Amplification of plant genomic DNA by Phi29 DNA polymerase for use in physical mapping of the hypermethylated genomic region.

Plant genomes contain a heavily methylated region in which cytosines are methylated in both the symmetrical and asymmetrical sequences. The physical mapping of such a hypermethylated region is difficult because many restriction enzymes are sensitive to methylated cytosine residues in their recognition sites. The Phi29 DNA polymerase provides an efficient and representative amplification of the genomic DNA that is methylation-free. Using this amplified genomic DNA, we were able to show that a heavily methylated genomic DNA region becomes amenable to physical mapping with any restriction enzymes. This protocol will be especially useful for analysis of the heavily methylated region of plant genomes.
