To understand mammalian active DNA demethylation, various methods have been developed to map the genomic distribution of the demethylation intermediates 5-formylcysotine (5fC) and 5-carboxylcytosine (5caC). However, the majority of these methods requires a large number of cells to begin with. In this study, we describe low-input methylase-assisted bisulfite sequencing (liMAB-seq ) and single-cell MAB-seq (scMAB-seq), capable of profiling 5fC and 5caC at genome scale using ∼100 cells and single cells, respectively...

DNA methylation (DNAme) is an important epigenetic mark in diverse species. Our current understanding of DNAme is based on measurements from bulk cell samples, which obscures intercellular differences and prevents analyses of rare cell types. Thus, the ability to measure DNAme in single cells has the potential to make important contributions to the understanding of several key biological processes, such as embryonic development, disease progression and aging. We have recently reported a method for generating genome-wide DNAme maps from single cells, using single-cell bisulfite sequencing (scBS-seq), allowing the quantitative measurement of DNAme at up to 50% of CpG dinucleotides throughout the mouse genome...

Conventional DNA bisulfite sequencing has been extended to single cell level, but the coverage consistency is insufficient for parallel comparison. Here we report a novel method for genome-wide CpG island (CGI) methylation sequencing for single cells (scCGI-seq), combining methylation-sensitive restriction enzyme digestion and multiple displacement amplification for selective detection of methylated CGIs. We applied this method to analyzing single cells from two types of hematopoietic cells, K562 and GM12878 and small populations of fibroblasts and induced pluripotent stem cells...

Modification of CG dinucleotides in DNA is part of epigenetic regulation of gene function in vertebrates and is associated with complex human disease. Bisulfite sequencing permits high-resolution analysis of cytosine modification in mammalian genomes; however, its utility is often limited due to substantial cost. Here, we describe an alternative epigenome profiling approach, named TOP-seq, which is based on covalent tagging of individual unmodified CG sites followed by non-homologous priming of the DNA polymerase action at these sites to directly produce adjoining regions for their sequencing and precise genomic mapping...

The early endosperm tissue of dicot species is very difficult to isolate by manual dissection. This protocol details how to apply the INTACT (isolation of nuclei tagged in specific cell types) system for isolating early endosperm nuclei of Arabidopsis at high purity and how to generate parental-specific epigenome profiles. As a Protocol Extension, this article describes an adaptation of an existing Nature Protocol that details the use of the INTACT method for purification of root nuclei. We address how to obtain the INTACT lines, generate the starting material and purify the nuclei...

Current knowledge about the role of epigenetics in type 2 diabetes (T2D) remains limited. Only a few studies have investigated DNA methylation of selected candidate genes or a very small fraction of genomic CpG sites in human pancreatic islets, the tissue of primary pathogenic importance for diabetes. Our aim was to characterize the whole-genome DNA methylation landscape in human pancreatic islets, to identify differentially methylated regions (DMRs) in diabetic islets, and to investigate the function of DMRs in islet biology...

Since the discovery of oxidative demethylation of methylcytosine (mC) by Tet enzymes, an analytical method has been urgently needed that would enable the identification of mC and hydroxymethylcytosine (hmC) at the single base resolution level, because their roles in gene regulation are quite different from each other. However, the bisulfite sequencing method, the gold standard for DNA methylation analysis at present, does not distinguish them. Recently reported alternative methods, such as oxBS-seq and TAB-seq, are not even capable of determining mC and hmC simultaneously...

A myriad of diseases is caused or characterized by alteration of epigenetic patterns, including changes in DNA methylation, post-translational histone modifications, or chromatin structure. These changes of the epigenome represent a highly interesting layer of information for disease stratification and for personalized medicine. Traditionally, epigenomic profiling required large amounts of cells, which are rarely available with clinical samples. Also, the cellular heterogeneity complicates analysis when profiling clinical samples for unbiased genome-wide biomarker discovery...

Next-generation sequencing (NGS), particularly single-cell sequencing, has revolutionized the scale and scope of genomic and biomedical research. Recent technological advances in NGS and singlecell studies have made the deep whole-genome (DNA-seq), whole-epigenome and whole-transcriptome sequencing (RNA-seq) at single-cell level feasible. NGS at the single-cell level expands our view of genome, epigenome and transcriptome and allows the genome, epigenome and transcriptome of any organism to be explored without a priori assumptions and with unprecedented throughput...

BACKGROUND: Multiple testing to understand global changes in gene expression based on genetic and epigenetic modifications is evolving. Chorionic villi, obtained for prenatal testing, is limited, but can be used to understand ongoing human pregnancies. However, optimal storage, processing and utilization of CVS for multiple platform testing have not been established. RESULTS: Leftover CVS samples were flash-frozen or preserved in RNAlater. Modifications to standard isolation kits were performed to isolate quality DNA and RNA from samples as small as 2-5 mg...

Histone H1 variants, known as linker histones, are essential chromatin components in higher eukaryotes, yet compared to the core histones relatively little is known about their in vivo functions. The filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa encodes a single H1 protein that is not essential for viability. To investigate the role of N. crassa H1, we constructed a functional FLAG-tagged H1 fusion protein and performed genomic and molecular analyses. Cell fractionation experiments showed that H1-3XFLAG is a chromatin binding protein...

DNA methylation was the first epigenetic mark to be discovered, involving the addition of a methyl group to the 5' position of cytosine by DNA methyltransferases, and can be inherited through cell division. DNA methylation plays an important role in normal human development and is associated with the regulation of gene expression, tumorigenesis, and other genetic and epigenetic diseases. Differential methylation is now known to play a central role in the development and outcome of most if not all human malignancies...

Extensive changes in DNA methylation are common in cancer and may contribute to oncogenesis through transcriptional silencing of tumor-suppressor genes. Genome-scale studies have yielded important insights into these changes but have focused on CpG islands or gene promoters. We used whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (bisulfite-seq) to comprehensively profile a primary human colorectal tumor and adjacent normal colon tissue at single-basepair resolution. Regions of focal hypermethylation in the tumor were located primarily at CpG islands and were concentrated within regions of long-range (>100 kb) hypomethylation...

SUMMARY: A combination of bisulfite treatment of DNA and high-throughput sequencing (BS-Seq) can capture a snapshot of a cell's epigenomic state by revealing its genome-wide cytosine methylation at single base resolution. Bismark is a flexible tool for the time-efficient analysis of BS-Seq data which performs both read mapping and methylation calling in a single convenient step. Its output discriminates between cytosines in CpG, CHG and CHH context and enables bench scientists to visualize and interpret their methylation data soon after the sequencing run is completed...
