- The role of differentially methylated regions (DMRs) in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is unclear. This study aimed to identify the role of DMR in NAFLD development and progression using the Korean Genome and Epidemiology Study (KoGES) cohort. We used laboratory evaluations and Illumina Methylation 450 k DNA methylation microarray data from KoGES. The correlation between fatty liver index (FLI) and genomic CpG sites was analyzed in 322 subjects. Longitudinal changes over 8 years were confirmed in 33 subjects. To identify CpG sites and genes related to FLI, we obtained enrichment terms for 6765 genes. DMRs were identified for both high (n = 128) and low (n = 194) groups on the basis of FLI 30 in 142 men and 180 women. To confirm longitudinal changes in 33 subjects, the ratio of follow-up and baseline investigation values was obtained. Correlations and group comparisons were performed for the 8 year change values. PITPNM3, RXFP3, and THRB were hypermethylated in the increased FLI groups, whereas SLC9A2 and FOXI3 were hypermethylated in the decreased FLI groups. DMRs describing NAFLD were determined, and functions related to inflammation were identified. Factors related to longitudinal changes are suggested, and blood circulation-related functions appear to be important in the management of NAFLD.
