Description

General description

Methylation of cytosines located 5′ to guanosine is known to have a profound effect on the expression of several eukaryotic genes (Bird, 1992 ). In normal cells, methylation occurs predominantly in CG-poor regions, while CG-rich areas, called CpG islands, remain unmethylated. Aberrant methylation of normally unmethylated CpG islands has been documented as a relatively frequent event in immortalized and transformed cells (Antequera, 1990) and has been associated with transcriptional inactivation of defined tumor suppressor genes in human cancers (Merlo, 1995). Aberrant methylation of H19-IGF2 locus is implicated in several inherited genetic disorders.



Methylation-specific PCR (MSP) is a new technology for sensitive detection of abnormal gene methylation utilizing small amounts of DNA (Herman, 1996 ). This process employs an initial bisulfite reaction to modify the DNA, followed by PCR amplification with specific primers designed to distinguish methylated from unmethylated DNA.

Application

Principles of the Technique

Use of either the CpGenome DNA Modification Kit (Cat. No. S7820) or the CpGENOME Fast DNA Modification Kit (Cat. No. S7824) facilitates the initial bisulfite reactions, while the CpG WIZ H19-IGF2 Amplification Kit contains the reagents required for the gene-specific PCR amplification reactions.

The components of the CpG WIZ H19-IGF2 Amplification Kit include those required for PCR amplification after bisulfite modification of DNA samples.
