[…] ng cycle sequencing. Insert sequences were then aligned with reference sequences using ATGC Sequence Assembly Software (GENETYX Inc., Japan) and the methylation status of mtDNA was analysed using the QUMA programme. […]


MeCP2 mediated epigenetic regulation in senescent endothelial progenitor cells

PMCID: 5883541
PMID: 29615114

[…] final 72 °C for 10 min and sent for Sanger sequencing at Beckman Coulter Genomics. All oligonucleotides are listed in Additional file : Table S2. Methylation of the sequenced clones was analysed with QUMA [] and plotted with a custom made R script. […]


Epigenetic modulation of Fgf21 in the perinatal mouse liver ameliorates diet induced obesity in adulthood

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5809372
PMID: 29434210
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03038-w

[…] tors (#A1360, Promega, Madison, WI, USA), and more than 13 clones were sequenced per reaction. We used a web-based quantification tool for the bisulfite-sequencing analysis of CpG methylation (http://quma.cdb.riken.jp/). […]


Ribosome Incorporation into Somatic Cells Promotes Lineage Transdifferentiation towards Multipotency
