Enzymes that are part of the restriction-modification systems. They catalyze the endonucleolytic cleavage of DNA sequences which lack the species-specific methylation pattern in the host cell's DNA. Cleavage yields random or specific double-stranded fragments with terminal 5'-phosphates. The function of restriction enzymes is to destroy any foreign DNA that invades the host cell. Most have been studied in bacterial systems, but a few have been found in eukaryotic organisms. They are also used as tools for the systematic dissection and mapping of chromosomes, in the determination of base sequences of DNAs, and have made it possible to splice and recombine genes from one organism into the genome of another.

Mechanisms involved cause heritable changes to cells without changes to DNA sequence such as DNA METHYLATION; HISTONE modification; DNA REPLICATION TIMING; NUCLEOSOME positioning; and heterochromatization which result in selective gene expression or repression.
Enzymes that are part of the restriction-modification systems. They are responsible for producing a species-characteristic methylation pattern, on either adenine or cytosine residues, in a specific short base sequence in the host cell's own DNA. This methylated sequence will occur many times in the host-cell DNA and remain intact for the lifetime of the cell. Any DNA from another species which gains entry into a living cell and lacks the characteristic methylation pattern will be recognized by the restriction endonucleases of similar specificity and destroyed by cleavage. Most have been studied in bacterial systems, but a few have been found in eukaryotic organisms.

The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.

Base pairing of anhydrohexitol nucleosides with 2,6-diaminopurine, 5-methylcytosine and uracil asbase moiety. (1/489)

Hexitol nucleic acids (HNAs) with modified bases (5-methylcytosine, 2,6-diaminopurine or uracil) were synthesized. The introduction of the 5-methylcytosine base demonstrates that N -benzoylated 5-methylcytosyl-hexitol occurs as the imino tautomer. The base pairing systems (G:CMe, U:D, T:D and U:A) obey Watson-Crick rules. Substituting hT for hU, hCMefor hC and hD for hA generally leads to increased duplex stability. In a single case, replacement of hC by hCMedid not result in duplex stabilization. This sequence-specific effect could be explained by the geometry of the model duplex used for carrying out the thermal stability study. Generally, polypurine HNA sequences give more stable duplexes with their RNA complement than polypyrimidine HNA sequences. This observation supports the hypothesis that, besides changes in stacking pattern, the difference in conformational stress between purine and pyrimidine nucleosides may contribute to duplex stability. Introduction of hCMeand hD in HNA sequences further increases the potential of HNA to function as a steric blocking agent.  (+info)

Relationship between amount of esterase and gene copy number in insecticide-resistant Myzus persicae (Sulzer). (2/489)

Overproduction of the insecticide-degrading esterases, E4 and FE4, in peach-potato aphids, Myzus persicae (Sulzer), depends on both gene amplification and transcriptional control, the latter being associated with changes in DNA methylation. The structure and function of the aphid esterase genes have been studied but the determination of their copy number has proved difficult, a common problem with gene amplification. We have now used a combination of pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and quantitative competitive PCR to determine relative esterase gene copy numbers in aphid clones with different levels of insecticide resistance (R1, R2 and R3). There are approx. 4-fold increases between susceptible, R1, R2 and R3 aphids, reaching a maximum of approx. 80 times more genes in R3; this gives proportionate increases in esterase protein relative to susceptible aphids. Thus there is no overexpression of the amplified genes, in contrast with what was thought previously. For E4 genes, the loss of 5-methylcytosine is correlated with a loss of expression, greatly decreasing the amount of enzyme relative to the copy number.  (+info)

DNA methylation is a reversible biological signal. (3/489)

The pattern of DNA methylation plays an important role in regulating different genome functions. To test the hypothesis that DNA methylation is a reversible biochemical process, we purified a DNA demethylase from human cells that catalyzes the cleavage of a methyl residue from 5-methyl cytosine and its release as methanol. We show that similar to DNA methyltransferase, DNA demethylase shows CpG dinucleotide specificity, can demethylate mdCpdG sites in different sequence contexts, and demethylates both fully methylated and hemimethylated DNA. Thus, contrary to the commonly accepted model, DNA methylation is a reversible signal, similar to other physiological biochemical modifications.  (+info)

Identification of differentially methylated sequences in colorectal cancer by methylated CpG island amplification. (4/489)

