Mammalian cells repair DNA double-strand breaks by illegitimate end-joining or by homologous recombination. We investigated the effects of restriction enzymes on illegitimate and homologous DNA integration in mammalian cells. A plasmid containing the neo(R) expression cassette, which confers G418 resistance...

The properties and sources of all known class-I, class-II and class-III restriction endonucleases (ENases) and DNA modification methyltransferases (MTases) are listed and newly subclassified according to their sequence specificity. In addition, the enzymes are distinguished in a novel manner according...

Genome wide analysis of DNA methylation provides important information in a variety of diseases, including cancer. Here, we describe a simple method, Digital Restriction Enzyme Analysis of Methylation (DREAM), based on next generation sequencing analysis of methylation-specific signatures created by...
