Illumina Infinium MethylationEPIC array BeadChip (850K) service

default alt

The Infinium MethylationEPIC Array is a genome-wide DNA methylation analysis technique based on bisulfite conversion and Illumina® technology. It allows to quantitatively detect the methylation level of over 850,000 human CpG positions throughout the genome with single nucleotide resolution.  

Briefly, upon treatment with bisulfite, unmethylated cytosine bases are converted to uracil, while methylated cytosine bases remain unchanged. Infinium HD array technology interrogates these differentiated loci using site-specific probes (designed for the methylated and unmethylated sites respectively). The level of methylation for the interrogated locus can be determined by calculating the ratio of the fluorescent signals from the methylated vs. unmethylated sites.

    Integrative network analysis of differentially methylated regions to study the impact of gestational weight gain on maternal metabolism and fetal-neonatal growth
    Argentato P.P. et al.
    Integrative network analysis (INA) is important for identifying gene modules or epigenetically regulated molecular pathways in diseases. This study evaluated the effect of excessive gestational weight gain (EGWG) on INA of differentially methylated regions, maternal metabolism and offspring growth. Brazilian women f...

    Making Biological Ageing Clocks Personal
    Pusparum M. et al.
    Background Age is the most important risk factor for the majority of human diseases. Addressing the impact of age-related diseases has become a priority in healthcare practice, leading to the exploration of innovative approaches, including the development of predictors to estimate biological age (so-called &l...

    Inhibition of Aurora kinase induces endogenous retroelements to induce a type I/III interferon response via RIG-I
    Choy L. et al.
    Type I interferon signaling is a crucial component of anti-viral immunity that has been linked to promoting the efficacy of some chemotherapeutic drugs. We developed a reporter system in HCT116 cells that detects activation of the endogenous IFI27 locus, an interferon (IFN) target gene. We screened a library of anno...

    Association of DNA methylation signatures with premature ageing andcardiovascular death in patients with end-stage kidney disease: a pilotepigenome-wide association study.
    Sumida K. et al.
    Patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) display features of premature aging. There is strong evidence that changes in DNA methylation (DNAm) contribute to age-related pathologies; however, little is known about their association with premature aging and cardiovascular mortality in patients with ESKD. We assaye...

    Perturbed epigenetic transcriptional regulation in AML with IDHmutations causes increased susceptibility to NK cells.
    Palau A. et al.
    Isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) mutations are found in 20\% of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients. However, only 30-40\% of the patients respond to IDH inhibitors (IDHi). We aimed to identify a molecular vulnerability to tailor novel therapies for AML patients with IDH mutations. We characterized the transcription...

    In skeletal muscle and neural crest cells, SMCHD1 regulates biologicalpathways relevant for Bosma syndrome and facioscapulohumeral dystrophyphenotype.
    Laberthonnière C. et al.
    Many genetic syndromes are linked to mutations in genes encoding factors that guide chromatin organization. Among them, several distinct rare genetic diseases are linked to mutations in SMCHD1 that encodes the structural maintenance of chromosomes flexible hinge domain containing 1 chromatin-associated factor. In hu...

    Garau J. et al.
    Aicardi-Goutières Syndrome (AGS) is a rare neuro-inflammatory disease characterized by increased expression of interferon-stimulated genes (ISGs). Disease-causing mutations are present in genes associated with innate antiviral responses. Disease presentation and severity vary, even between patients with ident...

    DNA methylation aberrancy is a reliable prognostic tool in uveal melanoma
    Soltysova A. et al.
    Despite outstanding advances in understanding the genetic background of uveal melanoma (UM) development and prognosis, the role of DNA methylation reprogramming remains elusive. This study aims to clarify the extent of DNA methylation deregulation in the context of gene expression changes and its utility as a reliab...

    Decitabine increases neoantigen and cancer testis antigen expression toenhance T cell-mediated toxicity against glioblastoma.
