  • Negative control for epigenetic experiments requiring DNA containing zero background levels of cytosine and adenosine methylation. Substrate for DNA methylation-sensitive restriction enzyme digestions.

E. coli non-methylated genomic DNA is from a Dam- and Dcm- strain (ER2925) of E. coli. It works perfectly as a negative control for DNA methylation analyses requiring DNA with absolutely no methylation.

Concentration 250 ng/µl in TE buffer (10 mM Tris-HCl, 1 mM EDTA, pH 8.0)

Supplemental Info

During NGS library prep, this standard can be spiked in to or run in parallel with experimental samples to monitor bisulfite conversion efficiency and/or workflow performance.

The reference genome of E. coli strain K-12 substrain MG1655 can be used for alignment and analysis. It can be accessed here.
