Product Overview

Please see the Methylamp DNA Capture Kit if you are working with purified DNA as the starting material. 

The EpiQuik™ Methylated DNA Immunoprecipitation (MeDIP) Kit is a complete set of essential components which uses a proprietary and unique procedure/composition to enrich methylated DNA from cells. In the assay, an antibody specific to methyl cytosine is used to immunoprecipitate methylated genomic DNA. The immunoprecipitated methylated fractions can be then used for a standard DNA detection. The kit is suitable for combining the specificity of methylated DNA immunoprecipitation with qualitative and quantitative PCR, and southern blot as well as DNA microarray. The kit has the following advantages:

  • Directly immunoprecipitate the methylated fractions of DNA from cell lysates.
  • Highly efficient enrichment of methylated DNA: > 95%.
  • Strip microplate format allows manual or high throughput.
  • Conveniently includes columns for DNA purification in order to save time and reduce labor.
  • Compatible with all DNA amplification-based approaches.
  • Achieves very reliable and consistent assay conditions.

Principle & Procedure
The EpiQuik™ Methylated DNA Immunoprecipitation (MeDIP) Kit contains all reagents required for carrying out a successful methylated DNA immunoprecipitation directly from mammalian cells. Particularly, this kit includes a ChIP-grade 5-methylcytosine antibody and a negative control normal mouse IgG. DNA in the cells is extracted, sheared, and added into the microwell immobilized with the antibody. DNA is released from the antibody-DNA complex, and purified through the specifically designed Fast-Spin Column. Eluted DNA can be used for various down-stream applications.

Frequently Asked Q's

1. What is the difference between the Methylamp Methylated DNA Capture Kit (#P-1015) and the EpiQuik Methylated DNA Immunoprecipitation Kit (#P-2019)?
The Methylamp Methylated DNA Capture Kit is for purified DNA as the starting materials while the EpiQuik Methylated DNA Immunoprecipitation Kit is for nuclear extract as the starting materials. Also, kit P-2019 is specifically designed for immunoprecipitating meDNA fraction directly from cells. The main advantage of P-2019/2020 is that no pre-isolation/purification of DNA is required if mammalian cells/tissues are used.

2. If I am using kit P-2019 starting with purified DNA rather than cells, do I have to modify any steps in the protocol?
When using kit P-2019, purified DNA cannot be used as starting material. The washing buffer, lysis buffer, and reversing buffer in the kit are not suitable for purified DNA.

3. How can I enrich 200 ng of mDNA, as required for a microarray?
Pool the IPed mDNA from 10-20 wells and then purify the mDNA with 5-10 columns (2 wells/each column). It is also useful to generate sufficient DNA for a microarray by amplifying IP’ed mDNA using whole genome amplification (WGA).

4. On page 10 of the user guide, does the "input" vial need to add 150 µl CP7 as the samples do?
Yes, CP7 should also be added into the "input" vial for DNA binding to the column.
