Protocadherin-1 is a glucocorticoid-responsive critical regulator of airway epithelial barrier function

Background Impaired epithelial barrier function renders the airway vulnerable to environmental triggers associated with the pathogenesis of bronchial asthma. We investigated the influence of protocadherin-1 (PCDH1), a susceptibility gene for bronchial hyperresponsiveness, on airway epithelial barrier function. Methods We applied transepithelial electric resistance and dextran ...

Evaluating genome-wide DNA methylation changes in mice by Methylation Specific Digital Karyotyping

Background The study of genome-wide DNA methylation changes has become more accessible with the development of various array-based technologies though when studying species other than human the choice of applications are limited and not always within reach. In this study, we adapted and tested the applicability of Methylation Specific Digital Karyotyping (MSDK), a non-array based ...
