Table 1 Clinical information, deletion range, and methylation status at SNRPN-DMR in cases enrolled in this study

From: Exploring the unique function of imprinting control centers in the PWS/AS-responsible region: finding from array-based methylation analysis in cases with variously sized microdeletions

  1. PWS Prader-Willi syndrome, AS Angelman syndrome, DMR differentially methylated region, LD large deletion, BP breakpoint
  2. aAge at sample collection (mo months, yr years)
  3. bThe breakpoints were estimated according to the results of aCGH
  4. cThe breakpoints were estimated according to the results of methylation-specific multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MS-MLPA). The locations of BPs are shown in Additional file 2: Figure S1
  5. dMethylation status were examined by MS-MLPA
