For each replicate, 2 ×10^7 nuclei were re-suspended in 1 mL of RIPA buffer (1% NP-40, 0.5% sodium deoxycholate, 0.1% SDS in PBS at pH 7.4). Samples were sonicated using a Diagenode Bioruptor XL sonicator at 4°C to fragment chromatin to 200-500 bp segments. Insoluble components were removed by centrifugation for 15 min at 15000 rpm. We conjugated 5 µg of anti-GR to 200 µl of sheep anti-rabbit IgG magnetic beads (Life Technologies). Sheared chromatin in RIPA was then added to the antibody-conjugated beads and incubated on a rotator overnight at 4°C. After incubation, beads were washed five times with a LiCl wash buffer (100 mM Tris at pH 7.5, 500 mM LiCl, 1% NP-40, 1% sodium deoxycholate), and remaining ions were removed with a single wash with 1 mL of TE (10 mM Tris-HCl at pH 7.5, 0.1 mM Na2EDTA) at 4°C. Chromatin and antibodies were eluted from beads by incubating for 1 h at 65°C in IP elution buffer (1% SDS, 0.1 M NaHCO3), followed by incubating overnight at 65°C to reverse formaldehyde cross-links. DNA was purified using MinElute DNA purification columns (Qiagen). Illumina TruSeq adapted libraries were constructed using an Apollo 324 NGS Library Prep System with a PrepX Complete ILMN DNA Library Kit (WaferGen Biosystems Inc). ChIP products were amplified with 15 cycles of PCR, and fragments 150-700 bp in length were selected using an AxyPrep MAG PCR Clean-Up Kit (Axygen MAG-PCRCL-50). Libraries were sequenced using single end 50 bp reads on an Illumina HiSeq.
