: Genomic DNA demethylation is important for mammalian embryonic development and organ function. 5-Hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) is considered a novel epigenetic marker. Ten-eleven translocation (TET) enzymes convert 5-methylcytosine (5mC) to 5hmC. To explore the dynamic changes of epigenetic modifications during organogenesis in the late mouse fetus, the regional distribution and histological localization of 5hmC and TET enzymes was investigated by immunohistochemical method. The liver of mouse fetus gradually matured from embryonic day (E) 12.5 to E18.5.5mC was positive in developing liver at E16.5 and E18.5. 5hmC, TET2 and TET3 were strongly positive in hepatocytes and oval cells at E18.5. The small intestinal villi were formed at E16.5. The striate border and goblet cells appeared at E18.5. 5mC was detectable from E12.5 to E18.5. 5hmC and TET2 were positive in small intestine at E12.5, E14.5, and E18.5. The alveolar was formed at E18.5. 5mC and 5hmC were detectable from E12.5 to E18.5. Only TET2 was positive in the lung of the late Kunming mouse fetus. For vertebra, mesenchymal cells formed hyaline cartilage at E15.5 and then ossify at E16.5 and E18.8. 5mC, 5hmC, and TET2 were detectable in chondrocytes and osteocytes during the late Kunming mouse fetal; TET1 expressed from E14.5 to E16.5 and TET3 expressed in bone matrix at E18.5. In summary, TET2 was strongly expressed in liver, small intestinal, lung, and vertebra in the late Kunming mouse fetus. These findings suggested that TET2 may play a more critical role than TET1 and TET3 during organogenesis in the late stage of Kunming mouse embryo.

Development in mammals is accompanied by specific de novo and demethylation events that are thought to stabilize differentiated cell phenotypes. We demonstrate that a large percentage of the tissue-specific methylation pattern is generated postnatally. Demethylation in the liver is observed in thousands of enhancer-like sequences associated with genes that undergo activation during the first few weeks of life. Using. conditional gene ablation strategy we show that the removal of these methyl gro...

Summary Retinoic acid (RA) plays important roles in development, growth, and homeostasis through regulation of the nuclear receptors for RA (RARs). Herein, we identify Hypermethylated in Cancer 1 ( Hic1 ) as an RA-inducible gene. HIC1 encodes a tumor suppressor, which is often silenced by promoter hypermethylation in cancer. Treatment of cells with an RAR agonist causes a rapid recruitment of an RAR/RXR complex consisting of TDG, the lysine acetyltransferase CBP, and TET 1/2 to the Hic1 promoter...

ABSTRACTPatterns of DNA methylation (5-methylcytosine, 5mC) are rearranged during differentiation contributing to the regulation of cell type-specific gene expression. TET proteins oxidize 5mC to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), 5-formylcytosine (5fC), and 5-carboxylcytosine (5caC). Both 5fC and 5caC can be recognized and excised from DNA by thymine-DNA glycosylase (TDG) followed by the subsequent incorporation of unmodified cytosine into the abasic site via the base excision repair (BER) pathway...

The vertebrate small intestine requires an enormous surface area to effectively absorb nutrients from food. Morphological adaptations required to establish this extensive surface include generation of an extremely long tube and convolution of the absorptive surface of the tube into villi and microvilli. In this Review, we discuss recent findings regarding the morphogenetic and molecular processes required for intestinal tube elongation and surface convolution, examine shared and unique aspects o...

: Chemical modifications of DNA comprise epigenetic mechanisms that contribute to the maintenance of cellular activities and memory. Although the function of 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) has been extensively studied, little is known about the function(s) of relatively rarer and underappreciated cytosine modifications including 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC). The discovery that ten-eleven translocation (Tet) proteins mediate conversion of 5-mC to 5-hmC, and other oxidation derivatives, sparked renewe...

There is ample evidence that somatic cell differentiation during development is accompanied by extensive DNA demethylation of specific sites that vary between cell types. Although the mechanism of this process has not yet been elucidated, it is likely to involve the conversion of 5mC to 5hmC by Tet enzymes. We show that a Tet2/Tet3 conditional knockout at early stages of B-cell development largely prevents lineage-specific programmed demethylation events. This lack of demethylation affects the e...

Caveolin-1 is a scaffolding protein involved in the formation of cholesterol-rich caveolae lipid rafts within the plasma membrane and is capable of collecting signaling molecules into the caveolae and regulating their activity, including extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN). However, detailed expression patterns of caveolin-1 and EMMPRIN in the developing dental germ are largely unknown. The present study investigated the expression patterns of caveolin-1 and EMMPRIN in the d...

Regulation of gene expression changes during chondrogenic differentiation by DNA methylation and demethylation is little understood. Methylated cytosines (5mC) are oxidized by the ten-eleven-translocation (TET) proteins to 5-hydroxymethylcytosines (5hmC), 5-formylcytosines (5fC), and 5-carboxylcytosines (5caC), eventually leading to a replacement by unmethylated cytosines (C), ie, DNA demethylation. Additionally, 5hmC is stable and acts as an epigenetic mark by itself. Here, we report that globa...

Abstract The epigenetic regulation of spatiotemporal gene expression is crucial for human development. Here, we present whole-genome chromatin immunoprecipitation followed by high throughput DNA sequencing (ChIP-seq) analyses of a wide variety of histone markers in the brain, heart, and liver of early human embryos shortly after their formation. We identified 40,181 active enhancers, with a large portion showing tissue-specific and developmental stage-specific patterns, pointing to their roles i...

Abstract Objective miR-199a-5p was increased during osteoblast differentiation, which may target and regulate TET2, a gene attracted a lot of attention in the osteoblast differentiation in the past few years. However, the role of miR-199a-5p in osteoblast differentiation by targeting TET2 is not established. Methods The correlation between miR-199a-5p and TET2 was verified through dual luciferase reporter assay, and their expressions in human bone marrow stromal cells (hBMSCs) during the osteobl...
