Summary "Since methylation is now understood to be integral to DNA replication and transcription, with abnormalities frequently found to occur during tumorigenesis, the number of breakthrough techniques for methylation's study has sharply increased. In 'DNA methylation protocols', an internationally well-recognized panel of investigators offer a set of readily reproducible protocols for the analysis of DNA methylation and methylases. These powerful methods provide the tools necessary for studying methylation at both the global level and the level of sequence, and include many techniques for identifying genes that might be aberrantly methylated in cancer and aging. Additional methods cover genome-wide analysis of abnormal DNA methylation, and the isolation and measurement of demethylases and related proteins. Each technique is described by a hands-on master, and includes a concise summary of the basic theory, a complete materials list, step-by-step instructions for its successful execution, and helpful notes on avoiding pitfalls." -- Provided by publisher
