Inheritance Patterns and Stability of DNA Methylation Variation in Maize Near-Isogenic Lines

Li, Qing; Eichten, Steven; Hermanson, Peter J; Springer, Nathan M


DNA methylation is a chromatin modification that contributes to epigenetic regulation of gene expression. The inheritance patterns and trans-generational stability of 962 differentially methylated regions (DMRs) were assessed in a panel of 71 near-isogenic lines (NILs) derived from maize (Zea mays) inbred lines B73 and Mo17. The majority of DMRs exhibit inheritance patterns that would be expected for local (cis) inheritance of DNA methylation variation such that DNA methylation level was...[Show more]
