mouse unmethylated DNA control - (Feb/14/2007 )


I want to research DNA methylation status in mouse cancer model.
So, I need to get the mouse genomic DNA as a unmethylated DNA control.
But, I can't find any company to buy it.

Where can I get it from?

Thank you.

You can use the Whole genome amplification Kit (Qiagen) to amplify the whole DNA. The amplified DNA is virtually free of methylation. If it is just a fragment (e.g. promoter) that you are interested in, you can amplify it by a conventional PCR. Your amplicon is free of methylation.

Good luck with methy-mice wink.gif



Thank you.

I'll try it.
