Correlation between DNA methylation and murine IFN-gamma and IL-4 expression.


In order to determine the possible role of DNA methylation as a regulatory mechanism for the restricted pattern of lymphokine production among differentiated Th(1)and Th(2)cells, we examined the extent of methylation of the interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) and the interleukin 4 (IL-4) genes in fresh activated murine Th(0), Th(1)and Th(2)cells, unstimulated… (More)
