Differentially methylated IL6 CpGs in chorionic villi associated with IL6 rs1800786 genotype. Unadjusted DNA methylation (β) values are plotted on the y-axis w.r.t the CpGs on the x-axis. Carriers of CC genotype showed increased DNA methylation levels compared to carriers of GG genotype, suggesting DNA methylation levels at these CpG sites are influenced by IL6 genotype. Position of the CpGs are indicated below the boxplots relative to the transcription start site (TSS) (UCSC GRCh37/hg19)
