Dietary supplementation with propylene glycol (PG) increases in vitro production of high-quality embryos in feed-restricted heifers. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of PG in feed-restricted heifers on follicular fluid insulin and insulin-like growth factor (IGF) 1 concentrations, expression of IGF system genes in oocytes and cumulus cells and the expression of selected genes in blastocysts. Feed-restricted (R) heifers were drenched with water or PG during induced oestrous cycles (400mL of PG or water/drench, daily drenching at 1600 hours for the first 9 days of the oestrous cycle)...

The study aims to investigate the effect of Ligustri Lucidi Fructus on cytochrome c oxidase(COX) activity in rat hepatic tissues and explore its possible mechanism of DNA methylation. Male SD rats received aqueous extract of Ligustri Lucidi Fructus (2.0,6.0 g•kg⁻¹) by intragastric administration for 30 d. After the rats were sacrificed, hepatic tissues of rats were taken to detect COX activity, protein concentration of COX4I1, TET1 and DNMT3A protein levels, mRNA expression levels of Cox4i1, Dnmt3a and Tet1, and determine the DNA methylation frequency of Cox4i1...

Execution of pluripotency requires progression from the naïve status represented by mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) to a state capacitated for lineage specification. This transition is coordinated at multiple levels. Non-coding RNAs may contribute to this regulatory orchestra. We identified a rodent-specific long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) linc1281, hereafter Ephemeron (Eprn), that modulates the dynamics of exit from naïve pluripotency. Eprn deletion delays the extinction of ESC identity, an effect associated with perduring Nanog expression...

The first two differentiation events in the blastocyst result in three cell types - epiblast, trophectoderm (TE), and hypoblast. The purpose here was to identify molecular markers for each cell type in the bovine and evaluate differences in gene expression among individual cells of each lineage. The cDNA from 67 individual cells from dissociated blastocysts was used to determine transcript abundance for 96 genes implicated as cell lineage markers in other species or potentially involved in developmental processes...

The accumulation of α-synuclein is the primary pathological hallmark of Parkinson's disease (PD). In PD patients, CpG demethylation of intron-1 has been reported to be associated with α-synuclein up-regulation. Environmental factor, for example neurotoxin, is a major etiological risk factor in PD pathogenesis. However, the role of CpG methylation in neurotoxin-induced PD has not been addressed completely yet. To explore CpG methylation associating with α-synuclein transcription and its underlying mechanisms in the neurotoxin-induced PD pathology, human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells were treated with neurotoxins 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) and 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP(+))...

AIMS: The objective of this study was to determine the underlying mechanism by which glucocorticoids (GCs) induce of miR-29c expression in vascular smooth muscle cells. MAIN METHODS: QRT-PCR was used for miR-29c detection. Protein levels were determined by western blotting. Knockdown of SP1, DNMT1 and DNMT3A was achieved through transfection with their specific respective siRNAs. The effect of GCs on SP1 activity was determined by luciferase reporter assay and the methylation status in miR-29c promoter was detected by methylation specific PCR...

A recent article in Cell demonstrates that the absence of a single DNA methyltransferase, Dnmt3a, prevents cytotoxic T cells from acquiring the hypofunctional or exhausted phenotype typically seen in chronic viral infections and tumors. Upon establishing a causal relationship between exhaustion-associated epigenetic changes and reduced CD8(+) T cell function, the authors provided mechanistic evidence that exhaustion constitutes a specific differentiation program.

The specific phenotype of mature differentiated beta cells not only depends on the specific presence of genes that allow beta cell function but also on the selective absence of housekeeping genes ("disallowed genes") that would interfere with this function. Recent studies have shown that both histone modifications and DNA methylation via the de novo methyltransferase DNMT3A are involved in repression of disallowed genes in neonatal beta cells when these cells acquire their mature phenotype. It is unknown, however, if the environmental influence of advanced age, pregnancy and the metabolic stress of high fat diet or diabetes could alter the repression of disallowed genes in beta cells...

Organogenesis and tissue development occur through sequential stepwise processes leading to increased lineage restriction and loss of pluripotency. An exception to this appears in the adult human breast, where rare variant epithelial cells exhibit pluripotency and multilineage differentiation potential when removed from the signals of their native microenvironment. This phenomenon provides a unique opportunity to study mechanisms that lead to cellular reprogramming and lineage plasticity in real time. Here, we show that primary human mammary epithelial cells (HMECs) lose expression of differentiated mammary epithelial markers in a manner dependent on paracrine factors and epigenetic regulation...

BACKGROUND: DNA methyltransferase 3A (DNMT3A) mutations have been found in approximately 20% of adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients and in 0% to 1.4% of children with AML, and the hotspots of mutations are mainly located in the catalytic methyltransferase domain, hereinto, mutation R882 accounts for 60%. Although the negative effect of DNMT3A on treatment outcome is well known, the prognostic significance of other DNMT3A mutations in AML is still unclear. Here, we tried to determine the incidence and prognostic significance of DNMT3A mutations in a large cohort in Chinese childhood AML...

During gastrulation, the neuroectoderm cells form the neural tube and neural crest. The nervous system contains significantly more microRNAs than other tissues, but the role of microRNAs in controlling the differentiation of neuroectodermal cells into neural tube epithelial (NTE) cells and neural crest cells (NCCs) remains unknown. Using embryonic stem cell (ESC) neural differentiation systems, we found that miR-29b was upregulated in NTE cells and downregulated in NCCs. MiR-29b promoted the differentiation of ESCs into NTE cells and inhibited their differentiation into NCCs...

