What material should I send for the DNA methylation assay?
You can send purified DNA or frozen cells or tissues. If purified DNAs are sent, we ask that they be treated with RNase before the final concentrations are determined, and that 200-400 ng of each DNA be run on a 1% agarose gel to verify the DNA is of high molecular weight. If cells or tissues are sent, they should not be fixed. Simply freeze the tissue or cell pellets and Genpathway will extract the DNA.
