The Kinship Theory of Genomic Imprinting
TLDR
This work has shown that at autosomal loci subject to random X inactivation, the process is predicted to lead to quantitative differences of expression between maternal and paternal alleles but not to complete silencing of one allele. Expand
EPIGENETIC REGULATION OF CELLULAR MEMORY BY THE POLYCOMB AND TRITHORAX GROUP PROTEINS
■ Abstract During the development of multicellular organisms, cells become different from one another by changing their genetic program in response to transient stimuli. Long after the stimulus isExpand
Genomic imprinting in endosperm : its effect on seed development in crosses between species, and between different ploidies of the same species, and its implications for the evolution of apomixis
TLDR
This paper’s purpose is to show that imprinting phenomena in endosperm can provide a coherent explanation of some failures of experimental crosses, and of the prevalence of pseudogamy among apomictic angiosperms. Expand
Genomic imprinting in mammalian development: a parental tug-of-war.
TLDR
This work presents an hypothesis that accounts for many of the observed effects of imprinting in mammals and relates them to similar observations in plants and has implications for studies of X-chromosome inactivation and a range of human diseases. Expand
High-Resolution Analysis of Parent-of-Origin Allelic Expression in the Mouse Brain
TLDR
A genome-wide characterization of imprinting in the mouse embryonic and adult brain uncovered parent-of-origin allelic effects of more than 1300 loci and identified parental bias in the expression of individual genes and of specific transcript isoforms, with differences between brain regions. Expand
Parent-Specific Gene Expression and the Triploid Endosperm
TLDR
The polyploid-vigor explanation does not explain why genome doubling should occur in the female gametophyte before fertilization, particularly given that endosperm cells often increase their ploidy by other means after fertilization. Expand
Phylogeny of Agrodiaetus Hübner 1822 (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) inferred from mtDNA sequences of COI and COII and nuclear sequences of EF1-alpha: karyotype diversification and species radiation.
TLDR
The authors' data indicate that Agrodiaetus is monophyletic, and representatives of the genus Polyommatus (sensu stricto) are the closest relatives. Expand
On Limits to Seed Production
TLDR
This model indicates that seed production could be expected to respond to a decrease in pollen supply but not to an increase, and illustrates the economic principle that internal resources are optimally allocated among competing processes when each resource limits all processes to the same degree. Expand
Deformation and exhumation in Timor: Distinct stages of a young orogeny
Abstract Timor Island, in the Outer Banda Arc, bordering the Timor Sea, preserves the orogenic product of an arc–continent collision between the Australian Plate and the Banda Arc that commencedExpand
Carbonate pelagites in the post-Gondwana succession (Cretaceous – Neogene) of East Timor
In East Timor the upper parts of the Permian to Middle Jurassic Gondwana Megasequence are structurally juxtaposed against indurated carbonate pelagites of Early Cretaceous (Aptian) to early LateExpand
