Global DNA 5hmC Measurement Services for Aging Research


5-Hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) is an epigenetic marker essential for gene regulation, and its alterations have been linked with various age-related diseases, such as neurodegenerative disorders and cancer. In contrast to 5-methylcytosine (5mC), the content of 5hmC is much lower in adult mammals. The distribution of 5hmC is variable, tissue-specific, and non-random, which directly influences the equilibrium of DNA methylation in normal physiological activities. By quantifying global DNA 5hmC levels, researchers can gain insights into the epigenetic changes associated with aging and age-related diseases. CD BioSciences offers global DNA 5hmC measurement services for aging studies, providing valuable insights into epigenetic modifications that occur with age.

Cells 0.2-1 M
Tissues 5 mg

Our Global DNA 5hmC Measurement Services in Aging Studies

Global DNA 5hmC profiling

Our services provide a comprehensive analysis of 5hmC levels throughout the genome. By examining the distribution and abundance of 5hmC marks, our clients can gain insights into the epigenetic changes associated with aging and age-related diseases.

Aging-related epigenetic analysis

Our services compare 5hmC profiles across different age groups and monitor 5hmC levels with the same objectives over an extended period. By examining how 5hmC patterns change with age, our clients can identify age-related epigenetic signatures and potential biomarkers of aging. By repeatedly measuring 5hmC at multiple time points, our clients can assess how epigenetic patterns change over time and gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics of aging.

Biomarker discovery

Our services help clients identify specific genomic regions or combinations of 5hmC marks that show strong associations with chronological age. These biomarkers can be further validated and explored for their utility in predicting biological age or assessing age-related health outcomes.

Our Global DNA 5hmC Measurement Methods

CD BioSciences employs multifaceted techniques for global DNA 5hmC measurement, offering highly sensitive and specific assays to measure 5hmC levels in diverse sample types quantitatively. Our methods include next-generation sequencing methods, LC-MS-based approaches, ELISA-based assays, and colorimetric assays. Our methods enable the reliable quantification of global DNA 5hmC, empowering clients to make robust interpretations of age-related epigenetic modifications.
