They analysed two differentially methylated regions (DMRs): the IGF2 DMR and the DMR upstream of the neighboring H19 gene (H19 DMR).
Relatively recent genetic and genomic studies of hongerwinter babies have shown differential levels of methylation of the genes for insulin-like growth factor II (IGF2), interleukin 10 (IL-10), and others involved with cholesterol transport and ageing.
From that prior analysis, 442 epigenetic loci were identified that were [+ or -] 1,500 bp of the start and end coordinates for DLX5, H19, IGF2, IGF2-AS, NDN, CPA4, GRB10, ILK, and THSD7A, which had been assessed for associations between placental Cd and DNA methylation.
However, the division neurotrophic effect of CSF components, such as CSF-insulin-like growth factor-2 (IGF2), EOF, FGF-2 and RA acts as a survival and mitogenic factor for oligodendrocyte progenitor cells and promotes glial differentiation protocol.
(47) The fact that children with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) possess genetic abnormalities at imprinting genes including IGF2 and develop Wilms' tumor (48) may also support the notion that an abnormal epigenetic regulation of Igf2 might play an crucial role in kidney tumor development in our model.
A subset of CRCs progresses by methylating tumor-suppressor genes, such as CDKN2A (encoding p16 tumor suppressor protein) and insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2), and DNA repair genes, such as O-6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase gene (MGMT) and MLH1.
It is also modulated posttranslationally by RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) which bind to IGF2 transcripts and mediate their processing, such as localization, stability, and translation [4, 5].
In the hepatocarcinogenesis of PBC&PSC in Figure 4, we also identified ten genes having differences in expression between PBC&PSC and HCC, i.e., HIST2H2BE (p value [less than or equal to] 1.00 x [10.sup.-3]), RFC5 (p value [less than or equal to] 1.00 x [10.sup.-3]), TIMP1 (p value [less than or equal to] 1.00 x [10.sup.-3]), ZNF480 (p value [less than or equal to] 1.00 x [10.sup.-3]), H3F3A (p value [less than or equal to] 1.00 x [10.sup.-3]), RPL30 (p value [less than or equal to] 1.00 x [10.sup.-3]), FRAT2 (p value [less than or equal to] 1.00 x [10.sup.-3]), ALDOB (p value < 7.2 x [10.sup.-2]), IGF2 (p value < 1.07 x [10.sup.-1]), and RPL23A (p value [less than or equal to] 1.00 x [10.sup.-3]).