Suppressor of cytokine signaling 1 (SOCS1) protein, which encodes a member of signal transducers and activators of transcription-induced inhibitors, takes part in a negative regulation of cytokine signaling. The mechanism of SOCS1 in tumor carcinogenesis is complex and there have been no studies concerning the clinic-biologic implication of SOCS1 expression in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Here, we first identified that higher bone marrow (BM) SOCS1 expression was closely associated with older age, FLT3-ITD, NPM1 and DNMT3A mutations, but negatively correlated with CEBPA mutation in patients with de novo AML...

RUNX1 mutated AML show a distinct pattern of genetic abnormalities and an adverse prognosis. We analyzed the impact of multiple RUNX1 mutations and RUNX1 wild-type (WT) loss in 467 AML with RUNX1 mutations (mut): (1) RUNX1 WT loss (n=53), (2) >1 RUNX1mut (n=94) and (3) 1 RUNX1mut (n=323). In 1 RUNX1mut, +8 was most frequent, whereas in WT loss +13 was the most abundant trisomy (+8: 66% vs. 31%, P=0.022; +13: 15% vs 62%, P<0.001). Analyses of 28 genes in 163 selected cases revealed SRSF2 (39%), ASXL1 (36%), DNMT3A (19%), IDH2 (17%) and SF3B1 (17%) as most frequently mutated genes...

BACKGROUND: Discoidin Domain Receptor 1 (DDR1) belongs to the family of collagen receptor tyrosine kinases that confers the progression of various cancers. Aberrant expression of DDR1 was detected in several human cancers including ovarian cancer, which had been shown to increase the migration and invasion of tumor cells. However, the precise mechanisms underlying the abnormal expression of DDR1 in ovarian cancer has not been well investigated in previous studies. RESULTS: In this work, a negative correlation between DDR1 and a tumor suppressor miRNA, miR-199a-3p, was observed in ovarian cancer tissues...

Increasing evidence has suggested that MircroRNAs (miRNAs) dysregulated in pathogenesis and tumorigenicity in human cancers including gastric cancer (GC). MiR-143 had been reported to function as tumor suppressor in GC progression, however, the underlying function of miR-143 in GC still need to be well known. In the study, we revealed that miR-143 was significantly down-regulated in GC cell lines. Upregulation of miR-143 inhibited cell proliferation, invasion, S phase cell proportion and cell cycle related protein levels of Cyclin D1, CDK4 and CDK6 in GC...

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a haematological malignancy characterized by the excessive proliferation of immature myeloid cells coupled with impaired differentiation. Many AML cases have been reported without any known cytogenetic abnormalities and carry no mutation in known AML-associated driver genes. In this study, 200 AML cases were selected from a publicly available cohort and differentially analyzed for genetic, epigenetic, and cytogenetic abnormalities. Three genes (FLT3, DNMT3A, and NPMc) are found to be predominantly mutated...

Abundant evidence has accumulated showing that fetal alcohol exposure broadly modifies DNA methylation profiles in the brain. DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs), the enzymes responsible for DNA methylation, are likely implicated in this process. However, their regulation by ethanol exposure has been poorly addressed. Here, we show that alcohol exposure modulates DNMT protein levels through multiple mechanisms. Using a neural precursor cell line and primary mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs), we found that ethanol exposure augments the levels of Dnmt3a, Dnmt3b, and Dnmt3l transcripts...

To explore the epigenetic mechanisms regulating mesenchymal stem cells, we analyzed epigenetic patterns in control goat fetal fibroblast cells (gFFCs), adipose-derived stem cells (gADSCs), bone marrow stromal cells (gBMSCs), and muscle-derived satellite cells (gMDSCs). We found that the 5mC content of gBMSC genomes was lower than that of gFFC genomes, while the 5mC content of gADSC and gMDSC genomes surpassed that of gFFC genomes. H3K9 acetylation did not differ significantly among those cells; gFFCs, gADSCs, and gMDSCs contained acetylated H3K9, H3K14, H3K18, H4K5, and H4K12, but gBMSCs contained almost no acetylated H4K5 and H4K12...

High PRDM16 (also known as MEL1) expression is a representative marker of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with NUP98-NSD1 and is a significant predictive marker for poor prognosis in pediatric AML. However, the clinical features of adult AML with PRDM16 expression remain unclear. PRDM16 is highly homologous to MDS1/EVI1, which is an alternatively spliced transcript of MECOM (also known as EVI1). We investigated PRDM16 expression in 151 AML patients, with 47 (31%) exhibiting high PRDM16 expression (PRDM16/ABL1 ratio ≥ 0...

We investigated the frequencies of cytogenetic aberrations and somatic mutations of prognostic relevance in 393 patients with aplastic anaemia (AA). Clonality was determined by G-banding/fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) (n = 245), and targeted capture sequencing was performed for 88 haematopoiesis-related genes (n = 70). The telomere length (TL) of bone marrow nucleated cells was measured at the single cell level by FISH (n = 135). Eighteen (4·6%) patients showed disease progression, and monosomy 7 (50·0%) was the most predominant cytogenetic evolution at disease transformation...
