Age-related DNA methylation changes are sex-specific: a comprehensive assessment

Figure 4. Identification of sex-specific age-associated variably methylated positions (saVMPs) (A) The approach used to identify saVMPs. (BE) Some examples of saVMPs showing age-associated increase in variability in males (B, C), age-associated decrease in variability in males (D) or age-associated increase in variability in females (E). x axis corresponds to age of subjects, y axis to methylation levels.
