Determination of methyltransferase activity
5-Aza-dCTP is a inhibitor of DNA methylation and an antileukemic agent. It has been used to reactivate silent tumor suppressor genes.
1.) Contains at least 10 mg product
2.) The triazine moiety of decitabine is prone to acid- and base-catalyzed decomposition. To assure highest quality standards, the compound will be freshly prepared for you and shipped as a solid. Due to the limited stability, the price is higher than for stable nucleotides which can be kept in stock. We strongly suggest always to prepare fresh solutions for immediate use. For this, neutral buffers and low temperatures are most appropriate.
