During specific pathological, environmental, or developmental states, global DNA methylation levels can be altered in the genome. DNA hypomethylation or hypermethylation has been used as a molecular marker in numerous biological processes, including cancer. Therefore, the accurate measurement of total 5-mC levels can help epigenetic researchers to better understand the role DNA methylation plays in biological processes and the disruption of such processes.
Using an ELISA-based assay, EpiGentek’s proprietary Global 5-mC Quantification service quantifies global DNA methylation by specifically measuring 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) levels with highly accurate, reliable results. Measuring global DNA methylation status is useful for identifying the distribution of this base (5-mC) in different cell types and various areas of the genome.
