Heart tag methylation. A: Tag methylation with chronological aging. Circles are averages of eight tags with red solid dots from the right heart, and blue X's from the left heart. Trend lines (black, all values; red, right heart; blue, left heart) were not significantly different from a level line (linear regression, p values > 0.05). B: Histograms of individual tags comparing individuals before heart growth is largely finished (≤ 5 years of age, gray bars, N = 64, 63, and 37 alleles for CSX, SOX10, and BGN tags) and adults (black bars, N = 161, 143, and 94 alleles for CSX, SOX10, and BGN tags). CSX or SOX10 tag methylation values were significantly higher in adults.
