  1. The table shows the expression of the eleven MBD genes in major tissues as detected by Northern blot. Empty spaces denote lacking information for that tissue. (+) indicates very low or doubtful expression, – no expression. a) [44, 51]b) [27] for these genes, comprehensive expression data was only available from mouse. c) [22] Expression in additional tissues has been reported. d) [46] Expression in additional tissues has been reported. e) [52] SETDB1 was originally called KIAA0067. f) Northern blot results of this study. g) [45] and northern blot results of this study
