Effect of betaine supplemented-diet on Hepatic expression of the methyl transfer genes. a) mRNA expression of BHMT, GNMT, and DNMT1; b) Protein expression of BHMT, GNMT, and DNMT1; c) Hepatic SAM concentration; d) Hepatic SAH concentration e) SAM/ SAH ratio. Values are means ± SEM, *P < 0.05, compared with control (n = 8). BHMT, betaine homocysteine methyltransferase; GNMT, glycine N-methyltransferase; DNMT1, DNA (cytosine-5-)-methyltransferase 1; SAM, S-adenosylmethionine; SAH, S-adenosylhomocysteine
