General description

The Imprint® DNA Modification Kit contains all of the reagents necessary for complete bisulfite conversion and subsequent purification of DNA samples. DNA is chemically denatured to allow bisulfite reagent to react specifically with single-stranded DNA, thereby deaminating cytosine and creating a uracil residue. Converted DNA is suitable for a variety of downstream applications including Methylation-Specifc PCR, methylation sequencing, and pyrosequencing, as well as methylation microarray.


Imprint® DNA Modification Kit has been used for bisulfite modification of DNA.

Features and Benefits

  • Only 50 picograms of DNA or 20 cells are required
  • Procedure takes less than 2 hours
  • Greater than 99% conversion rate
  • Extremely low degradation
  • Option of convenient one-step protocol
  • Consistent and reproducible Bisulfite Modification
  • Can be used with genomic, endonuclease digested, and FFPE DNA

Storage and Stability

All components can be stored at room temperature. Each vial of DNA Modification Powder is sufficient for ten DNA modifications. Once dissolved, the solution can be stored at -20 °C for one week, kept away from light. Before use, the frozen solution must be thawed at room temperature and vortexed for two minutes.

Phosphoinositide-phospholipase C (PI-PLC) beta1 can be considered a specific target for demethylating therapy in high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients, as azacitidine treatment has been associated with a PI-PLCbeta1-specific promoter demethylation, and induction of PI-PLCbeta1 gene and protein expression.

DNA methylation plays a decisive role in the regulation and control of gene expression. DNA methylation is a covalent modification, in which a methyl group is attached to the 5th carbon of the cytosine ring of a CpG dinucleotide that


There are several common ways to determine whether a gene contains methylated DNA. Since mammalian methylation occurs at cytosines, researchers take advantage of the fact that methylated cytosine (meC) is stable to bisulfite treatment but unmethylated cytosine is transformed to uracil under the same conditions.
