The article focuses on the result of the study regarding the comparison of gene expression in three human conditions. It mentions that the study was done to almost 5000 genes which was assayed in the mouse models and that changed significantly between normal and disease conditions in human. The result of the study shows that there was no correlation between human conditios and the mouse models.

    In recent years in silico analysis of common laboratory mice has been introduced and subsequently applied, in slightly different ways, as a methodology for gene mapping. Previously we have demonstrated some limitation of the methodology due to sporadic genetic correlations across the genome....

    Objective:The gene TSPAN8 was recently identified in a genome-wide association study as the most likely causal gene in a locus that was correlated with the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in northern European individuals. To assess whether Tspan8 is the actual T2D-causal gene in this locus, we...

    This article examines the role of a G-rich direct repeat element [(G)GGGGTATA]32, in imprinting at the insulin-like growth factor 2 (Igf2) genes and H19 loci. Genomic imprinting is a mammalian epigenetic system that determines the parent-of-origin dependent or monoallelic expression of a subset...

However, while genetargeting techniques have allowed for the identification of...
