The ability to efficiently detect and quantify DNA methylation (i.e., 5-methylcytosine) has become essential for epigenetic-based research. To date, a number of methods have been developed for this purpose including high-performance capillary electrophoresis, bisulfite sequencing, and methylated DNA immunoprecipitation.
The 5-mC DNA ELISA Kit is a convenient and powerful tool that allows the researcher to accurately quantitate 5-mC in any DNA sample in less than 3 hours. The kit features a unique Anti-5-Methylcytosine monoclonal antibody that is both sensitive and specific for 5-mC. The assay is compatible with a wide range of input DNA from vertebrate, plant, and microbial sources as well as PCR amplicons and fragmented DNA. Percent 5-mC in a DNA sample can be accurately quantified from a standard curve generated with specially designed controls included with the kit. Also, the fast, streamlined workflow is ideal for high-throughput analyses.
