Maternal Plasma Folate and DNA Methylation in Epigenome-Wide Meta-Analysis of Newborns
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Folic acid is routinely recommended for women trying to conceive to ensure proper fetal development. Mechanisms whereby periconceptional folate influences normal development and disease are poorly understood: epigenetics may be involved. This data represents meta-analysis results from a large epigenomics study to examine the association between maternal plasma folate during pregnancy and epigenome-wide DNA methylation using Illumina's HumanMethyl450 (450K) Beadchip in 1,996 newborns from two European cohorts. Results for all CpGs analyzed (419,905) are provided.
