Does this method with the EpiTect Methyl qPCR Array detect methylation at specific CpG dinucleotides?
No. This method examines the methylation status across a CpG-rich sequence. It is very convenient when quickly screening for changes in methylation status as well as for detecting new biomarkers. For confirming results obtained with the EpiTect Methyl qPCR system, and for determining the exact methylation levels of specific CpG sites, we recommend using a quantitative, sequence-based method such as bisulfite Pyrosequencing.
