Abstract

Background: Arsenic is a well-documented carcinogen of human urothelial carcinoma (UC) with incompletely understood mechanisms. Objectives: This study aimed to compare the genome-wide DNA methylation profiles of arsenic-induced UC (AsUC) and non-arsenic-induced UC (Non-AsUC), and to assess associations between site-specific methylation levels and cumulative arsenic exposure. Methods: Genome-wide DNA methylation profiles in 14 AsUC and 14 non-AsUC were analyzed by Illumina Infinium methylation27 BeadChip and validated by bisulfite pyrosequencing. Mean methylation levels (β-) in AsUC and non-AsUC were compared by their ratio (β- ratio) and difference (δβ-). Associations between site-specific methylation levels in UC and cumulative arsenic exposure were examined. Results: Among 27,578 methylation sites analyzed, 231 sites had β- ratio >2 or 0.2 or
