Effects of Downregulating DNA Methyltransferase 1 Transcript by RNA Interference on DNA Methylation Status of the Satellite I Region and In Vitro Development of Bovine Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer Embryos
Journal of reproduction and development
For the successful production of cloned animals by somatic cell nuclear transfer (NT), the epigenetic status of the differentiated donor cell is reversed to an embryonic totipotent status. However, in NT embryos, this process is aberrant, with genomic hypermethylation consistently observed. Here, we investigated the effects of silencing DNA methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) mRNA by small interfering RNA (siRNA) on the DNA methylation status of the satellite I region and in vitro development of bovinedoi:10.1262/jrd.10-181a pmid:21343670 fatcat:gs6tocpxuvfnxer3kpocudt32e
