Figure 1

A schematic illustration for the CpG sites in a promoter region of MAOA gene assayed in this study in relation to the MAOA-uVNTR variant. The sequence shown represents a 75 bp fragment (−749 to −675 with respect to TSS) in the 5-UTR of MAOA. Numbers 1–7 refer to locations of the CpG sites assayed in this study. TSS: Transcriptional Start Site; ATG: Translational Start Codon.