CpG island methylation has been linked to tumor suppressor gene inactivation in neoplasia and may serve as a useful marker to clone novel cancer-related genes. We have developed a novel PCR-based method, methylated CpG island amplification (MCA), which is useful for both methylation analysis and cloning differentially methylated genes. Using restriction enzymes that have differential sensitivity to 5-methyl-cytosine, followed by adaptor ligation and PCR amplification, methylated CpG rich sequences can be preferentially amplified. In a model experiment using a probe from exon 1 of the p16 gene, signal was detected from MCA products of a colorectal cancer cell line but not in normal colon mucosa. To identify novel CpG islands differentially methylated in colorectal cancer, we have applied MCA coupled with representational difference analysis to the colon cancer cell line Caco2 as a tester and normal colon mucosa as a driver. Using this strategy, we isolated 33 differentially methylated DNA sequences, including fragments identical to several known genes (PAX6, Versican, alpha-tubulin, CSX, OPT, and rRNA gene). The association of hypermethylation of the clones obtained and transcriptional suppression in colorectal cancer was confirmed by examining the Versican gene, which we found to be silenced in methylated cell lines and reactivated by the methylation inhibitor 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine. We therefore propose that MCA is a useful technique to study methylation and to isolate CpG islands differentially methylated in cancer.  (+info)

Growth phase-dependent regulation of Vsr endonuclease may contribute to 5-methylcytosine mutational hot spots in Escherichia coli. (5/489)

Using rabbit polyclonal antibodies, we have shown that the Dcm cytosine methylase of Escherichia coli is maintained at a constant level during cell growth, while Vsr endonuclease levels are growth phase dependent. Decreased production of Vsr relative to Dcm during the log phase may contribute substantially to the mutability of 5-methylcytosine.  (+info)

Impact of C5-cytosine methylation on the solution structure of d(GAAAACGTTTTC)2. An NMR and molecular modelling investigation. (6/489)

The solution structures of d(GAAAACGTTTTC)2 and of its methylated derivative d(GAAAAMe5CGTTTTC)2 have been determined by NMR and molecular modelling in order to examine the impact of cytosine methylation on the central CpG conformation. Detailed 1H NMR and 31P NMR investigation of the two oligomers includes quantitative NOESY, 2D homonuclear Hartmann-Hahn spectroscopy, double-quantum-filtered COSY and heteronuclear 1H-31P correlation. Back-calculations of NOESY spectra and simulations of double-quantum-filtered COSY patterns were performed to gain accurate information on interproton distances and sugar phase angles. Molecular models under experimental constraints were generated by energy minimization by means of the molecular mechanics program JUMNA. The MORASS software was used to iteratively refine the structures obtained. After methylation, the oligomer still has a B-DNA conformation. However, there are differences in the structural parameters and the thermal stability as compared to the unmethylated molecule. Careful structural analysis shows that after methylation CpG departs from the usual conformation observed in other ACGT tetramers with different surroundings. Subtle displacements of bases, sugars and backbone imposed by the steric interaction of the two methyl groups inside the major groove are accompanied by severe pinching of the minor groove at the C-G residues.  (+info)

The role of the Escherichia coli mug protein in the removal of uracil and 3,N(4)-ethenocytosine from DNA. (7/489)

The human thymine-DNA glycosylase has a sequence homolog in Escherichia coli that is described to excise uracils from U.G mismatches (Gallinari, P., and Jiricny, J. (1996) Nature 383, 735-738) and is named mismatched uracil glycosylase (Mug). It has also been described to remove 3,N(4)-ethenocytosine (epsilonC) from epsilonC.G mismatches (Saparbaev, M., and Laval, J. (1998) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U. S. A. 95, 8508-8513). We used a mug mutant to clarify the role of this protein in DNA repair and mutation avoidance. We find that inactivation of mug has no effect on C to T or 5-methylcytosine to T mutations in E. coli and that this contrasts with the effect of ung defect on C to T mutations and of vsr defect on 5-methylcytosine to T mutations. Even under conditions where it is overproduced in cells, Mug has little effect on the frequency of C to T mutations. Because uracil-DNA glycosylase (Ung) and Vsr are known to repair U.G and T.G mismatches, respectively, we conclude that Mug does not repair U.G or T.G mismatches in vivo. A defect in mug also has little effect on forward mutations, suggesting that Mug does not play a role in avoiding mutations due to endogenous damage to DNA in growing E. coli. Cell-free extracts from mug(+) ung cells show very little ability to remove uracil from DNA, but can excise epsilonC. The latter activity is missing in extracts from mug cells, suggesting that Mug may be the only enzyme in E. coli that can remove this mutagenic adduct. Thus, the principal role of Mug in E. coli may be to help repair damage to DNA caused by exogenous chemical agents such as chloroacetaldehyde.  (+info)

