Figure 1

SLC6A4 CpG island amplicons for DNA methylation analysis. Analyzed CpG Units are numbered from 1 to 26. The untranslated exon spans CpG Units 12 to 15 and 5-HTTLPR is located upstream of the CpG island. Asterisks show the CpG Units belonging to Factors 1, 2, and 3 (F1 to F3). F1 factor loadings ranged from .35 to .83, F2 factor loadings ranged from .37 to .76, and F3 factor loadings ranged from .73 to .87.
