In Genome Research this week, European researchers used bead arrays and bisulfite sequencing to find methylation changes linked to systemic lupus erythrematosus in pairs of identical twins who were discordant for the autoimmune disease — especially at genes involved in immune function. Their follow-up experiments suggest those with lupus tend to have lower levels of 5-methylcytosine, less methylation at certain genes, and higher expression of these genes.
