The Global DNA Methylation – LINE-1 Kit uses a unique hybridization approach to quantify global 5-mC levels that offers better specificity & reproducibility than methods utilizing non-specific passive adsorption.

The assay is uniquely designed to quantitate methylation in Long Interspersed Nucleotide Element 1 (LINE-1) repeats in human genomic DNA. Recent publications demonstrate that the methylation status of high copy number repeat elements such as LINE-1 can serve as a surrogate marker for global DNA methylation. Conventional methods HPLC and combined bisulfite restriction analysis (COBRA) and pyrosequencing of these elements all reveal a strong correlation with global 5-mC levels.


  • Simple to follow ELISA-based assay can be completed in 5 hours
  • Suitable for use with cell- or tissue-derived human genomic DNA
  • Highly sensitive, can detect a little as 0.5% methylation
  • Can detect 5-mC from as little as 10 ng of input DNA (recommended starting concentration is 100 ng/well)
  • LINE-1 probe is used for DNA hybridization rather than non-specific passive adsorption
  • Controls derived from human Jurkat genomic DNA are included as biologically relevant standards for quantitation of 5-mC
