Swift anuncia método de preparação de biblioteca de sequenciamento de metilação de célula única do mais alto rendimento

2017-08-10

A metilação é um biomarcador estável que pode ser usado para identificar tipos de células e elementos reguladores que sustentam a função celular. Quando associada a estudos de expressão do RNA de célula única, a metilação da célula única pode elucidar os elementos reguladores, controlando sucessivamente os perfis de expressão única de células individuais e diferenças entre células. Adicionalmente, estudos clínicos recentes revelaram padrões de metilação em doenças — tais como o câncer — que identificam o tipo de tumor, avaliam a carga do tumor em biópsias líquidas e correlacionam com a progressão da doença, o prognóstico e a resposta a medicamentos. Esse método foi descrito recentemente em um documento da Science intitulado “Single Cell Methylomes Identify Neuronal Subtypes and Regulatory Elements in Mammalian Cortex”...
