DNA methylation in cancer development, diagnosis and therapy-multiple opportunities for genotoxic agents to act as methylome disruptors or remediatorsPublikacja
The role of DNA methylation and recently discovered hydroxymethylation in the function of the human epigenome is currently one of the hottest topics in the life sciences. Progress in this field of research has been further accelerated by the discovery that alterations in the methylome are not only associated with key functions of cells and organisms, such as development, differentiation and gene expression, but may underlie a number...
Transcriptional activity of epigenetic remodeling genes declines in keratinocytes after in vitro expansionPublikacja
PURPOSE: In vitro expansion is an invaluable method to obtain keratinocytes in amounts necessary for effective transplantation therapies. In vitro cell culturing provokes questions concerning potential epigenetic alterations occurring in expanded cells in the context of usefulness for transplantation and safety. The purpose of this study was to investigate as to whether keratinocyte expansion is associated with changes in the activity...
Atopic dermatitis is a heterogeneous disease, in which the pathogenesis is associated with mutations in genes encoding epidermal structural proteins, barrier enzymes, and their inhibitors; the role of genes regulating innate and adaptive immune responses and environmental factors inducing the disease is also noted. Recent studies point to the key role of epigenetic changes in the development of the disease. Epigenetic modifications...
