Coordinate regulation of Igf-2 and H19 in cultured cells

The insulin-like growth factor 2 (Igf-2) and H19 genes are physically linked on mouse distal chromosome 7 and are reciprocally imprinted. We investigated the molecular basis of the parental imprints in somatic cell cultures derived from normal embryos or from their littermates with maternal uniparental disomy for distal chromosome 7 (MatDi7). In normal cells, the two genes appeared to respond to similar regulatory factor(s), since both genes were coordinately up-regulated upon growth arrest and cell clones which had lost expression of one gene had lost expression of the other. However, in a clone of MatDi7 cells (MatDi7 1-1a), which spontaneously began to express the maternally derived copy of Igf-2, Igf-2 and H19 were not coordinately regulated. MatDi7 1-1a cells showed de novo methylation of sites upstream of Igf-2 and also within the H19 promoter, epigenetic modifications normally seen only on the paternal chromosome. The data provide new experimental evidence for previously hypothesized mechanisms suggesting that Igf-2 and H19 are coordinately regulated.
