The 5-hmC Glucosyltransferase is a highly active enzyme that specifically tags 5-hydroxymethylcytosine in DNA with a glucose moiety to yield glucosyl-5-hydroxymethylcytosine, which in turn can be used for sequence-specific, genome-wide, or global 5-hmC detection. Highly processive enzyme for specific modification of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) with a glucose moiety. Ideal for locus specific and global quantification of hydroxymethylated DNA.Concentration: 2 U/μl Standard Reaction Time: 2 hours Storage: 5-hmC Glucosyltransferase at -20°C.
