mRNA expression profiles of genes associated with DMRs during DC differentiation. Microarray expression levels of genes showing DC-specific CpG demethylation are displayed as a heat map. Blue, white and red represent low, medium and high expression, respectively. Data of two (DC day 7), three (DC 6 to 66 h) or six monocyte (MO) independent donors were averaged and normalized to monocyte samples. Distances from transcription start sites (TSSs) of neighboring genes, chromosomal locations (NCBI build 35/hg17) of the central DMR microarray probes and CpG as well as GC content in a 500-bp window are given on the right.
