Down-regulation of promoter methylation
level of CD4 gene after MDV infection in MD-susceptible chicken line.
Understanding the nutritional biochemistry in methylation
can aid treatment plans by creating a protocol more likely to benefit the patient.
In recent years, a growing body of evidence suggested that the state of DNA methylation
, an epigenetic modification that plays crucial roles in gene regulation and genomic stability (Jones 2012), was closely related to age over long time periods (Christensen et al.
Epigenetic regulation such as DNA methylation
is a regulatory process that depends on stochastic and environmental stimuli; it is a process usually associated with gene repression that, in mammals, occurs mainly at cytosine residues located within CpG islands (9).
is a well-established and extensively studied epigenetic phenomenon [1-4].
According to the researchers at the University of North Carolina, the reason for this effect could be explained by DNA methylation
of genes in breast cancer tumours or peripheral blood.
For CRC development, DNA methylation
is accepted as third underlying mechanism after CIN and MSI.
We recently suggested that epigenetic modifications, such as DNA methylation
, might explain discrepant association signals sometimes obtained in studies on human patellar tendinopathy (El Khoury et al., 2018).

Several factors can play a part in the development of CHD such as genetic susceptibility, epigenetic mechanism and environmental effects.1 Among these factors DNA methylation
is much known to be associated with CHD, that take place during pregnancy.
The purpose of this study was to conduct a genome-wide screening of aberrant methylation
loci in partial lesion tissues of patients with nonsyndromic CL (NSCL) and preliminarily validate candidate dysmethylated genes associated with NSCL.
