Abstract: The intranuclear disposition of exogenous DNA is quite important for the therapeutic effects of the administered DNA. The expression efficiency from one copy of exogenous DNA delivered by hydrodynamics-based injection dramatically decreases over time, and this ‘silencing’ occurs without CpG methylation. In this study, naked luciferase-plasmid DNA was delivered into mouse liver by hydrodynamics-based injection, and modifications of the histones bound to the plasmid DNA were analyzed by a chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) analysis. In addition, the effects of a second hydrodynamics-based injection on the expression from the plasmid DNA were examined. The ChIP analysis revealed that the modification status of histone H3 remained constant from 4 hr to 4 weeks. Surprisingly, the injection of saline without DNA enhanced the luciferase expression from the preexisting DNA administered 4 and 14 days previously. Our results suggest that histone modification plays no role in the silencing. Instead, our data suggest that the transgene expression is activated by the hydrodynamics-based injection manipulation, and that the return from the activated status causes the silencing.
