Figure 1 DNA methylation heatmap of normal, adenoma and colorectal carcinoma samples according to the methylation status of age-related CpG sites. From the 353 epigenetic clock CpG sites (cg IDs)[2] significantly differentially methylated in CRC vs normal, adenoma vs normal and CRC vs adenoma comparisons were selected and colonic tissue samples (GSE48684[24]) were classified according to their methylation levels. The analyzed samples are illustrated on X axis, significantly altered CpG sites (cg IDs) are represented on Y axis. DNA methylation intensities (β values) are visualized, red shows hypermethylation, while hypomethylation was marked with green color. CRC: Colorectal carcinoma (light green); Ad: Adenoma (dark blue); N: Normal (light blue).
