The genes modulated by CAF secreted factors were characterized by a specific DNA methylation pattern: hypermethylation at transcription start site (TSS) and shore regions. Approximately 60% of them exhibited a methylation-dependent expression level and 20% of them were also dependent on the methyl-CpG-binding protein domain 2. Thus, these specific DNA methylation patterns were linked to an epigenetic control of their expression, upon CAF-secreted factors. We have therefore identified some molecular events defining the responsiveness of groups of genes to stromal cell contents in human breast tumors.
