The methylcytosine dioxygenase Tet2 promotes DNA demethylation and activation of cytokine gene expression in T cells.


Epigenetic regulation of lineage-specific genes is important for the differentiation and function of T cells. Ten-eleven translocation (Tet) proteins catalyze 5-methylcytosine (5 mC) conversion to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5 hmC) to mediate DNA demethylation. However, the roles of Tet proteins in the immune response are unknown. Here, we characterized the… (More)
