A Six Months Exercise Intervention Influences the Genome-wide DNA Methylation Pattern in Human Adipose Tissue
CpG sites in the promoter region of A) HDAC4 and B) NCOR2 showed increased DNA methylation in response to exercise as well as decreased mRNA expression (C–D). Knock-downs were verified either by E) Western blot analysis (for Hdac4) or F) by qRT-PCR (for Ncor2). Lipogenesis increased in 3T3-L1 adipocytes where G) Hdac4 (n = 5) or H) Ncor2 (n = 5) had been silenced. Data is presented as mean ± SEM.
