Expensive??????   Relative to what???  I've been using HpaII and MspI for 
years and doing similar experiments.

I suspect it is one of the cheaper pairs.  Certainly it is more expensive 
than things like BamHI or EcoRI .... but not much .... compare it to the 
price of Taq polymerase or some of the other stranger restriction enzymes.

And considering that almost everyone using these two enzymes for 
methylation studies, it probably would be unwise to alter from this.
