Figure 2

Comparison of IFNγ promoter methylation levels by tissue type and CpG site stratified by age. Children <18 years, n = 27, adults ≥18 years, n = 47. Children had significantly higher CD4+ methylation levels at both CpG sites (-186 and -54: P <0.01). The methylation level of buccal cells was also significantly higher in children compared with adults at CpG -186 (P = 0.03) but not CpG -54 (P = 0.66).
