The effects of LPS on DNMT gene expression.

<p>Expression of genes that encode the enzymes responsible for methylating CpG sites of DNA were quantified by qRT-PCR including the maintenance methyltransferase DNMT1 and the <i>de novo</i> methyltransferase DNMT3a in moDCs in response to LPS exposure (24 h) compared with control. The results were combined from three independent experiments and each experiment was performed in triplicate. The data were represented as the mean ± standard deviations (SD) (* <i>P</i> < 0.05; ** <i>P</i> < 0.01).</p>
