Abstract

Severe hypomethylation of the H19 imprinted control region (ICR1) in two patients with Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS) who have genital malformations has encouraged us to study DNA methylation in a cohort of 83 patients with Müllerian aplasia (MA). Site-specific methylation analyses of H19 ICR1 by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction in 80 clinically well-diagnosed Finnish MA patients showed no association between hypomethylation and the MA phenotype, but studies of the H19 locus in 38 patients showed aberrant methylation in 3/16 studied sites.
