Abstract

Epigenetic regulation including DNA methylation plays an important role in several differentiation processes. We profiled global DNA methylation in the neural differentiation of P19 embryonic carcinoma cells using a microarray-based method called MIAMI. We found a genome-wide demethylation of genes. This suggests demethylation rather than methylation is important in neural differentiation.
