    In the current study, we tested the in vivo effects of Yy1 gene dosage on the Peg3 imprinted domain with various breeding schemes utilizing two sets of mutant alleles. The results indicated that a half dosage of Yy1 coincides with the up-regulation of Peg3 and Zim1, suggesting a repressor role...

    The mammalian Peg3 domain harbors more than 20 evolutionarily conserved regions (ECRs) that are spread over the 250-kb genomic interval. The majority of these ECRs are marked with two histone modifications, H3K4me1 and H3K27ac, suggesting potential roles as distant regulatory elements for the...

    Many imprinted genes are often epigenetically affected in human cancers due to their functional linkage to insulin and insulin-like growth factor signaling pathways. Thus, the current study systematically characterized the epigenetic instability of imprinted genes in multiple human cancers....

    Peg3 is an imprinted gene exclusively expressed from the paternal allele. It encodes a C2H2 type zinc-finger protein and is involved in maternal behavior. It is important for TNF-NFkB signaling and p53-mediated apoptosis. To investigate the imprinting mechanism and gene expression of Peg3 and...

    To gain a better understanding of the methylation imprinting changes associated with heat stress in early development, we used bisulfite sequencing and bisulfite restriction analysis to examine the DNA methylation status of imprinted genes in early embryos (blastocysts). The paternal imprinted...

    Mutations in imprinted genes or their imprint control regions (ICRs) produce changes in imprinted gene expression and distinct abnormalities in placental structure, indicating the importance of genomic imprinting to placental development. We have recently shown that a very broad spectrum of...

    In this work, the reactivity between the polymers of PLA/PEgAA blend and the effect of PEgAA content on the properties and morphology of PLA was evaluated. The blends containing 5, 10 and 15% (wt) of PEgAA were prepared by extrusion followed by injection molding and characterized by FTIR, DSC,...

    Peg10 is a maternally imprinted gene located in the imprinted domain of human chromosome 7q21 and mouse proximal chromosome 6. It is predominantly expressed in, and participates in the formation of, the placenta. Moreover, Peg10 is overexpressed in hepatocellular carcinoma, and is involved in...
