Patterns of DNA methylation are significantly altered in cancers. Interpreting the functional consequences of DNA methylation requires the integration of multiple forms of data. The recent advancement in the next-generation sequencing can help to decode this relationship and in biomarker discovery.
- Functions of DNA methylation: islands, start sites, gene bodies and beyond
- Integrative analysis of DNA methylation and gene expression in papillary renal cell carcinoma
- Reversible promoter methylation determines fluctuating expression of acute phase proteins
Metrics details. Data mining of The Cancer Genome Atlas TCGA data has significantly facilitated cancer genome research and provided unprecedented opportunities for cancer researchers. However, existing web applications for DNA methylation analysis does not adequately address the need of experimental biologists, and many additional functions are often required. The SMART App integrates multi-omics and clinical data with DNA methylation and provides key interactive and customized functions including CpG visualization, pan-cancer methylation profile, differential methylation analysis, correlation analysis and survival analysis for users to analyze the DNA methylation in diverse cancer types in a multi-dimensional manner. All cancers arise as a result of the accumulation of somatic mutations, copy number alterations, and epigenetic modifications that alter transcription and protein expression.

Acute phase reactants APRs are secretory proteins exhibiting large expression changes in response to proinflammatory cytokines. Withdrawal of cytokines, by contrast, results in a rapid recovery of promoter methylation and termination of CRP induction. Further analysis suggests that reversible methylation also regulates the expression of highly inducible genes carrying CpG-poor promoters with APRs as representatives. Therefore, these CpG-poor promoters may evolve CpG-containing TF binding sites to harness dynamic methylation for prompt and reversible responses. Acute phase reactants APRs are liver-produced plasma proteins constituting an integral part of innate defense Gabay and Kushner, ; Medzhitov,
