Mean percent methylated reference (PMR) of the MLH1 shore. MethyLight was utilized to determine PMR in PBMC, normal colorectal tissue, and colorectal tumour DNA of 349 population-based CRC cases. All cases were genotyped for SNP rs1800734. There were 211 wildtype (GG), 119 heterozygous (GA), and 19 homozygous variant (AA) carriers. a Mean MLH1 shore methylation in each DNA source. b Mean MLH1 shore methylation in each DNA source stratified by genotype of rs1800734. c Mean MLH1 shore methylation for each genotype of rs1800734 stratified by DNA source. *P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01
