The EpiMark® line of products from New England Biolabs is designed to simplify DNA methylation and hydroxymethylation detection and analysis, as well as ChIP, histone and nucleosome analysis. This growing line of reagents and kits includes:
- EpiMark® Methylated DNA Enrichment Kit (NEB #E2600) to enrich double-stranded methyl-CpG from fragmented genomic DNA with as little as 5 ng of input DNA
- EpiMark® Bisulfite Conversion Kit (NEB #E3318) to detect methylated cytosine via the conversion of unmodified cytosines to uracil
- EpiMark® Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase (NEB #M0490) to amplifiy bisulfite-treated samples
- EpiMark® 5-mC and 5-hmC Analysis Kit (NEB #E3317) to identify and quantify 5-hydroxymethylcytosine at specific loci
- EpiMark® Nucleosome Assembly Kit (NEB #E5350) to prepare recombinant nucleosomes
- NEBNext® Ultra II DNA Library Prep Kit for Illumina® (NEB #E7645) to prepare Chromatin immunoprecipitated DNA samples for next-generation sequencing

If all cells are created from the same genetic material, why are there so many different cell types? Listen to Sriharsa Pradhan, Senior Scientist, RNA Biology at NEB, as he describes how DNA is methylated and how this affects the path of reading the DNA code the same way an obstruction would derail a train off its tracks.
