Identification of differentially methylated regions between placentas and maternal blood cells on chromosome 18

ABSTRACT: Comparison of DNA methylation levels of chromosome 18 between placentas and blood cells of pregnant women Extracted DNA from 5 cases of placental tissues and 5 cases of maternal blood cell was subjected to MeDIP (methylated DNA immunoprecipitation) and hybridized to Affymetrix GeneChip® Human Tiling 2.0R Array sets. A control without immunoprecipitation (IP) was also processed in parallel with the immunoprecipitated DNA samples. The results were validated with bisulfite sequencing and mass spectrometry-based analysis

BACKGROUND: Noninvasive prenatal diagnosis of fetal aneuploidy by maternal plasma analysis is challenging owing to the low fractional and absolute concentrations of fetal DNA in maternal plasma. Previously, we demonstrated for the first time that fetal DNA in maternal plasma could be specifically targeted by epigenetic (DNA methylation) signatures in the placenta. By comparing one such methylated fetal epigenetic marker located on chromosome 21 with another fetal genetic marker located on a refe  ...[more]
