Keloid, a benign skin disorder, forms during wound healing in genetically susceptible individuals. To better control keloid and understand the molecular mechanisms, this study screened gene hypermethylations of GEO database microarray data on keloids and identified the hypermethylation of the secreted frizzled related protein-1 (SFRP1) promoter. Subsequently, hypermethylation and mRNA and protein levels were assessed in 57 cases of keloid vs. normal skin tissues. Fibroblasts from tissues were isolated for the assessment of gene regulation in vitro...

Background: Integration of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) into the host genome causes global disruption of the chromatin environment. The abundance level of various chromatin-modifying enzymes produces these alterations and affects both the provirus and cellular gene expression. Here, we investigated potential changes in enzyme expression and global DNA methylation in chronically infected individuals with HIV-1 and compared these changes with non-HIV infected individuals...

Our current view of DNA methylation processes is strongly moving: First, even if it was generally admitted that DNMT3A and DNMT3B are associated with de novo methylation and DNMT1 is associated with inheritance DNA methylation, these distinctions are now not so clear. Secondly, since one decade, many partners of DNMTs have been involved in both the regulation of DNA methylation activity and DNMT recruitment on DNA. The high diversity of interactions and the combination of these interactions let us to subclass the different DNMT-including complexes...

Impairment of neurogenesis in the hippocampus following whole-brain irradiation is the most important mechanism of radiation-induced cognitive dysfunction. However, the underlying mechanism remains obscure, meaning an ideal therapeutic target has not been identified. Evidence indicates that DNA methylation in neurons regulates synaptic plasticity and neuronal network activity. In the present study, the expression of DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) in the hippocampus was analyzed to investigate their potential function in radiation-induced neurogenesis impairment...

T(16;21)(p11;q22)/FUS-ERG is a rare but recurrent translocation in acute leukemias and in some types of solid tumors. Due to multiple types of FUS-ERG transcripts, PCR-based minimal residual disease detection is impeded. In this study, we evaluated a cohort of pediatric patients with t(16;21)(p11;q22)/FUS-ERG and revealed fusion gene breakpoints. We implemented next-generation sequencing (NGS) on long PCR amplicons for the detection of fusion genes with unknown partners or DNA breakpoints. That allowed us to describe different fusion variants of FUS/ERG in different patients and to detect MRD on both RNA and DNA levels...

Previous studies have demonstrated a dynamic epigenetic regulation of genes expression in placenta trophoblasts and a dynamic imbalance of DNA methylation and hydroxymethylation. Reduced IGF-1 has been observed in preeclampsia. This study was to investigate the interactive roles between IGF-1 and the global DNA methylation/hydroxymethylation, and the status of DNA methylation/hydroxymethylation and associated enzymes such as DNMTs and TETs in peeeclamptic placentas and hypoxic trophoblasts. It was found that IGF-1 was decreased in preeclamptic placentas and hypoxic trophoblasts when compared to the control group using immunohistochemisty, western blot, qRT-PCR and ELISA...

Epigenome aberrations have been observed in tobacco-associated human malignancies. (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) has been proven to modulate gene expression by targeting DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) through a proposed mechanism involving the gallate moiety of EGCG. We show that gallic acid (GA) changes the methylome of lung cancer and pre-malignant oral cell lines and markedly reduces both nuclear and cytoplasmic DNMT1 and DNMT3B within 1 week. GA exhibits stronger cytotoxicity against the lung cancer cell line H1299 than EGCG...

DNA methylation by de novo DNA methyltransferases 3A (DNMT3A) and 3B (DNMT3B) at cytosines is essential for genome regulation and development. Dysregulation of this process is implicated in various diseases, notably cancer. However, the mechanisms underlying DNMT3 substrate recognition and enzymatic specificity remain elusive. Here we report a 2.65-ångström crystal structure of the DNMT3A-DNMT3L-DNA complex in which two DNMT3A monomers simultaneously attack two cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) dinucleotides, with the target sites separated by 14 base pairs within the same DNA duplex...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Peripheral T cell lymphoma is a rare heterogeneous group of diseases which are characterized by poor outcomes to treatment and short overall survival. In the past decade, several new therapies targeting T cell biology have been approved in the relapsed setting. These new therapies, such as pralatrexate, romidepsin, belinostat, and brentuximab vedotin, have begun to make their way into practice. Despite these advances, outcomes have not changed dramatically. In recent years, efforts have been made to incorporate these new therapies into combination strategies to treat this challenging disease entity...

Hematopoietic clones harboring specific mutations may expand over time. However, it remains unclear how different cellular stressors influence this expansion. Here we characterize clonal hematopoiesis after two different cellular stressors: cytotoxic therapy and hematopoietic transplantation. Cytotoxic therapy results in the expansion of clones carrying mutations in DNA damage response genes, including TP53 and PPM1D. Analyses of sorted populations show that these clones are typically multilineage and myeloid-biased...

Castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) is a stage of relapse that arises after various forms of androgen ablation therapy (ADT) and causes significant morbidity and mortality. However, the mechanism underlying progression to CRPC remains poorly understood. Here, we report that YAP1, which is negatively regulated by AR, influences prostate cancer (PCa) cell self-renewal and CRPC development. Specifically, we found that AR directly regulates the methylation of YAP1 gene promoter via the formation of a complex with Polycomb group protein EZH2 and DNMT3a...

Despite known age-related DNA methylation (aDNAm) changes in breast tumors, little is known about aDNAm in normal breast tissues. Breast tissues from a cross-sectional study of 121 cancer-free women, were assayed for genome-wide DNA methylation. mRNA expression was assayed by microarray technology. Analysis of covariance was used to identify aDNAm's. Altered methylation was correlated with expression of the corresponding gene and with DNA methyltransferase protein DNMT3A, assayed by immunohistochemistry. Publically-available TCGA-BRCA data were used for replication...

Human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived hepatocyte-like cells are expected to be utilized in pharmaceutical research, including drug screening. However, the hepatocyte functions of the hepatocyte-like cells are still lower than those of human hepatocytes. Therefore, we attempted to improve the hepatocyte differentiation method by modulating the DNA epigenetic status. We first examined the expression profiles of the maintenance DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) 1 and the de novo DNA methyltransferases DNMT3A and DNMT3B, all of which are essential for mammalian development...

Stress and antidepressant treatment can modulate DNA methylation in promoter region of genes related to neuroplasticity and mood regulation, thus implicating this epigenetic mechanism in depression neurobiology and treatment. Accordingly, systemic administration of DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) inhibitors induces antidepressant-like effects in rodents. DNA methylation is conveyed by DNMT 1, 3a and 3b isoforms, which are differentially expressed in the brain. In order to investigate if the behavioral effects of antidepressants could be associated with changes in DNA methylation and DNMT expression, we investigated the effects induced by acute and repeated antidepressant treatment on DNA methylation and DNMT expression (1, 3a and 3b isoforms) in different brain regions of rats exposed to a stress model of depression, the learned helplessness (LH)...

In our study, we added natriuretic peptide type C (NPPC) and/or sildenafil during in vitro maturation (IVM) of bovine cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) followed by in vitro culture (IVC) of embryos with or without sildenafil. We evaluated the effects on the lipid content (LC) of oocytes and embryos and also verified the expression of 96 transcripts related to competence in matured COCs and 96 transcripts related to embryo quality in blastocysts. After IVM, LC was decreased in oocytes by NPPC while sildenafil did not affect LC in oocytes...