5-Methylcytosine distribution and genome organization in triticale before and after treatment with 5-azacytidine. (8/489)

Triticale (2n=6x=42) is a hybrid plant including rye (R) and wheat (A and B) genomes. Using genomic in situ hybridization with rye DNA as a probe, we found the chromosomes of the R genome were not intermixed with the wheat chromosomes in 85% of nuclei. After treatment of seedlings with low doses of the drug 5-azacytidine (5-AC), leading to hypomethylation of the DNA, the chromosomes became intermixed in 60% of nuclei; the next generation showed intermediate organization. These results correlate with previous data showing that expression of R-genome rRNA genes, normally suppressed, is activated by 5-AC treatment and remains partially activated in the next generation. The distribution of 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) was studied using an antibody to 5-mC. Methylation was detected along the lengths of all chromosomes; there were some chromosome regions with enhanced and reduced methylation, but these were not located at consistent positions, nor were there differences between R and wheat genome chromosomes. After 5-AC treatment, lower levels of methylation were detected. After 5-AC treatment, in situ hybridization with rye genomic DNA sometimes showed micronuclei of rye origin and multiple translocations between wheat and rye chromosomes. Genomic DNA was analysed using methylation-sensitive restriction enzymes and, as probes, two rDNA sequences, two tandemly organised DNA sequences from rye (pSc200 and pSc250), and copia and the gypsy group retrotransposon fragments from rye and wheat. DNA extracted immediately after 5-AC treatment was cut more by methylation-sensitive restriction enzymes than DNA from untreated seedlings. Each probe gave a characteristic restriction fragment pattern, but rye- and wheat-origin probes behaved similarly, indicating that hypomethylation was induced in both genomes. In DNA samples from leaves taken 13-41 days after treatment, RFLP (Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism) patterns were indistinguishable from controls and 5-AC treatments with all probes. Surprising differences in hybridization patterns were seen between DNA from root tips and leaves with the copia-fragment probes.  (+info)

Recent studies suggest that DNA demethylation can be achieved through ten-eleven translocation (Tet) family of DNA deoxygenates mediated oxidation followed by thymine DNA glycosylase (TDG) mediated excision and repair, but it is unclear to what extent such active demethylation processes take place. Here, we generated genome-wide distribution maps of 5-methylcytosine(5mC),5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), 5-formylcytosine (5fC) and 5- carboxylcytosine (5caC) in wild-type and Tdg-deficient mouse embryonic stem cells. We observe that the steady state 5fC and 5caC are preferentially detected at repetitive sequences in wild-type cells. Depletion of TDG causes marked accumulation of 5fC and 5caC at a large number of distal gene regulatory elements and transcriptionally repressed/poised gene promoters, suggesting that Tet/TDG- dependent dynamic cycling of 5mC oxidation states may be involved in regulating the function of these regions. Thus, comprehensive mapping of 5mC oxidation and BER pathway activity ...

DNA methylation is established by DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) and is a key epigenetic mark. Ten Eleven Translocation (TET) proteins are enzymes that oxidize 5-methylcytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) and further oxidization products (oxi-mCs), which indirectly promote DNA demethylation. Here, we provide an overview of the effect of TET proteins and altered DNA modification status in T and B cell development and function. We summarize current advances in our understanding of the role of TET proteins and 5hmC in T and B cells in both physiological and pathological contexts. We describe how TET proteins and 5hmC regulate DNA modification, chromatin accessibility, gene expression and transcriptional networks, and discuss potential underlying mechanisms and open questions in the field.

