Abstract

It has been recently proposed that hypomethylation of DNA induced by 5-azacytidine (5-azaC) leads to reduced chromatid decatenation that ends up in endoreduplication, most likely due to a failure in topo II function [S. Mateos, I. Domínguez, N. Pastor, G. Cantero, F. Cortés, The DNA demethylating 5-azaC induces endoreduplication in cultured Chinese hamster cells, Mutat. Res. 578 (2005) 33-42]. The Chinese hamster mutant cell line EM9 has a high spontaneous frequency of endoreduplication as compared to its parental line AA8. In order to see if this is related to the degree of DNA methylation, we have investigated the basal levels of both endpoints in AA8 and EM9, as well as the effect of extensive 5-azaC-induced demethylation on the production of endoreduplication. Based on the correlation between the levels of DNA methylation and indices of endoreduplication we propose that genomic DNA hypomethylation in EM9 cell line is probably an important factor that bears significance in relation to the high basal level of endoreduplication observed in this cell line
