AbstractThe purpose of the present study was to understand the tissue specificity of DNA methylation and the relationship between methylation and expression of genes with essential roles in neurodevelopment and brain function. We chose dopamine receptor genes (DRD1 and DRD2), NCAM, and COMT as examples of genes with CpG islands around the promoter region, and serotonin receptor genes (HTR2A and HTR3A), HCRT, and DRD3 as genes without CpG islands. Methylation states were investigated in fetal… Expand