Ten-Eleven Translocation (TET) proteins play an important role in regulating DNA methylation fidelity and their inactivation contributes to the DNA hypermethylation phenotype in cancer; they are Fe²+- and 2-oxoglutarate-dependent dioxygenases that successively oxidize 5-methylcytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), 5-formylcytosine (5fC) and 5-carboxylcytosine (5caC) and these oxidized methylcytosines are important intermediates in the process of 5mC demethylation.. TET proteins convert 5mC to 5hmC in vitro, but it is difficult to explore the process of DNA demethylation and their effects on endogenous hypermethylated genes in cells. In this study, we tried to develop a system that accumulates TET oxidase activity at hypermethylated promoters. To accomplish this, we constructed a fusion protein-producing vector consisting of methyl-CpG binding domain (MBD) and TET1 catalytic domain (TET1 CD) and asked whether this fusion protein (MBD-TET1 CD) could lead to DNA demethylation and gene ...
Active DNA demethylation in mammals. (a) The action of AID on 5-methylcytosine residues (white circles) in DNA (thick black line) gives rise to deaminated 5-met
The DNA demethylation pathway has been discovered to play a significant role in DNA epigenetics. This pathway removes the methyl group from cytosine, which is involved in the oxidation of 5-methylcytosine to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) by ten-eleven translocation (TET) proteins. Then, 5-hmC can be iteratively oxidized to generate 5-formylcytosine (5-foC) and 5-carboxylcytosine (5-caC). However, 5-hmC, 5-foC, and 5-caC are hardly detected due to their low content. In this study, we have developed a LC-HRMS method coupled with derivatization to accurately and simultaneously quantify 5-mC levels, along with its oxidation products in genomic DNA ...
Chemical modifications of proteins and nucleic acids can have significant effects on gene expression. Dr. He presented a technique to investigate the presence of the modified base 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) on genome wide scale. Tet methylcytosine dioxygenase (TET) oxidizes 5-methylcytosine (5-meC) to 5-hmC and further to 5-formylcytosine and 5-carboxylcytosine (He et al., 2011; Ito et al., 2011; Tahiliani et al., 2009). Yet both 5-meC and 5-hmC are protected from C to U conversion upon bisulfite treatment making it impossible to distinguish both DNA modifications with traditional bisulfite sequencing. This limitation can be overcome by TET-assisted bisulfite sequencing (TAB-Seq) (Yu et al., 2012).. Method: The bacteriophage T4 β-glucosyltransferase selectively glycosylates the hydroxyl group of 5-hmC. Utilization of glucose with an azide group (N3) allowed further modification such as addition of a biotin molecule (by simple click chemistry) which facilitates enrichment. Glycosylated, and ...
Epigenetics refers to heritable changes of phenotype or gene expression without the modification of DNA sequence. DNA methylation, a prominent epigenetic marks, is associated with gene expression, X chromosome inactivation, gene imprinting and developmental process. DNA methylation occurs by DNA methyltransferase to add methyl group at the 5th carbon of a cytosine to produce 5-methylcytosine (5mC), which is achieved by a similar mechanism in both the plants and animals. However, DNA demethylation pathways are fundamentally different in plant and animal. In animals, DNA demethylation is achieved by several enzymatic pathways, where TET1 catalyze the oxidation of 5mC to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) and successive oxidation of 5hmC to 5-formylcytosine (5fC) and 5-carboxycytosine (5caC), and deamination by AID/APOBEC. More efficient DNA demethylation is accomplished in plants by the DEMETER 5-methylcytosine DNA glycosylase, which mediates direct excision of 5mC from double strand DNA ...

This ebook provides an introduction to the key cytosine base modifications: 5-methylcytosine, 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), 5-formylcytosine (5fC), and 5-carboxylcytosine (5caC) that have been at the center of intense study in recent years.
5-Methylcytosine (MeC) is an endogenous modification of DNA that plays a crucial role in DNA-protein interactions, chromatin structure, epigenetic regulation, and DNA repair. MeC is produced via enzymatic methylation of the C-5 position of cytosine by DNA-methyltransferases (DNMT) which use S-adenosylmethionine (SA Nucleic Acid Modifications

Human mitochondria contain their own genome, which uses an unconventional genetic code. In addition to the standard AUG methionine codon, the single mitochondrial tRNA Methionine (mt‐tRNA$^{Met}$) also recognises AUA during translation initiation and elongation. Post‐transcriptional modifications of tRNAs are important for structure, stability, correct folding and aminoacylation as well as decoding. The unique 5‐formylcytosine (f$^{5}$C) modification of position 34 in mt‐tRNA$^{Met}$ has been long postulated to be crucial for decoding of unconventional methionine codons and efficient mitochondrial translation. However, the enzymes responsible for the formation of mitochondrial f$^{5}$C have been identified only recently. The first step of the f$^{5}$C pathway consists of methylation of cytosine by NSUN3. This is followed by further oxidation by ABH1. Here, we review the role of f$^{5}$C, the latest breakthroughs in our understanding of the biogenesis of this unique mitochondrial tRNA ...
DNA methylation is broadly recognized as the most stable epigenetic modification. Its distribution pattern in parental cells is faithfully transmitted to daughter cells during mitosis. Recent discoveries of the TET-mediated DNA oxidative demethylation greatly expanded our understanding about the plasticity and dynamics of this modification. TET family enzymes (TET1, TET2 and TET3) could successively oxidize 5-methylcytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethycytosine (5hmC), 5-formylcytosine (5fC) and 5-carboxylcytosine (5caC), which may lead to eventual demethylation. In the genome, different oxidized products occupy overlapping, but largely distinct, genomic regions, and only a subset of 5hmC is further oxidized, which leads to eventual demethylation. However, how the distributions and the fates of oxidative derivatives of 5mC are determined in cells remains elusive. Researchers from Prof. ZHU Bings group in the Institute of Biophysics (IBP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and their collaborators set ...

