Comparison of total LINE-1 and Alu element methylation between normal salivary gland tissue and whole MEC tissue. (A, B) The frequency of mC and mCmC of LINE-1 methylation in whole MEC tissue was significantly lower than in normal salivary gland tissue (p<0.001). (C) The frequency of mC of Alu elements in whole MEC tissue was significantly lower than in normal salivary gland tissue (p=0.001). (D) The frequency of uCuC Alu elements in whole MEC tissue was significantly higher than in normal salivary gland tissue (p=0.001).
