancer cell line to BRCA1 and RAD51 proteins in comparison to WT TP53 in MCF7 cell line was studied by Immunoprecipitation. In vitro studies were performed by GST-WT p53 pull-down assays in these cell lines to assess the interaction of GST-WT p53 with BRCA1 and RAD51 proteins.

Called SIF-seq, for site-specific integration fluorescence-activated cell sorting followed by sequencing, this new technique developed by researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) complements existing genomic tools, such as ChIP-seq (chromatin immunoprecipitation followed by sequencing), and offers some additional benefits.