Tumors exhibit oncogenic epigenetic alterations including global hypomethylation and local promoter hypermethylation that can repress the transcription of tumor suppressor genes and promote cancer cell growth. Oxygen-dependent tet methylcytosine dioxygenase (TET) family proteins catalyze the oxidation of 5-methylcytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), resulting in DNA demethylation. 5hmC is frequently lost in cancer, but in the majority of tumors, the underlying mechanism is unclear. Thienpont and colleagues observed that hypoxia induced 5hmC loss in a majority of tested human and murine cell lines, resulting from reduced activity, but not reduced expression, of TETs. DNA-immunoprecipitation sequencing (DIP-seq) revealed global loss of 5hmC in response to hypoxia, predominantly at gene promoters, many of which had concomitant gain of 5mC, and RNA-seq confirmed that expression of these genes was repressed. Data from The Cancer Genome Atlas showed increased promoter hypermethylation in ...

Methylation, in the form of 5-methylcytosine or 5mC, is both a control button for turning genes off and a sign of their off state. 5hmC looks like 5mC, except it has an extra oxygen.

Abstract The aim of our proposal is to elucidate the mechanisms that link transcription of specific RNAs in the nucleus to their translation (RNA processing). ?We have identified and characterized a novel and highly conserved gene, ?Zfrp8/PDCD2, ?and shown that it is essential in stem cells in flies, mouse, and human, and that it is also required for growth of cancer cells. We discovered ?Zfrp8/PDCD2 ?is required for the nuclear export of select mRNAs and TE transcripts. Also it interacts with the small ribosomal subunit and forms a complex with mRNA binding proteins. Our data suggest that Zfrp8/PDCD2 controls subcellular localization of select RNAs and the association of mRNA-RNPs with ribosomes. We also have identified Tet/TET1 as a new Zfrp8/PDCD2 interacting protein. In vertebrates, TET proteins function in DNA demethylation converting 5-methylcytosine (5mC) into 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), modifications that are not detected in Drosophila DNA. A recent study shows that vertebrate Tet ...

We report how the mammalian 5-methylcytosine (5mC) oxidase Tet3 exists as 3 main isoforms and characterized the full-length isoform containing an N-terminal CXXC domain (Tet3FL). stopping neurodegenerative diseases. Launch 5 (5mC) is certainly a customized cytosine bottom implicated in gene control and is definitely thought to be the only modified base naturally present in mammalian DNA (Klose and Bird 2006 Only lately 5 (5hmC) in addition has been discovered (Kriaucionis and Heintz 2009 Tahiliani et al. 2009 5 is certainly formed enzymatically with the Tet category of 5mC oxidases (Tahiliani et al. 2009 Ito et al. 2010 and is currently regarded as a stable element of the epigenetic code (Koh and Rao 2013 Pfeifer et al. 2013 Wu and Zhang 2014 Additionally 5 continues to be seen as an intermediate bottom in developmentally managed DNA demethylation reactions.

In eukaryotic DNA, methylation most commonly occurs as 5-methylcytosine. This is often in blocks of heterochromatin or in CpG islands surrounding genes (http://www.methdb.de) and is recognized as playing a fundamental role in regulating gene expression. In the case of mRNA, a number of modifications are possible, such as C-to-U editing in some chloroplast and mitochondrial transcripts (Shikanai, 2006) or A-to-I deamination, found in some animal RNAs (Zhang and Carmichael, 2001). Methylation of the N6 position of the adenosine base has been observed in many RNA species, including tRNA, rRNA, and small nuclear RNA (snRNA) (Bjork et al., 1987; Maden, 1990; Shimba et al., 1995; Gu et al., 1996; Agris et al., 2007; Piekna-Przybylska et al., 2008), but the functional importance of its occurrence in mRNA has remained unclear since its discovery ,30 years ago (Desrosiers et al., 1974; Perry and Kelley, 1974).. N6-Methyladenosine (m6A) is found in the mRNA of some viruses (Beemon and Keith, 1977; Aloni ...

FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a nuclear protein which is involved in cell-cycle regulation. The encoded protein is a ubiquitin-ligase capable of ubiquinating PCNP (PEST-containing nuclear protein), and together they may play a role in tumorigenesis. The encoded protein contains an NIRF_N domain, a PHD finger, a set- and ring-associated (SRA) domain, and a RING finger domain and several of these domains have been shown to be essential for the regulation of cell proliferation. This protein may also have a role in intranuclear degradation of polyglutamine aggregates. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants some of which are non-protein coding.

The ten-eleven translocation (TET)-dependent generation and removal of oxidized derivatives of 5-methylcytosine (5mC), namely 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), 5-formylcytosine (5fC) and 5-carboxylcytosine (5caC), uncovered a new paradigm of active DNA demethylation in mammalian genomes. Besides acting as demethylation intermediates, these oxidized variants of 5mC may also play functional roles. Emerging evidence has suggested 5hmC as a stable epigenetic modification implicated in many biological processes and various diseases. 5fC and 5caC, further oxidation products of 5hmC, accumulate at distal regulatory elements as active DNA demethylation intermediates and can be removed through base excision repair by mammalian thymine DNA glycosylase (TDG). My laboratory recently developed fC-CET, a bisulfite-free, base-resolution method for the genome-wide identification of 5fC sites. We will continue to develop robust and sensitive sequencing technologies, including those applicable to single-cell ...
Hydroxymethyl Collector Kit is designed for the detection and enrichment of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) DNA for whole-genome or gene specific hydroxymethylation analyis.
DNA is not merely a combination of four genetic codes, namely A, T, C, and G. It also contains minor modifications that play crucial roles throughout biology. For example, the fifth DNA base, 5-methylcytosine (5-mC), which accounts for ∼1% of all the nucleotides in mammalian genomic DNA, is a vital epigenetic mark. It impacts a broad range of biological functions, from development to cancer. Recently, an oxidized form of 5-methylcytosine, 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC), was found to constitute the sixth base in the mammalian genome; it was believed to be another crucial epigenetic mark. Unfortunately, further study of this newly discovered DNA base modification has been hampered by inadequate detection and sequencing methods, because current techniques fail to differentiate 5-hmC from 5-mC. The immediate challenge, therefore, is to develop robust methods for ascertaining the positions of 5-hmC within the mammalian genome. In this Account, we describe our development of the first bioorthogonal,
Bisulfite sequencing (also known as bisulphite sequencing) is the use of bisulfite treatment of DNA to determine its pattern of methylation. DNA methylation was the first discovered epigenetic mark, and remains the most studied. In animals it predominantly involves the addition of a methyl group to the carbon-5 position of cytosine residues of the dinucleotide CpG, and is implicated in repression of transcriptional activity. Treatment of DNA with bisulfite converts cytosine residues to uracil, but leaves 5-methylcytosine residues unaffected. Therefore, DNA that has been treated with bisulfite retains only methylated cytosines. Thus, bisulfite treatment introduces specific changes in the DNA sequence that depend on the methylation status of individual cytosine residues, yielding single-nucleotide resolution information about the methylation status of a segment of DNA. Various analyses can be performed on the altered sequence to retrieve this information. The objective of this analysis is ...
It is widely accepted that cAMP regulates gene transcription principally by activating the protein kinase A (PKA)-targeted transcription factors. Here, we show that cAMP enhances the generation of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) in multiple cell types. 5hmC is converted from 5-methylcytosine (5mC) by Tet methylcytosine dioxygenases, for which Fe(II) is an essential cofactor. The promotion of 5hmC was mediated by a prompt increase of the intracellular labile Fe(II) pool (LIP). cAMP enhanced the acidification of endosomes for Fe(II) release to the LIP likely through RapGEF2. The effect of cAMP on Fe(II) and 5hmC was confirmed by adenylate cyclase activators, phosphodiesterase inhibitors, and most notably by stimulation of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR). The transcriptomic changes caused by cAMP occurred in concert with 5hmC elevation in differentially transcribed genes. Collectively, these data show a previously unrecognized regulation of gene transcription by GPCR-cAMP signaling through ...
Active DNA demethylation is crucial for epigenetic control, but the underlying enzymatic mechanisms are incompletely understood. REPRESSOR OF SILENCING 1 (ROS1) is a 5-methylcytosine (5-meC) DNA glycosylase/lyase that initiates DNA demethylation in plants through a base excision repair process. The enzyme binds DNA nonspecifically and slides along the substrate in search of 5-meC. In this work, we have used homology modelling and biochemical analysis to gain insight into the mechanism of target location and recognition by ROS1. We have found that three putative helix-intercalating residues (Q607, R903 and M905) are required for processing of 5-meC:G pairs, but dispensable for excision of mismatched 5-meC. Mutant proteins Q607A, R903A and M905G retain the capacity to process an abasic site opposite G, thus suggesting that all three residues play a critical role in early steps of the base extrusion process and likely contribute to destabilization of 5-meC:G pairs. While R903 and M905 are not ...
The presence of 6-methyladenine and 5-methylcytosine at Dam (GATC) and Dcm (CCA/TGG) sites in DNA of mycobacterial species was investigated using isoschizomer restriction enzymes. In all species examined, Dam and Dcm recognition sequences were not methylated indicating the absence of these methyltransferases. On the other hand, high performance liquid chromatographic analysis of genomic DNA from Mycobacterium smegmatis and Mycobacterium tuberculosis showed significant levels of 6-methyladenine and 5-methylcytosine suggesting the presence of DNA methyltransferases other than Dam and Dcm. Occurrence of methylation was also established by a sensitive genetic assay. ...
Covalent modification of DNA distinguishes cellular identities and is crucial for regulating the pluripotency and differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells. The recent demonstration that 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) may be further modified to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) in ES cells has revealed a novel regulatory paradigm to modulate the epigenetic landscape of pluripotency. To understand the role of 5-hmC in the epigenomic landscape of pluripotent cells, here we profile the genome-wide 5-hmC distribution and correlate it with the genomic profiles of 11 diverse histone modifications and six transcription factors in human ES cells. By integrating genomic 5-hmC signals with maps of histone enrichment, we link particular pluripotency-associated chromatin contexts with 5-hmC. Intriguingly, through additional correlations with defined chromatin signatures at promoter and enhancer subtypes, we show distinct enrichment of 5-hmC at enhancers marked with H3K4me1 and H3K27ac. These results suggest potential
The Ten-Eleven Translocation (TET) enzymes comprise a family of three dioxygenases TET 1-3, that depend on iron (II) and 2-oxoglutarate, as cofactors for activity. They convert the methylcytosine into other cytosine derivatives by hydroxylation. The TET enzymes catalyze the sequential oxidations of 5-mC to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) and to 5-formylcytosine (5-fC and 5-carboxycytosine (5-caC), and also the direct conversion to 5-fC and 5-caC from 5-mC. 5-fC and 5-caC could be converted back to cytosine by thymine DNA glycosylase (TDG) in base excision repair, rendering the cytosine completely unmethylated. ...
Methylation at 5-cytosine (5-mC) is a fundamental epigenetic DNA modification associated recently with cardiac disease. In contrast, the role of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) - 5-mCs oxidation product - is unknown in the context of the heart. Here, we assess the hydroxymethylome in embryonic, neonatal, adult and hypertrophic mouse cardiomyocytes, showing that dynamic modulation of hydroxymethylated DNA is associated with specific transcriptional networks during heart development and failure. DNA hydroxymethylation marks gene bodies of highly expressed genes and distal regulatory regions with enhanced activity. Pathological hypertrophy is characterized by a partial shift towards a fetal-like distribution pattern. We further demonstrate a regulatory function of TET2 and provide evidence that the expression of key cardiac genes, such as Myh7 is modulated by TET2-mediated 5-hmC deposition on the gene body and at enhancers in cardiac cells. We thus provide the first genome-wide analysis of 5-hmC in the

