Immunoprecipitation of methylated DNA; PCR; Sequencing


  • Robust enrichment & immunoprecipitation of DNA containing 5mC.
  • Includes a highly specific anti-5-methylcytosine monoclonal antibody for defined, reproducible results.
  • Eluted, ultra-pure DNA is ideal for use in subsequent molecular-based analyses (e.g., assembling genomic libraries and determining genome-wide methylation status).

The Methylated-DNA IP Kit is designed for enrichment of 5mC-containing DNA from any pool of fragmented genomic DNA for use in genome-wide methylation analysis. It features a highly specific Anti-5-Methylcytosine Monoclonal Antibody for the immunoprecipitation of methylated DNA in only a few hours. This kit is capable of achieving over one hundred-fold enrichment of methylated DNA vs. non-methylated DNA. Recovered DNA is suitable for many downstream applications to analyze genome-wide DNA methylation including PCR, bisulfite treatment, whole-genome amplification, ultra-deep sequencing, and microarray. Control DNA and primers are included to monitor the success of the assay.

Applicable For Immunoprecipitation of methylated DNA, PCR, sequencing, microarrays, etc.
Elution Volume ≥ 15 µl
Input 50 - 500 ng of DNA
Processing Time 4 hours

Methylated DNA was enriched from paired-end libraries generated by the authors using the Methylated-DNA IP Kit from Zymo Research and then sequenced using the Illumina HiSeq. The results showed that MeDIP-Seq detected twice as many differentially methylated regions than the Illumina 450k array method.

Researchers used the Methylated DNA IP Kit from Zymo Research to immunoprecipitate methylated DNA from leaf tissue and study the DNA methylation profile in the maize genome. The authors found that specific families of retrotransposons could spread heterochromatin to neighboring genes and epigenetically suppress their expression.

The Methylated-DNA IP Kit was used for CpG immunoprecipitation of genomic DNA isolated from T cells that was sheared to ~200 bp using dsDNA Shearase Plus (E2018) to study the DNA methylation status of the Notch-1 promoter.
