EpiTect Methyl II DNA Restriction Kit

Cat. # Product Description Size Price  
335452  EpiTect Methyl II DNA Restriction Kit (12) Up to 12 Samples

Description Brief Protocol Materials Included
 
The EpiTect Methyl II DNA Restriction Kit (12) prepares your genomic DNA samples for analysis by real-time PCR primers and arrays for known and predicted methylated CpG islands by real-time PCR. Using the enzymes and buffer provided in the kit, four digests are performed to detect different methylated DNA fractions. The product of a mock digest contains all of the input genomic DNA. The product of the methylation-sensitive restriction enzyme (Enzyme A) digest contains methylated DNA sequences, while the product of the methylation-dependent restriction enzyme (Enzyme B) digest contains unmethylated DNA sequences. The product of a double digest measures the background and the success of both enzymatic digestions. Use the EpiTect Methyl II DNA Restriction Kit (12) together with the Epitect Methyl II PCR Arrays and Custom PCR Primers to analyze the methylation status of CpG islands in the promoter of your genes or other methylated DNA sequences of interest.

For Experienced Users Only. First time users of the EpiTect II Methyl DNA Restriction Kit with the EpiTect Methyl II PCR Arrays should first refer to the User Manual.

  1. Thaw the 5X Digestion Buffer and dissolve any cotton-like precipitate by vortexing briefly.
  2. Dilute each genomic DNA sample into a DNase-free 1.5-mL tube using the appropriate recipe listed in the User Manual for the gene list and format of your chosen PCR Array.
  3. Mix well by vortexing, and briefly centrifuge to the bottom of the tube.
  4. Set up four digestion reactions in separate PCR tubes using the appropriate recipe listed in the User Manual for the gene list and format of your chosen PCR Array.
    NOTE: All four tubes must contain the same amount of genomic DNA.
  5. Pipette up and down to thoroughly, yet gently, mix the components. Spin tubes briefly in microcentrifuge.
  6. Incubate at 37 ºC for 6 hours in a thermal cycler.
  7. Inactivate the enzymes at 65 ºC for 20 minutes following the digestion.
  8. Store DNA digests at -20 ºC until used. Spin down before use.
