    Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a group of malignancies with heterogeneous genetic and epigenetic alterations. Discovery of molecular markers that better define NHL should improve diagnosis, prognosis and understanding of the biology. We developed a CpG island DNA microarray for discovery of...

G. // Leukemia (08876924);May2008, Vol. 22 Issue 5, p1035 

    In an initial epigenetic characterization of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), we evaluated the DNA methylation levels of over 500 CpG islands. Twelve CpG islands (AR, CDKN1C, DLC1, DRD2, GATA4, GDNF, GRIN2B, MTHFR, MYOD1, NEUROD1, ONECUT2 and TFAP2A) showed significant methylation in over...

    For the past 25 years, it has been known that alterations in DNA methylation (DNAm) occur in cancer, including hypomethylation of oncogenes and hypermethylation of tumor suppressor genes. However, most studies of cancer methylation have assumed that functionally important DNAm will occur in...

    The cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p15INK4b has been shown to be involved in human and rodent tumors and seems to act as a tumor suppressor gene in hematological malignancies. Alterations of this gene in tumors include mainly homozygous deletions and hypermethylation of the CpG island in the...

    We have determined the methylation status of the CpG island of the oestrogen receptor α gene in seven human ovarian cell lines. Cell lines expressing oestrogen receptor α showed no evidence of hypermethylation. In three of four cell lines that produced no detectable oestrogen receptor α...

    DLC-1 (deleted in liver cancer) gene is frequently deleted in hepatocellular carcinoma. However, little is known about the genetic status and the expression of this gene in gastric cancer. In this study, Northern and Southern analysis showed that seven of nine human gastric cancer cell lines did...

    Checkpoint with fork-head associated and ring finger (CHFR) is a mitotic checkpoint gene with tumor-suppressor functions. Previous studies have described the hypermethylation of the CpG island in the promoter region as a key mechanism involved in silencing tumor suppressor genes. The epigenetic...

    To gain insight into the function of DNA methylation at cis-regulatory regions and its impact on gene expression, we measured methylation, RNA polymerase occupancy and histone modifications at 16,000 promoters in primary human somatic and germline cells. We find CpG-poor promoters...
