Fig A: This chart illustrates the influences of traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) on cg23602092 methylation and the associ-ation between cg23602092 methylation and asthma. Control subjects appear as solid triangles and asthmatic patients appear as open circles. The solid line shows the relationship between TRAP exposure (current ECAT value) and methylation for control subjects. The dashed line shows the relationship for asthmatic patients.
