To perform a genome-wide analysis of DNA methylation in CLL, we applied the Reduced Representation Bisulfite Sequencing (RRBS) to CD19+ B-cells isolated from normal control and CLL peripheral blood samples. The genomic DNA from each sample was digested with the methylation-insensitive restriction enzyme MspI (restriction site, CCGG) and ligated to Illumina sequencing adaptors containing methylated cytosine residues. The ligated MspI fragments were size-selected, treated with sodium bisulfite, and amplified by PCR. The PCR products were purified and sequenced using Illumina GAIIx sequencer with a read length of 52 or 76bp. 11 CLL B-cell samples, 3 normal control samples including one each of normal CD19+, CD19+/ IgD+ naïve, and CD19+/CD27+ memory B-cell sample and three CLL cell lines (Mec-1, Mec-2, and Wac-3) were used. We generated 20-30 million Illumina sequencing reads for each sample.
