AIM To investigate the methylation status of the deleted in azoospermia 1 (DAZ1) gene promoter region in different cell types. METHODS Using CpG island Searcher software, a CpG island was found in the promoter region of the DAZ1 gene. The methylation status of this region was analyzed in sperm and leukocytes by bisulfited sequencing. RESULTS The methylation status of the CpG island in the DAZ1 gene promoter region differed in leukocytes and sperm: it was methylated in leukocytes, but… CONTINUE READING
