Correlation analysis of tDMRs and gene expression for methylations in the CGI-promoter and gene body regions. (a) tDMR genes with low expression show high levels of methylation at CGI-promoter. (b) Gene body methylation in tDMRs is not correlated with gene expression. (a, b) The x-axis shows DNA methylation beta values, and the y-axis shows gene expression values. The different tissues studied are represented by the following symbols: aorta (•), coronary artery (●), bladder (), bone and joint cartilage (), bone marrow (), lymph node (), medulla oblongata (+), and tonsils (×).
