GeneDescription In the vertebrate genome, the transfer of a methyl group to the 5' position on cytosine residues located in the dinucleotide CpG is catalyzed by the DNA (cytosine-5)- methyltransferase enzyme (DNA MTase). Mammals encode at least three functional DNA MTases, Dnmt1, Dnmt3a, and Dnmt3b as well as a putative MTase, Dnmt2. Only Dnmt1 is present in abundance in somatic tissues of vertebrates.
GeneFunction Rai et al. (2006) reported that knockdown of Dnmt1 in zebrafish embryos caused defects in terminal differentiation of the intestine, exocrine pancreas, and retina. However, not all tissues require Dnmt1. Proper differentiation is depended on Dnmt1 catalytic activity, as Dnmt1 morphants could be rescued by active zebrafish or human DNMT1 but not by catalytically inactive derivatives. Dnmt1 morphants exhibited dramatic reductions of both genomic cytosine methylation and genome-wide H3K9 trimethyl levels, leading them to investigate the overlap of in vivo functions of Dnmt1 and Suv39h1. They reported that both Dnmt1, the primary maintenance DNA methyltransferase, and Suv39h1, the major H3K9 methyltransferase, direct terminal differentiation within specific organs of zebrafish. They found that zebrafish embryos deficient in either Dnmt1 or Suv39h1 specified the formation of retina, exocrine pancreas, and intestine but failed to complete terminal differentiation within these tissues. In contrast, terminal differentiation of other organs, including endocrine pancreas and liver, appeared unaffected. Phenotypic similarities of Dnmt1 and Suv39h1 knockdown in zebrafish embryos support their cooperative roles in gene regulation during development. They thus proposed that specific DNA and histone methyltransferases work in concert to control the spatial and temporal regulation of transcriptional programs that direct differentiation within specific organs.
