Table 6 Distribution of CGIs over the gene association classes

From: Profile analysis and prediction of tissue-specific CpG island methylation classes

Gene association class Location of CGI # CGI (%)
Pseudogene Within 1.5 kb of a pseudogene 62 (12.53)
TSS Overlapping TSS 146 (29.49)
Promoter Overlapping extended promoter region, (1.5 kb upstream of the TSS to end of the 5'UTR) 178 (35.96)
3'UTR Overlapping 3' UTR and may overlap CDS 12 (2.42)
CDS Overlapping protein coding region 51 (10.30)
Intron Lies entirely within an Intron (excluding 3' and 5' UTRs) 29 (5.86)
NA Outside of the gene environment 17 (3.43)
