Allele-specific Methylation of Human Placental Tissue

ABSTRACT: In this study, we screened human placental samples for allele-specific methylation and subsequently novel imprinted genes associated with these regions. We used reduced representation bisulfite sequencing to identify partially methylated CpG islands (CGIs) in the human placental genome. We were able to delineate potential candidates for allele-specific methylation based on the calculation of a concordance statistic. Amongst the 28 regions chosen for validation based on high levels of expression, two regions were shown to exhibit allele-specific expression.

Genomic imprinting is an epigenetically regulated process wherein genes are expressed in a parent-of-origin specific manner. Many imprinted genes were initially identified in mice; some of these were subsequently shown not to be imprinted in humans. Such discrepancy reflects developmental, morphological and physiological differences between mouse and human tissues. This is particularly relevant for the placenta. Study of genomic imprinting thus needs to be carried out in a species and developmen  ...[more]
