EZ DNA Methylation-Gold Kit
D5006 / D5005
- Complete bisulfite conversion of DNA in less than 3 hours.
- Desulphonation and recovery of bisulfite-treated DNA with a spin column.
- Recovered DNA is ideal for downstream analyses such as PCR, endonuclease digestion, sequencing, microarrays, etc.
|Applications||Purified, converted DNA is of high-quality and well-suited for downstream processes, including library preparation for Next-generation sequencing, PCR amplification, etc.|
|Elution Volume||≥ 10 µl|
|Equipment||Microcentrifuge and thermocycler with heated lid|
|Input||500 pg - 2 µg of DNA.|
|Processing Time||3 hours|
|Sample Source||Purified genomic DNA, endonuclease-digested DNA, linearized plasmid DNA, etc. DNA should be high-quality and RNA-free.|
Q1: Tips for bisulfite primer design?
Q2: Is an incubation with desulphonation buffer for longer than 20 minutes recommended?
Q3: Does bisulfite conversion only occur in a CpG context?
Q4: Which polymerase is recommended for amplification from bisulfite converted DNA?
Q5: What is the minimum DNA size that can be recovered?
Q6: How to quantify / visualize converted DNA?
Q7: What leads to poor conversion efficiency/ low yields?
Q8: How long is bisulfite converted DNA stable at -20 °C?
“It makes gene specific DNA methylation analysis very simple and anyone with modest technical background can easily perform the experiment using this kit.”

“This protocol allows for bisulfite conversion in about 3 hours. This fast conversion is particularly relevant to our experiments, which allows us to PCR amplify and clone the products in 1 day, saving time without loss of quality.”
