constitutional germinal mutation      
promoter mutated in skewed X inactivation and the choice of X chromosome inactivation reflects stabilization of a higher order chromatin conformation impinging on the CTCF-XIST promoter complex
tumoral     --other  
aberrantly demethylated in testicular germ cell tumor and in male-derived plasma
tumoral     --over  
by demethylation in aggressive prostate cancer
