Telomeric Chromatin Analysis Services


As with other regions of the genome, chromatin composition at the telomere regulates structure, which in turn defines function. Similar to the telomeres of other eukaryotes, mammalian telomeres carry marks of heterochromatin. Alterations in this underlying epigenetic code can have effects on telomere replication and recombination. Research is beginning to emerge that aims to determine the links between changes in telomeric chromatin and their possible roles in aging and disease.

Telomeric Chromatin Analysis Services

CD BioSciences offers comprehensive services for analyzing the chromatin structure of telomeres. Our expertise encompasses the assessment of these structures to understand their alterations as cells age, utilizing advanced technologies to delineate the intricate relationship between telomere and longevity.

Overview of Our Telomere Chromatin Analysis Services

Structural analysis of telomeric chromatin

We can characterize the organization of telomeric chromatin by negative staining electron microscopy, magnetic tweezers, and single-particle cryo-electron microscopy. Our methodologies provide valuable insights into the structural arrangement and dynamics of telomeric chromatin, contributing to the understanding of aging-related changes at the molecular level.

Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP-seq)

Our ChIP-seq services allow for the genome-wide mapping of telomere-associated proteins and histone modifications, offering a comprehensive view of telomere biology and dynamics within the genome.

Workflow of Telomere Chromatin Analysis in Aging Studies

  • Sample collection
    We start by collecting biological samples such as blood, tissue, or cultured cells from participants of different age groups. It's important to have samples from both young and old individuals for comparative analysis.
  • Telomere chromatin analysis
    We examine the architecture and behavior of telomeric chromatin, including the distribution, length, and structure of nucleosomes. Additionally, we conduct ChIP assays to determine the chromatin state of telomeres. This involves cross-linking DNA and associated proteins, shearing the DNA, and immunoprecipitating protein complexes using antibodies against histone modifications or telomere-binding proteins.
  • Correlation studies and data analysis
    We analyze the ChIP-seq data to understand the epigenetic landscape of telomeres in different age groups and correlate it with telomere chromatin status to comprehend changes in chromatin organization in relation to telomere shortening and aging.

Our Service Features
