Boehringer Mannheim lists 5-methyl-dCTP, catalog #757 047, 10 micromoles
in their 1990/1991 catalog, page 236.  They describe it as a useful substrate
for producing hemimethylated DNA.  In case you don't have their catalog, they
list a distributor in Taiwan - Formo Industrial Co., Ltd.  RM.D., FL. 9,
#121, Sec. 3, Ho-Pin East Road P.O. Box 57-74 Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C.
Tel.: (02) 7367125  Fax:(02) 7362647.
Good luck!
