Dataset link Reporter Gene Silencing in Targeted Mouse Mutants is Associated with Promoter CpG Island Methylation

Experimental Protocol

Examination of CpG methylation profiles in Knock-out and wild type mice We evaluated targeted gene promoter silencing in a group of six mutants carrying the tm1a Knockout Mouse Project allele containing both a LacZ reporter gene driven by the native promoter and a neo selection cassette. Methylation of the promoter CpG islands and LacZ coding sequence were evaluated by sequencing of bisulfite-treated DNA. CpG Islands (samples labeled as CpG) and trans gene (samples labeled as LacZ) were amplified after Bisulfite treatment. Please note that the same gDNA was used to amplify CpG Island (Gene_CpG_KO ) and LacZ (Gene_LacZ_KO) reporter for the same gene. PCR product of amplification was gel separated, isolated and pooled. After libraries were prepared and sequenced, the alignment was performed. CpG island and LacZ alignments were done separately resulting in three different Processed Data files per gene investigated: Gene_CpG_KO, Gene_LacZ_KO and Gene_CpG_WT. LacZ reference is included in the submission, but is also available for download from KOMP Phenotype website ( Also please note that the libraries were prepared using Illumina TruSeq RNA Sample Prep Kit starting from adapter binding step as samples were double stranded Bisulfite treated DNA amplicons. So the library preparation was done as with RNASeq, but samples investigated were bisulfite treated.
