Rat MeDIP Array, naïve, epileptic, and adenosine treated

ABSTRACT: Epilepsy causes altered gene expression; transient adenosine treatment inhibits progression of epileptogenesis Hippocampus of epileptic rat is hypermethylated compared to naïve; adenosine treatment causes hypomethylation Metylation state in epileptic rats (9 weeks post kainic acid induced status epilepticus) was compared to naïve (untreated) rats and epileptic rats treated with adenosine for 5 days

Epigenetic modifications, including changes in DNA methylation, lead to altered gene expression and thus may underlie epileptogenesis via induction of permanent changes in neuronal excitability. Therapies that could inhibit or reverse these changes may be highly effective in halting disease progression. Here we identify an epigenetic function of the brain's endogenous anticonvulsant adenosine, showing that this compound induces hypomethylation of DNA via biochemical interference with the transme  ...[more]
