New Kit Available to Study RNA Methylation

RNA methylation kitWhile the presence of 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) in RNA has been known for some time, the lack of methods available to study this epigenetic modification has made it challenging to elucidate its function. However, the new EZ RNA Methylation Kit from Zymo Research changes everything.  The EZ RNA Methylation Kit is the first commercially available product specifically designed and optimized for bisulfite conversion of RNA. This one-of-a-kind kit facilitates simple, sequence-specific methylation analysis in all RNA molecules to aid researchers in discovering the functions of RNA methylation.  Recent studies investigating the role(s) of RNA methylation in molecular biology are demonstrating that post-transcriptional modifications to RNA have the potential to dramatically influence the epigenetic landscape and to redefine the field of epigenetics.  It is time to determine how RNA methylation impacts your research project!
