DNA methylation profiling Gene specific profiling - HeLa MEG3

The estimation of DNA methylation level heavily depends on the complete conversion of non-methylated DNA cytosines. It is crucial to ensure complete conversion of non-methylated cytosines in DNA. Therefore, it is important to incorporate controls for bisulfite reactions, as well as to pay attention to the appearance of cytosines in non-CpG sites after sequencing, which is an indicator of incomplete conversion.

How can I preserve leukocytes for DNA methylation profiling?

I would like to preserve leukocytes for future epigenetic analysis. How can I preserve them effectively in order to perform DNA methylation profiling at a later time?

Upstream tips
For best results, the CT Conversion Reagent should be prepared freshly and used immediately following preparation.
Protocol tips
Always include fully methylated (in-vitro methylated DNA) and non-methylated controls (Leucocyte DNA, DNMT1/3 double KO DNA) during MSP
