DNA methyltransferase 3a expression decreases during apoptosis in primary cultures of hepatocytes.

Abstract

Although it has been acknowledged that DNA methylation is a key factor in the epigenetic control of liver homeostasis, its role in the occurrence of hepatocyte cell death has yet been poorly documented. We therefore have investigated the expression pattern of the effectors of DNA methylation, namely DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) isoenzymes, during Fas… (More)
