Elucidating the molecular mechanism of TET2 function in hematopoiesis

Abstract:

DNA modifications are epigenetic marks deposited throughout the mammalian genome and play an important role in gene regulation in normal and malignant biological processes. Biological DNA modifications are introduced by DNA methyltransferases (DNMT) and dioxygenases of ten- eleven translocation (TET) family. DNMT proteins can convert cytosine into 5-methylcytosine. TET proteins catalyze the oxidation of 5mC to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine, 5-formylcytosine and 5-carboxylcytosine. These oxidized...
