A cross-study analysis of prenatal exposures to environmental contaminants and the epigenome: support for stress-responsive transcription factor occupancy as a mediator of gene-specific CpG methylation patterning

Elizabeth M. Martin and Rebecca C. Fry.

in Environmental Epigenetics

P ublished online January 2016 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Molecular Biology and Genetics; Biological Sciences; Developmental Biology; Evolutionary Biology; Genetics and Genomics. 5869 words.
