Visualization and analysis of hypermethylated CpG sites in TAPBP promoter.

a The chromosome positions of hypermethylated CpG sites show that DMCs are located at chr6 (p21.32), which is in the region of TSS1500 (pink square) of TAPBP and at the location of CpG island 31. b Methylation levels of eight CpG sites in PPAT from OB/OW and NW PCa patients have shown a significant difference. c Correlation analysis shows strong correlation (Spearman correlation coefficient r2 0.73~ 0.97) between the eight hypermethylated CpG sites based on the mean β value difference of individual probes
