Figure 4

Relationship between IFNγ promoter methylation at neighboring CpG sites (-186 and -54) stratified by cell type. n = 27 children (clear dots) and n = 47 adults (filled dots). The methylation level was highly correlated between neighboring CpG sites in CD4+ lymphocytes (r = 0.84, P <0.01) and weakly correlated across neighboring CpG sites in buccal cells (r = 0.24, P = 0.04).
