    • Birth weight-for-gestational age is associated with DNA methylation at birth and in childhood 

      Agha, Golareh; Hajj, Hanine; Rifas-Shiman, Sheryl L.; Just, Allan C.; Hivert, Marie-France; Burris, Heather H.; Lin, Xihong; Litonjua, Augusto A.; Oken, Emily; DeMeo, Dawn L.; Gillman, Matthew W.; Baccarelli, Andrea A. (BioMed Central, 2016)
      Background: Both higher and lower fetal growth are associated with cardio-metabolic health later in life, suggesting that prenatal developmental programming determines long-term cardiovascular disease risk. Epigenetic ...
    • funtooNorm: an R package for normalization of DNA methylation data when there are multiple cell or tissue types 

      Oros Klein, Kathleen; Grinek, Stepan; Bernatsky, Sasha; Bouchard, Luigi; Ciampi, Antonio; Colmegna, Ines; Fortin, Jean-Philippe; Gao, Long; Hivert, Marie-France; Hudson, Marie; Kobor, Michael S.; Labbe, Aurelie; MacIsaac, Julia L.; Meaney, Michael J.; Morin, Alexander M.; O’Donnell, Kieran J.; Pastinen, Tomi; Van Ijzendoorn, Marinus H.; Voisin, Gregory; Greenwood, Celia M.T. (Oxford University Press, 2015)
      Motivation: DNA methylation patterns are well known to vary substantially across cell types or tissues. Hence, existing normalization methods may not be optimal if they do not take this into account. We therefore present ...

      Yaghootkar, Hanieh; Scott, Robert A.; White, Charles C.; Zhang, Weihua; Speliotes, Elizabeth; Munroe, Patricia B.; Ehret, Georg B.; Bis, Joshua C.; Fox, Caroline S.; Walker, Mark; Borecki, Ingrid B.; Knowles, Joshua W.; Yerges-Armstrong, Laura; Ohlsson, Claes; Perry, John R.B.; Chambers, John C.; Kooner, Jaspal S.; Franceschini, Nora; Langenberg, Claudia; Hivert, Marie-France; Dastani, Zari; Richards, J. Brent; Semple, Robert K.; Frayling, Timothy M. (American Diabetes Association, 2014)
      The mechanisms that predispose to hypertension, coronary artery disease (CAD), and type 2 diabetes (T2D) in individuals of normal weight are poorly understood. In contrast, in monogenic primary lipodystrophy—a reduction ...

    • Higher maternal leptin levels at second trimester are associated with subsequent greater gestational weight gain in late pregnancy 

      Lacroix, Marilyn; Battista, Marie-Claude; Doyon, Myriam; Moreau, Julie; Patenaude, Julie; Guillemette, Laetitia; Ménard, Julie; Ardilouze, Jean-Luc; Perron, Patrice; Hivert, Marie-France (BioMed Central, 2016)
      Background: Excessive gestational weight gain (GWG) is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. In non-pregnant populations, low leptin levels stimulate positive energy balance. In pregnancy, both the placenta and adipose ...
    • Leptin and adiponectin DNA methylation levels in adipose tissues and blood cells are associated with BMI, waist girth and LDL-cholesterol levels in severely obese men and women 

      Houde, Andrée-Anne; Légaré, Cécilia; Biron, Simon; Lescelleur, Odette; Biertho, Laurent; Marceau, Simon; Tchernof, André; Vohl, Marie-Claude; Hivert, Marie-France; Bouchard, Luigi (BioMed Central, 2015)
      Background: Leptin (LEP) and adiponectin (ADIPOQ) genes encode adipokines that are mainly secreted by adipose tissues, involved in energy balance and suspected to play a role in the pathways linking adiposity to impaired ...
