Comparison of the frequency of total LINE-1 methylation (mC) and uCuC of LINE-1s among MEC cell subtypes. (A) The frequency of mC of LINE-1s among MEC cell subtypes showed a stepwise decrease from normal cells (N) to intermediate cells (I), mucous cells (M) and squamous cells (S). The p‐value between each group is shown in the table above the graph. (B) The frequency of uCuC of LINE-1s among cell types showed a stepwise increase from normal cells to intermediate cells, mucous cells and squamous cells. The p‐value between each group is shown in the table above the graph.
