Abstract

Background: Methylation of HPV16 DNA is a promising biomarker for triage of HPV positive cervical screening samples but the biological basis for the association between HPV-associated neoplasia and increased methylation is unclear. Objectives: To determine whether HPV16 DNA methylation was associated with viral integration, and investigate the relationships between viral DNA methylation, integration and gene expression. Study design: HPV16 DNA methylation, integration and gene expression were assessed using pyrosequencing, ligation-mediated PCR and QPCR, in biopsies from 25 patients attending a specialist vulval neoplasia clinic and in short-term clonal cell lines derived from vulval and vaginal neoplasia. Results: Increased methylation of the HPV16 L1/L2 and E2 regions was associated with integration of viral DNA into the host genome. This relationship was observed both in vivo and in vitro. Increased methylation of E2 binding sites did not appear to be associated with greater expression of viral early genes. Expression of HPV E6 and E7 did not correlate with either integration state or increased L1/L2 methylation. Conclusions: The data suggest that increased HPV DNA methylation may be partly attributable to viral integration, and provide a biological rationale for quantification of L1/L2 methylation in triage of HPV positive cervical screening samples.
