  1. The first CpG is for males and the remaining three CpGs are for females. The indirect effects of CpGs in IoW and ALSPAC cohort in the same direction are highlighted in bold font.
  2. aFor the analyses in IoW, the path analyses were adjusted for second-hand smoking status at 1, 2 and 4 years, socio-economic status (SES), active smoking status at 18 years, age of pubertal events (age at onset of voice deepening for males and age at onset of menarche for females)
  3. bAnalyses of ALSPAC used similar covariates: active smoking status at 17 years, socio-economic status (SES) and pubertal events
