Global DNA methylation
DNA was extracted from cultured cells by standard methods (DNeasy system, Qiagen). For the measurement of global DNA methylation levels, 5-methyl-2′-deoxycytidine (5mdC) and 2′-deoxyguanosine (dG) were determined by an HPLC-based method.84 Normalized 5mdC levels were calculated as percentage 5mdC/dG. When indicated, global DNA methylation was measured by the MethylFlash system (Epigentek). The assay yielded 5mdC values as percentage of PicoGreen-quantified input DNA (wt/wt). Each value was multiplied by 4 to obtain a final value comparable to that obtained by the HPLC-based method. The MethylFlash assay yielded responses to AA and OA in THP-1 monocytes, that were consistent with the ones obtained by the HPLC-based 5mdC quantitation, except for baseline (unstimulated cells) values that were 5% lower (P>0 0.05, data corresponding to a total of 15 and 21 experiments, respectively).

About nuclease-free water in DNA quantification

Hi everyone! I have a question about DNA quantification. Do I need to use nuclease-free water for DNA quantification and are there any repercussions if I don’t use any?
