Twin DNA methylation profiling reveals flare-dependent interferon signature and B-cell promoter hypermethylation in systemic lupus erythematosus.

Summary of "Twin DNA methylation profiling reveals flare-dependent interferon signature and B-cell promoter hypermethylation in systemic lupus erythematosus."

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) has limited monozygotic (MZ) twin concordance, implying a role for other pathogenic factors than genetic variation, such as epigenetic changes. Using the disease discordant twin model, we investigated genome-wide DNA methylation changes in sorted CD4+ T-cells, monocytes, granulocytes and B-cells in twin pairs with at least one SLE-affected twin.

Chromatin immunoprecipitation and high throughput sequencing of SVCV-infected zebrafish reveals novel epigenetic histone methylation patterns involved in antiviral immune response.

Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) and high throughput sequencing (ChIP-seq) have been used to assess histone methylation (epigenetic modification) dynamics within the internal organs of zebrafish a...

Identification of DNA methylation prognostic signature of acute myelocytic leukemia.

The aim of this study is to find the potential survival related DNA methylation signature capable of predicting survival time for acute myelocytic leukemia (AML) patients.

Inference about causation between body mass index and DNA methylation in blood from a twin family study.

Several studies have reported DNA methylation in blood to be associated with body mass index (BMI), but few have investigated causal aspects of the association. We used a twin family design to assess ...

A comprehensive methylation signature identifies lymph node metastasis in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Treatment modalities in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) depend largely on lymph node metastasis (LNM) status. With sub-optimal detection sensitivity of existing imaging techniques, we propos...

Evaluation of massively parallel sequencing for forensic DNA methylation profiling.

Epigenetics is an emerging area of interest in forensic science. DNA methylation, a type of epigenetic modification, can be applied to chronological age estimation, identical twin differentiation and ...

This study will be the first study that evaluates the effectiveness of antenatal corticosteroid (ACS) in late preterm twin neonates.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A multimeric complex that functions as a ligand-dependent transcription factor. ISGF3 is assembled in the CYTOPLASM and translocated to the CELL NUCLEUS in response to INTERFERON signaling. It consists of ISGF3-GAMMA and ISGF3-ALPHA, and it regulates expression of many interferon-responsive GENES.

Interferon secreted by leukocytes, fibroblasts, or lymphoblasts in response to viruses or interferon inducers other than mitogens, antigens, or allo-antigens. They include alpha- and beta-interferons (INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA).

An interferon regulatory factor that binds upstream TRANSCRIPTIONAL REGULATORY ELEMENTS in the GENES for INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA. It functions as a transcriptional activator for the INTERFERON TYPE I genes.

A family of transcription factors that share an N-terminal HELIX-TURN-HELIX MOTIF and bind INTERFERON-inducible promoters to control GENE expression. IRF proteins bind specific DNA sequences such as interferon-stimulated response elements, interferon regulatory elements, and the interferon consensus sequence.

Passage of blood from one fetus to another via an arteriovenous communication or other shunt, in a monozygotic twin pregnancy. It results in anemia in one twin and polycythemia in the other. (Lee et al., Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology, 9th ed, p737-8)
