Abstract

The brown algae are an important but understudied group of multicellular marine organisms. A number of genetic and genomic tools have been developed for the model brown alga Ectocarpus; this includes, most recently, chromatin immunoprecipitation methodology, which allows genome-wide detection and analysis of histone post-translational modifications. Post-translational modifications of histone molecules have been shown to play an important role in gene regulation in organisms from other major eukaryotic lineages, and this methodology will therefore be a very useful tool to investigate genome function in the brown algae. This article provides a detailed, step-by-step description of the Ectocarpus ChIP protocol, which effectively addresses the difficult problem of efficiently extracting chromatin from cells protected by a highly resistant cell wall. The protocol described here will be an essential tool for the future application of chromatin analysis methodologies in brown algal research.
