eGFP (Aequorea victoria)
whole organism
Method: immunoblot
Attachment from submitter
exempt from standards
A primary characterization could not be completed for this antibody lot as it is no longer available. An exemption was requested from the ENCODE Antibody Review Panel and was granted on November 19, 2017.
Submitter comment
We have run out of this antibody lot so we cannot do a primary characterization. This antibody lot was a gift from Anthony Hyman at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics
Reviewer comment
Exemption granted on the account that this is an antibody to GFP and not to a protein naturally produced in flies or worms and assuming, of course, that the ChIP-seq peaks are different for the different tagged proteins (which would rule out cross-reactivity with a cellular protein).

eGFP (Aequorea victoria)
Method: ChIP-seq comparison
Attachment from submitter
ChIP-seq (ENCSR336KUP) was performed with an antibody (ENCAB564AON) that targets the EFLl-1 protein in L1 larva. ChIP-seq (ENCSR898YRV) was also performed with an antibody (ENCAB435FBQ) that targets the eGFP tag in the YL424 strain which stably expresses eGFP-EFL-1. Occupancy sites were identified with the MACS peak caller and compared using IDR (Landt et al. 2012, Li et al. 2011, https://sites.google.com/site/anshulkundaje/projects/idr). Results: Most rescue ratios (Np/Nt) and self-consistency ratios (N1/N2) ratios are less than 4, indicating significant replication of binding sites when ChIP is performed with the two antibodies directed against EFL-1.
Reviewer comment
The IDR comparison between the replicate 2s had self-consistency and rescue ratios ~1.5 or below as allowed by the standards used in modENCODE.
