DNA Methylation sites in c-Fos promoter

Normal Rat Liver, From Shimizu et al., Cancer Sci 2007; 98: 1318–1322

Approximate MW:

38,337 daltons (unmethylated)

38,252 daltons (methylated)

each methylation site causes 15 dalton decrease in MW 

Rat c-fos Primers used by Alcala and Houpt

Primers designed with Primer 3 using the 300 bases upstream of c-Fos transcription start based on gi|62750806|ref|NC_005105.2|NC_005105 (equivalent to bases 172-471 of U02631, which claims start of 5’UTR is at 455.)

Forward at -261 (cFosSense-261):


Reverse at -6 (cFosAS-6):


Product size: 256 bp
