Targeted-bisulfite sequence analysis of the methylation of CpG islands in genes encoding PNPLA3, SAMM50, and PARVB of patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Kyoto, Japan. In J Hepatol, Aug 2015
METHODS: We performed targeted-bisulfite sequencing to determine the levels of DNA methylation of 4 CpG islands (CpG99, CpG71, CpG26, and CpG101) in the regulatory regions of PNPLA3, SAMM50, PARVB variant 1, and PARVB variant 2, respectively.

When χ(2) test was applied to the number of individuals carrying the variant risk alleles between the control and NAFLD group, a significant association was seen between rs738409 of the patatin-like phospholipase domain containing 3 (PNPLA3) gene (P = 0.001), rs2073080 of the PARVB gene (P = 0.02), rs2143571 of SAMM50 gene (P = 0.05) and rs6487679 of the pregnancy zone protein (PZP) gene (P = 0.01) with the disease.
Genome-wide scan revealed that polymorphisms in the PNPLA3, SAMM50, and PARVB genes are associated with development and progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in Japan.

Rs2896019, and rs381062 in the PNPLA3 gene, rs738491, rs3761472, and rs2143571 in the SAMM50 gene, rs6006473, rs5764455, and rs6006611 in the PARVB gene had also significant P values (<2.0 × 10(-10)) and high odds ratios (1.84-2.02).
NCI60 cancer cell line panel data and RNAi analysis help identify EAF2 as a modulator of simvastatin and lovastatin response in HCT-116 cells.

After correction of the p-values for multiple testing using False Discovery Rate, our results identified three genes (NRP1, COL13A1, MRPS31) and six genes (EAF2, ANK2, AKAP7, STEAP2, LPIN2, PARVB) associated with resistance to simvastatin and lovastatin, respectively.

Both alpha-parvin (PARVA) and beta-parvin (PARVB) localize to focal adhesions and function in cell adhesion, spreading, motility and survival through interactions with partners, such as integrin-linked kinase (ILK), paxillin, alpha-actinin and testicular kinase 1.
