AbstractAlthough methylation-specific PCR (MSP) is a sensitive technique in the detection of DNA hypermethylation, it is not quantitative. Here we described a modified PCR protocol to quantify methylated SOCS-1 gene by real time MSP using SYBR green, which involves an additional PCR step after the 72degreesC extension step. This modified protocol is also useful in the quantitative detection of methylated SOCS-1 gene in serum samples of gastric cancer patients.
