5-hmC Glucosyltransferase

5-hmC detection; 5-hmC enrichment


  • 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.


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.

Technical Specifications
