  1. Column 1 reports the explanatory variables used to model gene responsiveness. Column 2 indicates the source of the data (reference). Columns 3 and 4 report the different statistics obtained with the linear regression. n.r., not reported; n.d., not determined. a, statistics for methylation variable. b, statistics for TATA-box variable. Column 5 shows the coefficients from the linear regression analysis.
