    Hydroxymethylated DNA IP (hMeDIP) using monoclonal antibody against 5-hmC
    An hydroxymethylated DNA IP (hMeDIP) was performed using the mouse monoclonal antibody directed against 5-hydroxymethylcytosine. The IgG isotype antibodies from mouse was used as negative control. The DNA was prepared with the GenDNA module of the hMeDIP kit and sonicated with our Bioruptor ® (UCD-200/300 series) to have DNA fragments of 300-500 bp. 1 μg of human Hela cells DNA were spiked with non-methylated, methylated, and hydroxymethylated PCR fragments. The IP’d material has been analysed by qPCR using the primer pair specific for the 3 different control sequences. The obtained results show that the mouse monoclonal for 5-hmC is highly specific for this base modification (no IP with non-methylated or methylated C bases containing fragments).

    Titer determination of anti-5hmC antibodies

    ELISA: To determine the titer, an ELISA was performed using a serial dilution of the mouse monoclonal antibody directed against 5-hmC in antigen coated wells. The antigen used was KHL coupled to 5-hmC base. By plotting the absorbance against the antibody dilution, the titer of the antibody was estimated to be 1:40 000.

    Dot blot using monoclonal anti 5-hmC antibodies

    Dot blot: using anty-5-hmC mouse monoclonal antibody with the C, mC and hmC PCR controls 200 to 2 ng (equivalent of 10 to 0.1 pmol of C-bases) of the hmC (1), mC (2) and C (3) PCR controls from the “5-hmC, 5-mC & cytosine DNA were spotted on a membrane (Amersham Hybond-N+). The membrane was incubated with 2 μg/ml of the mouse 5-hydroxymethylcytosine monoclonal antibody (dilution 1:500). The membranes were exposed for 30 seconds.
  • Additional Information
  • Additional information: Close structural similarity between 5-mC and 5-hmC makes them very difficult to expreimentally distinuish. Therefore affinity-based technology was employed to purify 5-hmC specific antibodies.

    This antibody is affinity purified and provided in PBS pH 7.4 with 0.05 % sodium azide.
  • Background
  • Background: 5-hmC | 5-hydroxymethylcytosine is a recently discovered DNA modification which results from the enzymatic conversion of 5-methylcytosine into 5-hydroxymethylcytosine by the TET family of oxygenases. It may have an important roles distinct from that of 5-methylcytosine (5-mC). 5-hmC bases have been identified in Purkinje neurons, in granule cells and embryonic stem cells where they are present at high levels (up to 0,6% of total nucleotides in Purkinje cells.
