Fig. 4: Correlations of DNA methylation density in OXTR with perinatal depression, attachment style, and childhood trauma.

From: Epigenetic signatures of attachment insecurity and childhood adversity provide evidence for role transition in the pathogenesis of perinatal depression

Fig. 4

(N = 54) Methylation patterns associated with insecure attachment style (both anxious and avoidant) show similarity to those in antenatal depression, with the inverse pattern observed in association with secure attachment. Childhood trauma shows a distinct pattern of methylation within OXTR.
