Methylation profiling of normal and cancerous human breast samples

ABSTRACT: To assess changes in DNA methylation state associated with breast cancer we analyzed DNA from normal and cancerous breast specimens on CpG islands microarray using methylation-sensitive enzyme McrBC for target preparation. Cy3 was used for McrBC cut sample, Cy5 was used for reference Mock sample.

Using an integrated approach of epigenomic scanning and gene expression profiling, we found aberrant methylation and epigenetic silencing of a small neighborhood of contiguous genes-the HOXA gene cluster in human breast cancer. The observed transcriptional repression was localized to approximately 100 kb of the HOXA gene cluster and did not extend to genes located upstream or downstream of the cluster. Bisulfite sequencing, chromatin immunoprecipitation, and quantitative reverse transcription-PC  ...[more]
