6,8) We then searched in the region near Sarcoglycan epsilon (Sgce), the first imprinted gene
identified in this region.
But in imprinted gene
although there are two copies of one gene it means that the person is haploid, and this is the reason of high sensitivity of imprinted genes
to different changes and mutation.
Thus, the aberrant expression of imprinted gene
appears to be the result of complex effects.
Identification of Grf1 on mouse chromosome 9 as an imprinted gene
The allelic expression of an imprinted gene
depends upon whether it resided in a male or female the previous generation.
An imprinted gene
p57KIP2 is mutated in Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome.
Primers for human imprinted genes
were designed with the use of Epidesigner software (Sequenom) to amplify approximately 400-600 bp of the imprinted gene
One typical imprinted gene
, insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2), has been shown to influence body composition in swine (Jeon et al.
MEG3 is an imprinted gene
(paternal allele silenced, maternal allele expressed) that encodes a long noncoding RNA implicated in tumorigenesis (Benetatos et al.
The study found that, while the patterns of DNA methylation required to maintain imprinted gene
silencing were stable in all of the somatic tissues, surprisingly, frequent aberrations in the patterns of DNA methylation existed in imprinted genes
in the stem cells.
This gene normally expresses from the paternally inherited chromosome and is an imprinted gene
on chromosome 9 associated with post-natal growth," Kono added.
