DNA methylation biomarkers for lung cancer.
Duarte, United States. In Tumour Biol, 2012
Using sodium-bisulfite-based approaches, 12 CpG islands (associated with the BARHL2, EVX2, IRX2, MEIS1, MSX1, NR2E1, OC2, OSR1, OTX1, PAX6, TFAP2A, and ZNF577 genes) were confirmed to be methylated in 85% to 100% of the squamous cell carcinomas and 11 CpG islands (associated with the CHAD, DLX4, GRIK2, KCNG3, NR2E1, OSR1, OTX1, OTX2, PROX1, RUNX1, and VAX1 genes) were methylated in >80% of the adenocarcinomas.

An intron at the same position also occurs in the Xlim 1 gene as well as in other homeobox genes, such as evx1 and evx2, suggesting that this intron insertion represents an ancestral event, from which homeobox genes of different families originated.
