The CpGenome™ DNA Modification Kit is used to create methylation-specific sequence alterations in any DNA sample. Using chemical treatment, the kit converts all unmethylated cytosine residues to uracil. Methylated cytosine residues are unaltered in this process. Therefore, the chemically-treated DNA sequence will differ only if it was originally unmethylated in vivo. After sequence conversion, methylation […]
The SIRTainty™ Class III HDAC Assay utilizes a novel patent pending technology for the sensitive detection of all known sirtuin family members. This easy to perform assay employs nicotinamidase to measure nicotinamide generated upon cleavage of NAD+ during sirtuin mediated deacetylation of a substrate providing a direct assessment of the activity of class III HDAC […]
The CpGenome Turbo Bisulfite Modification Kit is designed to simplify and streamline the bisulfite modification process. This kit contains all key reagents for bisulfite modification to allow for the recovery of modified DNA in about 90 minutes as compared to 3-16 hours for similar kits. This rapid, but effective approach employs a proprietary mixture of […]
T4 Phage β-glucosyltransferase specifically transfers the glucose moiety of uridine diphosphoglucose (UDP-Glc) to the 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) residues in double-stranded DNA, making beta-glucosyl-5-hydroxymethylcytosine.
Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) is an important technique allowing the analysis of in vivo interactions of proteins with genomic DNA. Any chromatin-associated or DNA binding protein can be analyzed with this technique, provided a good antibody to the protein exists. One can measure different proteins localized to a specific region of the genome, or the genome […]
