Highly sensitive DNA methylation analysis at CpG resolution by surface-enhanced Raman scattering via ligase chain reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

Sensitive and accurate DNA methylation analysis at CpG resolution was demonstrated using surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) via ligase chain reaction (LCR). The method was sensitive to 10% changes in methylation and the accuracy of methylation estimates in cells and serum DNA validated with sequencing. The LCR/SERS approach may have broad applications as an alternative (epi)genetic detection method.
