A novel method for the detection of MRM products by the identification of bone marrow specific DNA modifications - AN0657

Objective
To develop a novel system for the detection of bone marrow which is an indicator of the mechanical recovery process and establish feasibility of the fundamental approach. 1. Develop a control assay system. 2. Identify genes which are expressed differentially in bone marrow and muscle under the control of promoter methylation. 3. Design a PCR which is specific to the original methylation state of the promoter of the selected gene.
