From: Genome-wide methylation profiling identified novel differentially hypermethylated biomarker MPPED2 in colorectal cancer

Fig. 6

DNA methylation level of MPPED2 examined by pyrosequencing in validation phase. a Methylation level of MPPED2 in colorectal lesions (hyperplastic polyps, adenoma, and carcinoma) and paired normal tissues. All the three groups showed significant difference (P < 0.05). b Bean plots representing methylation levels of MPPED2 in low-risk normal mucosa, high-risk normal mucosa, hyperplastic polyp, adenoma, and CRC. The distributions of individual observations are shown as small horizontal lines in each scatter plot together with density distribution (diamond-shaped profile), mean value of each group subset (solid horizontal line), and overall mean value (solid horizontal line across all subsets). *P < 0.05; ***P < 0.001. HP-N, hyperplastic polyp surrounding normal tissue; HP, hyperplastic polyp; AD-N, adenoma surrounding normal tissue; AD, adenoma; CA-N, CRC surrounding normal tissue; CA, primary CRC. LRN, low-risk normal tissue; HRN, high-risk normal tissue
