The role of CpG methylation in the regulation of tissue-specific gene expression is highly controversial. Cyclin A1 is a tissue-specifically expressed gene that is strongly methylated in non-expressing tumor cell lines. We have established a novel real-time PCR method to quantitate genomic CpG methylation of the cyclin A1 promoter. Genomic DNA samples from(More)
Dysregulation of CpG-methylation is a common feature of many human cancers and tumour suppressor genes can be silenced by hypermethylation. Recently, 2 methyl-CpG-binding domain proteins have been linked to gene inactivation by their ability to recruit co-repressors and HDAC-activity to methylated gene promoters. Here, we have analysed mRNA expression of(More)
