Role for tissue-dependent methylation differences in the expression of FOXE1 in non-tumoral thyroid glands (JCEM 2014)

The main outcome of the present study supports the concept that DNA methylation plays a role in the differential expression of the thyroid transcription factor FOXE1 in normal leukocytes (cells that do not express FOXE1) and in the thyroid, a tissue that abundantly expresses FOXE1.