Total P16 methylation (P16M), including P16 hydroxymethylation (P16H) and true-P16M, correlates with malignant transformation of oral epithelial dysplasia (OED). Both true-P16M and P16H are early events in carcinogenesis. The aim of this study is to prospectively determine if discrimination of true-P16M from P16H is necessary for prediction of cancer development from OEDs. Patients (n = 265) with mild or moderate OED were recruited into the double blind two-center cohort. Total-P16M and P16H were analyzed using the 115-bp MethyLight, TET-assisted bisulfite (TAB) methylation-specific PCR (MSP), and TAB-sequencing. Total-P16M-positive and P16H-negative samples were defined as true-P16M-positive. Progression of OEDs was monitored for a minimum 24 months follow-up period. P16H was detected in 23 of 73 (31.5%) total-P16M-positive OEDs. Follow-up information was obtained from 247 patients with an ultimate compliance rate of 93.2%. OED-derived squamous cell carcinomas were observed in 13.0% (32/247) patients

Data Availability StatementNot applicable. DNA and RNA methylation, histone modification, noncoding RNA modification and chromatin CALCR rearrangement. In epigenetic modification, DNA methylation and histone modification have been well studied. For example, 5-methylcytosine methylation in DNA has affected gene expression in many tumours. Significant advances have been achieved in recent years in the study of methylated drugs, such as demethylation drugs Decitabine and Azacitidine and histone deacetylase inhibitor Sedamine, which provides additional strategies for treatment of clinical diseases [2, 3]. In addition to DNA and histone methylation, another level of epigenetic regulation, namely, RNA methylation, has become a hot topic in biosciences over the past decade. Common RNA methylation sites include 5-methylcytosine (m5C), 7-methylguanosine (m7G), m1G, m2G, m6G, N1-methyladenosine (m1A) and m6A. m5C modification promotes splicing and translation [4]. m1G, m2G and m1A modifications at the ...

