    FEBS Lett 583:1713-20. 2009
    ..Many of these tissue-specific methylated CGIs localise to regions distal to promoters, the regulatory function of which remains to be determined...

    Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
    PLoS Genet 6:e1001134. 2010
    ..The data indicate that orphan CGIs correspond to previously undetected promoters whose transcriptional activity may play a functional role during development...

    Mol Cell 37:457-68. 2010
    ..Our data argue that MeCP2 may not act as a gene-specific transcriptional repressor in neurons, but might instead dampen transcriptional noise genome-wide in a DNA methylation-dependent manner...
