Assay for methylation in the GST-Pi gene

Image Number 10 for United States Patent #8088577.

A diagnostic or prognostic assay is disclosed for a disease of condition characterized by abnormal methylation of cytosine at side or sites within the glutathione-S-transferase (GST) Pi gene and/or its regulatory flanking sequences (e.g., prostate cancer and liver cancer). The assay comprises: (i) isolating DNA from said subject, and (ii) determining (e.g., by selective PCR amplification) the presence of abnormal methylation of cytosine at a site or sites within the GST-Pi gene and/or its regulatory flanking sequences.
