Fig. 3

Broad, cell type-specific, epigenetic changes at the FMR1 locus in FXS cells. The graphs illustrate the relative enrichment (log2 fold enrichment) of the indicated chromatin marks detected by ChIP (H3K27me3, H3K9me2 and -me3, H4K20me1 and -me3 H3K36me3, H3K4me2, H3K9ac, H4K16ac) and (h)MeDIP (5mC and 5hmC) in FXS (red) and control (blue) fibroblasts. The upper panel illustrates the chromosomal and genomic location (region covering 79 kb on ChrX: 146971000–147050000) as well as the indicated referenced Refseq genes: FMR1 and referenced antisense non coding RNAs (FMR1AS1 and L29074.3). In the graphs, the thicker lines indicate higher deviation between biological replicates (FXS n = 3) (aggregation mean, sliding window 529 bp). ChIP-PCR validation data is available Additional file 4: Figure S3
