BACKGROUND Recent genome-wide DNA methylation studies have found a pronounced difference in methylation of the F2RL3 gene (also known as PAR-4) in blood DNA according to smoking exposure. Knowledge on the variation of F2RL3 methylation by various degrees of smoking exposure is still very sparse. OBJECTIVES We aimed to assess dose-response relationships of current and lifetime active smoking exposure with F2RL3 methylation. METHODS In a large population-based study, we quantified blood DNA… CONTINUE READING
