The variety of molecules nomena typically involve stable silencing involved, and the requirement for active of epigeetics gene or a gene regulatory element, or maintenance of epigenetic states, creates an equilibrium between silent and active the potential for errors on a large scale.
The vaguely somitic patterning of the mottled patches suggests that the epigenetic state of Avy is set early in embryonic development.

When epigenetic errors – or epimutations – activate or inactivate a critical gene, they may cause disease.
Some individuals carry a germline epimutation that affects all of their cells, or most cells ffollower some cells have reverted to normal—their risk of disease is high.

The rapidly developing molecular characterization of epigenomes, and the new ability to survey epigenetic marks on whole genomes, may answer many questions about the causal role of epigenetics in disease; these answers have the potential to transform our understanding of human disease.
