DNA 6mA Sequencing Service

Inquiry      >

The most common DNA alteration in prokaryotes, but rare in eukaryotes, is DNA N6-methyladenine (6mA). Only specific unicellular eukaryotic organisms. Research has indicated the existence of 6mA from the newest advancements of highly sensitive identification techniques. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) offers another useful weapon to obtain essential genome-wide allocation details for these DNA adjustments in addition to advanced mass spectrometry that can efficiently evaluate the number of DNA modifications.  For sequencing research, 6mA specific antibodies have been employed to identify and enhance 6mA-containing DNA fragments. By combining immunoprecipitation (IP) with NGS, 6mA can be assessed. But a quantitative template at single-base resolution with data on the alteration proportion is more beneficial. For the sequencing of methylated adenines, a bisulfite-treatment equivalent of a deamination strategy has yet to be improved. Although single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing can differentiate 6mA from A and has been effectively implemented to small-genome prokaryotes, the significantly higher cost and reduced throughput have barred its broad usage in a much bigger genome eukaryotic lifeform.

Introduction to Our Microbial DNA 6mA Sequencing Platform

Long-read sequencing has made a major contribution to the identification of the 6mA genome-wide allocation and can accomplish single-nucleotide resolution. Since the absolute 6mA abundance is considerably lower, adequate coverage greater than 100x is essential. SMRT sequencing enables the direct identification of altered nucleotides, such as 6mA, 5mC, and 5-hydroxymethylcytosine, in the DNA framework and does not significantly impair main DNA sequence determination. Using RS Modification and Motif Analysis, base adjustments (6mA) are defined.

From the current methods employed to identify adenosine methylation in RNA, 6mA DNA immunoprecipitation accompanied by deep sequencing (6mA DIP-Seq) has been established. We formed and incorporated this procedure for 6mA identification in DNA. In this procedure, with an antibody that identifies 6mA in genomic DNA, genomic DNA is extracted, fragmented and then DNA involving 6mA is brought down. DNA fragments that do not encompass 6mA are removed after subsequent washing and the 6mA comprising fragments are separated from the antibody to be further analyzed for subsequent analysis.
