BACKGROUND: Maternal cannabis use in pregnancy is linked with long-term adverse behavioral outcomes in offspring. Epigenetic processes established in utero that affect dopaminergic (reward) signaling may mediate risks. Associations between cannabis use and offspring DNA methylation have not been investigated; however, maternal tobacco smoking in pregnancy is associated with distinct patterns of DNA methylation at birth and beyond. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether maternal cannabis use is associated with methylation of the dopamine receptor gene DRD4 promoter in infants...

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) and its receptor (IL-6R) were regarded to be responsible for the occurrence of gastric cancer for their regulation roles in the inflammation. The genetic variations in these two genes (IL-6: rs6949149, rs1800796, rs10499563 and IL-6R:rs2228145) have been suggested to be associated with gastric cancer risk. However, the published results were inconsistent among subjects of different ethnicity. To evaluate such an association in Chinese population, we carried out this case-control study based on 473 patients with gastric cancer and 474 healthy controls, whose genotype were detected by the Sequenom MassARRAY platform, and Helicobacter pylori infection was assessed by immunogold testing kit...

The promoter of MEG3, which encodes the long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) MEG3, is often hypermethylated in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Additionally, the Tet methylcytosine dioxygenase 2 gene (TET2) is frequently inactivated, which can lead to impaired DNA methylation and promote AML development. We examined the association between TET2 and MEG3 promoter hypermethylation in Hainan patients with AML. The expression of MEG3, TET2, miR-22-3p, and miR-22-5p was assessed in bone marrow samples from AML patients and healthy controls using real-time quantitative PCR...
