Table 1 Frequency (expressed as percentages %) of different DNA methylation states (i.e., unmethylated, hemimethylated, internal cytosine methylation and hypermethylation) at target sequences across different age groups in H. reidi

From: Dynamic changes in DNA methylation during seahorse (Hippocampus reidi) postnatal development and settlement

Target state (band pattern) 1 DAR 5 DAR 10 DAR 20 DAR 30 DAR 40 DAR
Unmethylated (HPA+/MSP+) 9.61 18.28 25.33 39.71 41.98 43.30
Hemimethylated (HPA+/MSP-) 6.0 10.25 12.35 11.70 10.66 10.39
Internal C methylation (HPA−/MSP+) 35.63 44.10 39.11 17.53 18.02 14.29
Hypermethylation (HPA−/MSP−) 47.76 27.37 23.21 31.06 29.34 32.02
