Treatment of DNA with sodium bisulfite leads to the deamination of cytosine residues and converts them to uracil, while 5-mC residues remain the same. These changes in the DNA sequence provide information about the methylation status of a DNA region with single-nucleotide resolution when detected in subsequent sequencing analysis.
Our bisulfite conversion kits have been optimized to accurately (>99%) convert unmethylated cytosine into uracil. With the ability to use a broad range of sample material, our range of bisulfite conversion kits give you the flexibility needed for your methylation studies.
