The brain is highly dependent on the environment to function, promoting unique DNA methylation profiles across brain tissues. Little is known about brain epigenomics in any agricultural species, but it has the potential to be influential in phenotypic variation for many economically important traits. Global variation in DNA methylation in the amygdala, bed nucleus of the stria terminalis, cingulate gyrus, dorsal raphe, hippocampus, hypothalamus, nucleus accumbens, periaqueductal gray, and prefrontal cortex was measured in six Red Angus x Simmental steers. Three of these tissues have not been measured for global DNA methylation in any species. View this paper.
