This 5-methylcytidine (5meC or 5-MeCyd) antibody
is a commonly use reference in epigenetic research that allows to detect methylation of cytidines. DNA methylation is a DNA modification process, which is involved in the control of gene expression, which leads to genes being silenced or enhanced in their expression having pre-recursions for a large variety of disorders. Recently, this part of genetics has become a vibrant research area that spans various fields of molecular biology and genetics. The importance of epigenetics lies in the fact that it has a great impact on the phenotype despite identical genotypes.