Recent work has identified and mapped a range of posttranscriptional modifications in mRNA, including methylation of the N6 and N1 positions in adenine, pseudouridylation, and methylation of carbon 5 in cytosine (m5C). However, knowledge about the prevalence and transcriptome-wide distribution of m5C is still extremely limited; thus, studies in different cell types, tissues, and organisms are needed to gain insight into possible functions of this modification and implications for other regulatory processes. We have carried out an unbiased global analysis of m5C in total and nuclear poly(A) RNA of mouse embryonic stem cells and murine brain. We show that there are intriguing differences in these samples and cell compartments with respect to the degree of methylation, functional classification of methylated transcripts, and position bias within the transcript. Specifically, we observe a pronounced accumulation of m5C sites in the vicinity of the translational start codon, depletion in coding sequences,

It has been considered that epigenetic modulation can affect a diverse array of cellular activities, in which ten eleven translocation (TET) methylcytosine dioxygenase family members refer to a group of fundamental components involved in catalyzation of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine and modification of gene expression. Even though the function of TET proteins has been gradually revealed, their roles in immune regulation are still largely unknown. Recent studies provided clues that TET2 could regulate several innate immune-related inflammatory mediators in mammals. This study sought to explore the function of TET family members in potential T-helper (Th) cell differentiation involved in adaptive immunity by utilizing a zebrafish model. As shown by results, soluble antigens could induce expression of zebrafish IL-4/13A (i.e. a pivotal Th2-type cytokine essential in Th2 cell differentiation and functions), and further trigger the expression of Th1- and Th2-related genes. It is noteworthy that this ...

Distortions in the DNA sequence, such as damage or mispairs, are specifically recognized and processed by DNA repair enzymes. Many repair proteins and, in particular, glycosylases flip the target base out of the DNA helix into the enzymes active site. Our molecular dynamics simulations of DNA with intact and damaged (oxidized) methyl-cytosine show that the probability of being flipped is similar for damaged and intact methyl-cytosine. However, the accessibility of the different 5-methyl groups allows direct discrimination of the oxidized forms. Hydrogen-bonded patterns that vary between methyl-cytosine forms carrying a carbonyl oxygen atom are likely to be detected by the repair enzymes and may thus help target site recognition.

Re often not methylated (5mC) but hydroxymethylated (5hmC) [80]. However, bisulfite-based methods of cytosine modification detection (including RRBS) are unable to distinguish these two types of modifications [81]. The presence of 5hmC in a gene body may be the GDC-0152 site reason why a fraction of CpG dinucleotides has a significant positive SCCM/E value. Unfortunately, data on genome-wide distribution of 5hmC in humans is available for a very limited set of cell types, mostly developmental [82,83], preventing us from a direct study of the effects of 5hmC on transcription and TFBSs. At the current stage the 5hmC data is not available for inclusion in the manuscript. Yet, we were able to perform an indirect study based on the localization of the studied cytosines in GW433908G site various genomic regions. We tested whether cytosines demonstrating various SCCM/E are colocated within different gene regions (Table 2). Indeed,CpG traffic lights are located within promoters of GENCODE [84] ...

Throughout its lifetime, the DNA in a cell is under constant metabolic and environmental assault leading to damage. The ultraviolet (UV) component of sunlight, ionizing radiation and numerous genotoxic chemicals, including the (by)products of normal cellular metabolism (e.g. reactive oxygen species such as superoxide anions, hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide), constitute a permanent enemy to DNA integrity. Hydrolysis of nucleotide residues leaves non-instructive abasic sites. Spontaneous or induced deamination of cytosine, adenine, guanine or 5-methylcytosine converts these bases to the miscoding uracil, hypoxanthine, xanthine and thymine, respectively. Left unchecked, the resulting genomic instability initiates cancer and other age-related disorders. Inherited or acquired deficiencies in genome maintenance systems contribute significantly to the onset of cancer. Over time, DNA accumulates changes that activate proto-oncogenes and inactivate tumor-suppressor genes. Cells have evolved ...
