Am J Transl Res. Alternatively, high-molarity, high-temperature protocols have been developed by Hayatsu and co-workers [22][23][24][32]. Another critical parameter is the stability of bisulfite solutions.

Free-circulating methylated SEPT9 gene copies in plasma as a screening biomarker for colorectal cancer were recently validated in a large observational prospective screening trial including more than 7, asymptomatic subjects [10].

Phys Chem Chem Phys. Conventional bisulfite conversion protocols require hours of exposure to low-molarity, low-temperature bisulfite. Insufficient lysis will not only lead to low DNA yields but will also cause bisulfite artefacts, i. Middle and right panel: Accordingly, these kits are of particular usability when samples are processed which are expected to contain only minute DNA amounts, i. Each kit was tested in nine replicates. The availability of kits and hisulfite to measure DNA methylation kti these sample types is mandatory to open this research area to a wide group of researchers.

The most significant performance differences between the kits were found when applying sections from FFPE tissues directly without prior DNA extraction.

The MGMT promoter methylation status has become a parameter for stratification of patients with glioma within several clinical trials [4]. The choice of an appropriate kit for a specific application should be based on the specific performance requirements with regard to the respective sample material. In this study, the performance of nine kits was evaluated: The CFP assay was used to quantify the specific conversion of bisukfite to uracil.


Accordingly, the availability of labor and the necessity to obtain quick results might influence the choice of a suitable kit. Hayatsu H The kiit genomic sequencing used in the analysis of epigenetic states, a technique in the emerging environmental genotoxicology research.

The DNA was extracted from FFPE placental tissue and fresh placental tissue by means of klt K lysis and subsequent phenol-chloroform extraction. The CFF assay targets a locus containing no cytosines within the sense strand.

A few DNA methylation biomarkers are already on the road to clinical use for predictive, diagnostic and screening purposes. To investigate the DNA stability a storage experiment was performed.

The specific conversion of cytosines to uracils at two different genetic loci were analyzed by means of the Epitech clone sequencing assay. Received Jan 17; Accepted Mar 8.

Inappropriate Conversion of Methylated Cytosines to Thymines. Nucleic Acids Symp Ser Oxf. Basic principle of the CFP clone sequencing assay for quantifying the bisulfite conversion efficiency of the bisulfite kits. In brief, bisulfite reacts with cytosines in a single stranded DNA molecule through the formation of a 5,6-dihydrocytosinesulfonate intermediate preferably at acidic pH around pH 5. Shown are mean values of triplicate PCR measurements.

However, the yield of DNA in plasma and serum are in line with concentrations described in the literature with serum showing higher yields as compared to plasma [38][39][40]. These figures are in concordance with a previous study, epiitect reported inappropriate conversion rates between 0. Yield of bisulfite-converted DNA obtained from fresh homogenized placental tissue 0. The bisulfite conversion was carried out using nine different kits.

Correlation between conversion efficiency and inappropriate conversion was tested using Pearson correlation.

Direct input of blood plasma and serum. Several kits for bisulfite conversion of DNA are commercially available each showing advantages and disadvantages. Open in a separate window. Dimo Dietrich is co-inventor and owns patents on methylation biomarkers and related technologies. Discussion Several kits for bisulfite conversion of DNA are commercially available each showing advantages and disadvantages.

The analytical performance of the assay was characterized by measuring mixtures of methylated and unmethylated DNA Figure 3. The methods for measuring bisulfite conversion reaction rates as described herein might be used in the future to identify the optimal reaction conditions allowing for sufficient conversion of ikt but leading to only limited inappropriate conversion of methylated cytosines.

However, appropriate adaptions to the single protocols epitet incubation temperature, higher bisulfite concentration, prolonged incubation time will allow increasing the conversion efficiency at the expense of higher inappropriate conversion. These sample types each represent their specific technological challenges, i.

Direct input of FFPE tissue, cell lines, fresh tissues and aspirates.

Introduction DNA methylation of cytosines within the CpG dinucleotide context is an epigenetic mechanism, which plays an important role in biological processes, such as cell differentiation and development [1].

Accordingly, these eluates could be used to quantify the inhibitory effect of impurities derived from the different kit protocols.
