Table 1 Methylation frequencies in breast cancer

From: Identification of 5 novel genes methylated in breast and other epithelial cancers

  CIDE-A DBC1 EMILIN2 FBLN2 SALL1
Cell lines 7/8 (88%) 2/6 (34%) 5/9 (56%) 3/5 (60%) 4/6 (67%)
Tumours 21/40 (53%) 8/31 (26%) 16/36 (45%) 13/38 (34%) 25/40 (63%)
Matched pairs 7/15 (47%) 4/16 (25%) 4/10 (40%) 6/19 (32%) 10/20 (50%)*
  1. Frequencies of methylation in breast cancer cell lines, primary breast tumours and matched breast tumour/normal pair samples are shown for EMILIN2, SALL1, DBC1, FBLN2 and CIDE-A. All tumour/normal pair figures represent the number of pairs that show tumour specific methylation, (*) indicates that one of these pairs also showed methylation in the corresponding normal.
