RNAs can be modified post-transcriptionally with dynamic and reversible modifications such as N6-methyladenosine (m6A). RNA methylation dynamically regulates the processing, export, translation, and stability of RNA molecules, thereby affecting biological and pathological processes such as differentiation and cellular response to stress and tumorigenesis. Epitranscriptomics refers to the field that studies RNA modifications. The majority of RNA modifications involve the addition of a methyl group to certain positions on the RNA such as m6A, N1-methyladenosine (m1A), 5-methylcytosine (m5C) and 2'-O-methylation. Sometimes, acetylation also occurs on RNA molecules. Next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based methods, either relying on antibody enrichment or third-generation sequencing, have been developed to map post-transcriptional RNA modification and explore their functions, We provide a full range of epitranscriptomics services to investigate RNA modifications using NGS or long-read sequencing (Oxford nanopore sequencing and PacBio SMRT sequencing). We can help you detect many forms of RNA modifications including m7G, m3C, m1A, 5mC, 5hmC, m6A, m6Am, acetylation, and 2'-O-methylation.

Explore how our epitranscriptomics services help researchers map RNA modifications and explore their pathways.
N7-methylguanosine (m7G) is an essential modification at the 5' cap of eukaryotic mRNA. We provide m7G-MeRIP sequencing to map m7G and reveal its distribution features.
We provide a deep sequencing-based service for the simultaneous profiling of 7-methylguanosine (m7G) and 3-methylcytidine (m3C) in RNA at single nucleotide resolution.
m1A has been found in total RNA, rRNA, and tRNA. We provide m1A-seq service to reveal the presence and functions of m1A in RNA.
Cytosines can be methylated in the form of 5mC (m5C) and subsequently oxidized to generate 5hmC. We provide RNA BS-seq, m5C-RIP-seq, hMeRIP-seq, and miCLIP-m5C for profiling 5mC, or 5hmC, or both.
We provide miCLIP-m6A, MeRIP-seq/m6A-seq, and PA-m6A-seq for mapping N6-methyladenosine (m6A) / N6, 2'-O-dimethyladenosine (m6Am) at single-nucleotide resolution.
acRIP-Seq can be used to depict a transcriptome-wide map of N4-acetylcytidine (ac4C) and reveal its roles in RNA stability, alternative splicing, gene expression regulation, and protein synthesis.
2'-O-methylation is a common RNA modification, mostly found in rRNA, snRNA. 2'-O-methylation sequencing enables a transcriptome-wide mapping of this modification.
Pseudouridylation sequencing is a NGS-based method to comprehensively detect global maps of pseudouridylation, a post-transcriptional modification in various molecules.
