Sample text

Provides a framework for the design of future experiments. For example, the identification of H3K9ac in post-septic CD4+ T cells correlated with the upregulation of the H3K9ac-specific acetyltransferase, Kat2a. Studies correlating the up- or down-regulation of histone modifying enzymes with their associated histone modifications can provide a mechanism for the epigenetic regulation of genes following sepsis, and provide useful biomarkers of disease severity and for diagnosis of post-septic immunosuppression in patients.

Lyn-Kew K, Rich E, Zeng X, et al (2010) IRAK-M regulates chromatin remodeling in lung macrophages during experimental sepsis. PLoS One 5:e11145 Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Severe Sepsis: Insights from Epigenetics 19. Carson WF, Cavassani KA, Ito T, et al (2010) Impaired CD4+ T-cell proliferation and effector function correlates with repressive histone methylation events in a mouse model of severe sepsis. Eur J Immunol 40: 998 – 1010 20. Cavassani KA, Carson WF 4th, Moreira AP, et al (2010) The post sepsis-induced expansion and enhanced function of regulatory T cells create an environment to potentiate tumor growth.

First, by identifying endogenous epigenetic mechanisms involved with gene silencing, it may be possible to identify new molecular targets (such as histone-modifying enzymes) that may be promising candidates for pharmacological intervention. Second, identification of the epigenetic ‘marks’ associated with the development of CARS and post-septic immunosuppression may provide clinicians with new diagnostic tools for the correct diagnosis of patients at high risk of developing immunosuppression following recovery from severe sepsis.
