Mouse ooplasm confers context-specific reprogramming capacity


ABSTRACT: Enucleated oocytes have the remarkable ability to reprogram somatic nuclei back to totipotency. Here we investigate genome-scale DNA methylation patterns after nuclear transfer and identify specific targets for DNA demethylation as well as NT specific limitations. We find that the ooplasm can confer similar demethylation patterns in both processes except at some repetitive element classes and that germ-line associated promoters are specifically targeted in NT.

Enucleated oocytes have the distinctive ability to reprogram somatic nuclei back to totipotency. Here, we investigate genome-scale DNA methylation patterns after nuclear transfer and compare them to the dynamics at fertilization. We identify specific targets for DNA demethylation after nuclear transfer, such as germline-associated promoters, as well as unique limitations that include certain repetitive element classes. ...[more]
