Louis, MO) received a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a key patent application that covers Orion's MethylScope technology, a broad approach to discovering and quantifying the DNA methylation
status on each and every gene in the human genome.
Under the collaboration, scientists at Orion and the University of Glasgow will use Orion's methylation
technologies to identify biomarkers useful in the detection and treatment of cancers of the lung, breast and ovaries.
An Austrian research team found that by testing stool samples for changes in DNA methylation
, which is a form of genetic alteration common in colorectal cancer cells, they were able to identify colorectal cancer about 90 percent of the time.

Washington, Dec 12 ( ANI ): Researchers, who are trying to understand the biology of the malaria parasite, have discovered a potential weakness- low levels of DNA methylation
in Plasmodium's genome "that may be critical to the survival of the parasite.
of DNA occurs on cytosines and can be transmitted over many cell generations to sustain epigenetic memory.
Previous research studies have suggested that exposure to heavy metal toxicants can influence a person's global DNA methylation
The most frequently examined epigenetic mechanism is called DNA methylation
because it involves methylation
of cytosine in CpG (cytosine-phosphate-guanine) pairs.
