  1. Data presented as mean (standard deviation). Analysis of variance testing between the different tissue groups. Bonferroni correction was applied to all P values to adjust for multiple comparisons. DMR differentially methylated region; MNC mononuclear cells.
  2. P <0.05 versus pooled MNC (pairwise comparisons).
  3. * P <0.05 versus placenta (pairwise comparisons).
