Global loss of DNA methylation uncovers intronic enhancers in genesshowing expression changes

Gene expression is epigenetically regulated by a combination of histone modifications and methylation of CpG dinucleotides in promoters. In normal cells, CpG-rich promoters are typically unmethylated, marked with histone modifications such as H3K4me3, ... [Published 7thSpace - Sep 20 2014]

...abiotic and biotic stress responses, DNA double-strand break repair, and plant development have been demonstrated," they state in the article. "These advancements in basic research have greatly increased our knowledge of plant ncRNAs and facilitated the effective design of ncRNA-based strategies for crop improvement. ncRNAs function by repressing the expression of endogenous or exogenous genes at the transcriptional, post-transcriptional, or translational levels in a sequence-specific manner … [and] can be used to specifically control the expression of target genes."

...Cecil, lead author of the study, from the InstituteInstitute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King's College London says: "We were particularly interested in studying the oxytocin receptor gene, often referred to as the 'love hormone'. We know from previous studies that higher levels of DNA methylation in this gene relate to lower levels of oxytocin in the body. In turn, Oxytocin, has been shown to promote prosocial behaviour, such as empathy, trust, attachment and bonding, which are typically impaired in youth with CU traits. " The reers found that in youth with low levels of anxiety/depression, CU traits at 13 were associated with higher DNA methylation at the oxytocin receptor...
