Title: Epigenome analysis of normal and preeclamptic placenta samples      
dateReleased:
05-20-2014
description:
Preeclampsia (PE), a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy, is hypothesized to be associated with, if not mechanistically related to abnormal placental function. However, the exact mechanisms regulating the pathogenesis of PE remain unclear. While many studies have investigated changes in gene expression in the PE placenta, the role of epigenetics in PE associated placental dysfunction remains unclear. Using the genome-wide Illumina Infinium Methylation 450 BeadChip array, we analyzed gene-specific alterations in DNA methylation in placental biopsies collected from normal pregnant women delivering at term (n=14), with term PE (≥37 weeks; n=19) or with preterm PE (<37 weeks, n=12). Of the 485,582 gene loci on the array, compared to controls, 229 loci were differentially methylated in PE placentas and 3411 loci were differentially methylated in preterm PE (step up p-value <0.05 and >5% methylation difference). Functional annotation of the differentially methylated genes in preterm PE placentas revealed a 32 gene cluster in the cadherin and cell adhesion functional groups (Benjamini p<0.00001). Hypermethylation of CDH11 (p=0.0143), COL5A1 (p=0.0127) and TNF (p=0.0098) and hypomethylation of NCAM1 (p=0.0158) was associated with altered mRNA expression in preterm PE placentas. These studies demonstrate aberrant methylation, correlating with disease severity, in PE placentas. Bisulphite converted DNA from the 45 samples were hybridised to the Illumina Infinium 450k Human Methylation Beadchip v1.2
