EpiTect Methyl II PCR Assays are a simple and reliable method for quickly detecting the DNA methylation status of the CpG islands associated with individual genes, using MethylScreen™ technology. QIAGEN has developed cataloged EpiTect Methyl II PCR Primers for analyzing any human, mouse, or rat promoter CpG island.

Primer Design Principles
Cataloged EpiTect Methyl II PCR Primers are available for more than 37,000 promoter CpG islands, annotated based on the combination of UCSC genome bioinformatics predictions and the CpG islands with published evidence. Each EpiTect Methyl II PCR primer assay corresponds to one distinct CpG island in a promoter region, defined as from 5 kb upstream to 3 kb downstream of transcription start site (TSS). All EpiTect Methyl II PCR primers are first designed by a rigorously optimized computer algorithm that accounts for the GC-rich sequences in genomic DNA and particularly in CpG islands. The design algorithm also insures that every amplicon contains sufficient cutting sites for both methyl-sensitive and methyl-dependent enzymes to maximize methylation detection sensitivity.
