23775149 altered DNA methylation at imprinted domains including IGF2/H19 and PEG1/MEST may mediate the association between human papillomavirus infection and invasive cervical cancer
23415968 Paternal methylation aberrations at imprinting control regions of DLK1-GTL2, MEST (PEG1), and ZAC (PLAGL1) and global methylation levels are not associated with idiopathic recurrent spontaneous miscarriages.
23343754 DNA methylation level at the H19 and MEST differentially methylated regions (DMRs)is reduced in placentas from pregnancies conceived by IVF/ICSI when compared with placentas from spontaneous conception.
23229728 The expression levels of miR-335 significantly correlated with those of MEST, supporting the notion that the intronic miR-335 is co-expressed with its host gene
23209187 These results support the idea that intrauterine exposure to gestational diabetes mellitus has long-lasting effects on the epigenome of the offspring.
22531794 MEST showed tissue-specific imprinting, being paternally expressed in skeletal muscle, fat, pituitary gland, heart, kidney, lung, stomach and uterus, and maternally expressed in spleen and liver.
22456293 In cortices, the MEST promoter was hemimethylated, as expected for a differentially methylated imprinting control region, whereas the COPG2 and TSGA14 promoters were completely demethylated, typical for transcriptionally active non-imprinted genes.
22249249 Data indicate that ARMCX2, COL1A1, MDK, MEST and MLH1 genes acquired methylation in drug-resistant ovarian cancer-sustaining (side population) cells.
21575949 Regardless of conception method, the PEG1 methylation percentage in chorionic villus from spontaneous abortions is significantly higher than in villus from induced abortions and multifetal reduction.
