    Bisulfite conversion

    Bisulfite modification of DNA is the most commonly used, "gold standard" method for DNA methylation studies providing single nucleotide resolution. This technology is based on the chemical conversion of unmethylated cytosine to uracil. Methylated cytosines are protected from this conversion allowing to determine D... Learn more

    Methylated DNA immunoprecipitation

    The Methylated DNA IP (MeDIP) is based on the affinity purification of methylated DNA using an antibody directed against 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) or 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) in the case of hMeDIP. How it works In brief, Methyl DNA IP is performed as follows: Genomic DNA from cultured cells or tissues is pr... Learn more

    Methylbinding domain protein

    The MBD approach is based on the very high affinity of a H6-GST-MBD fusion protein for methylated DNA. This protein consists of the methyl binding domain (MBD) of human MeCP2, as a C-terminal fusion with Glutathione-S-transferase (GST) containing an N-terminal His6-tag. The H6-GST-MBD fusion protein can be used to... Learn more

  • Epigenetics Chromatin Analysis

    Epigenetics research addresses alterations to chromatin that propagate different patterns of transcription or gene expression and silencing. The major components of chromatin are DNA and histone proteins. Two copies of each histone core protein (H2A, H2B, H3 & H4) are assembled into an octamer, wrapped around by DNA to form a nucleosome core. The nucleosome controls the accessibility of DNA to the transcription machinery and chromatin remodelling factors. Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) is a method used to determine the location of genome binding sites for a specific protein of interest, giving invaluabl... Learn more


    Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) coupled with quantitative PCR can be used to investigate protein-DNA interaction at known genomic binding sites. if sites are not known, qPCR primers can also be designed against potential regulatory regions such as promoters. ChIP-qPCR is advantageous in studies that focus o... Learn more


    Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) coupled with high-throughput massively parallel sequencing as a detection method (ChIP-seq) has become one of the primary methods for epigenomic researches, namely to investigate protein-DNA interaction on a genome-wide scale. This technique is now used in a variety of life sci... Learn more

  • Protein Analysis

    Proteins play a critical role in virtually all cell processes including metabolism, structure, growth, and repair. Understanding protein function, behavior, structure, and their importance are key aspects of understanding disease and therapeutics. Experimental analysis of proteins typically involves expression and purification or the direct extraction of proteins from cells or tissues for further downstream analysis such as ligand binding assays, mass spectrometry, or protein sequencing. Other protein analysis methods include detection methods such as BCA assays and Western blots or methods to understand protein-to-protein in... Learn more
