Abstract: AbstractEpigenetic reprogramming has a crucial role in establishing nuclear totipotency in normal development and in cloned animals. In the current study, the method of Real-time fluorescent quantitative PCR (FQ-PCR) was applied to detect Igf2r mRNA in Madin–Darby bovine kidney(MDBK )cells after being treated with 5’-azacytidine (5’-aza, a DNA methyltransferase inhibitor). And then we used the method of Bisulfite DNA Sequencing to detect DNA methylation status of Igf-2r DMR 2(DNA differentially methylated region,DMR)and 3’UTR(3’-untranslated region,UTR)in several tissues, such as brain, liver, lung, and heart in normal and cloned cattle. Results suggested that Igf2r mRNA were up-regulated in MDBK cells after being treated with 5’-aza. DNA methylation at DMR 2 significantly varied in normal cattle tissues but without significant variation at Igf-2r 3¢-UTR. DNA methylation at Igf-2r DMR2 in cloned cattle was markedly altered compared with a normal fetus, while it was similar to a normal fetus at Igf-2r 3¢-UTR. Based on the results, it is suggested that DNA methylation inhibitor down-regulated the expression of Igf-2r in MDBK cells.
