DNA methylation is a covalent modification of the cytosine ring at the 5' position, resulting in 5-methylcytosine (5-mC). In somatic cells, 5-mC is found almost exclusively in the context of paired symmetrical methylation of the dinucleotide CpG. The biological important of 5-mC as a major epigenetic modification in phenotype and gene expression has been recognized widely. Quantification of 5-mC content or global methylation status in cells such as tumor cells could provide very useful information for detection and analysis of cancer.
EpiSeeker methylated DNA Quantification Kit (Colorimetric) (ab117128) is a complete set of optimized buffers and reagents to quantify global DNA methylation by specifically measuring levels of 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) in a microplate-based format.
It can be paired to use with EpiSeeker hydroxymethylated DNA Quantification Kit (Colorimetric) (ab117130), which specifically quantifies 5-hmC, for simultaneously quantification of both methylated and hydroxymethylated DNA.
Store ESM3, ESM4, ESM6, and ESM7 at –20°C away from light.
Store ESM1, ESM5, ESM8, and 8-Well Assay Strips at 4°C away from light.
Store remaining components (ESM2 and ESM9) at room temperature away from light.
All components of the kit are stable for 6 months from the date of shipment, when stored properly.
