- Product overview
DNA methylation is a covalent modification of the cytosine ring at the 5' position of a CpG dinucleotide which leads to epigenetic inactivation of genes when found in 5'-CpG-3'dinucleotides within promoters or in the first exon of genes. It has been demonstrated that DNA methylation plays an important role in the regulation of gene expression, tumorigenesis, and other genetic and epigenetic diseases, and that alterations in DNA methylation patterns are associated with cancer.
EpiSeeker methylated DNA Immunoprecipitation (MeDIP) Kit - DNA (ab117133) enables the user to enrich methylated DNA by using an antibody specific to methyl cytosine (5-mC) to immunoprecipitate methylated genomic DNA (MeDIP). The enriched methylated fractions can then be used in various downstream applications including qualitative and quantitative PCR, as well as southern blot and DNA microarray.

EpiSeeker methylated DNA Immunoprecipitation (MeDIP) Kit - DNA images
For enrichment of methylated DNA using ab117133, DNA (0.5 ug) isolated from MCF-7 cells was added into the microwell. Methylated DNA was captured by 5-mC antibody prebound to the microwells.
Captured methylated DNA was used for analyzing methylation level of GAPDH and MLH1 promoter with the use of primers and probes specific to GAPDH and MLH1 promoters, respectively.
