The adjacent genes, insulin-like growth factor 2 (Igf2) and H19, are imprinted in both mouse and human. While Igf2 is expressed from the paternal allele, H19 is transcribed exclusively from the maternal allele. To explore the underlying mechanism of Igf2 and H19 imprinting, we studied the effect of DNA demethylation on allelic expression by injecting mice(More)
MicroRNAs regulate eukaryotic gene expression upon pairing onto target mRNAs. This targeting is influenced by the complementarity between the microRNA "seed" sequence at its 5' end and the seed-matching sequences in the mRNA. Here, we assess the efficiency and specificity of 8-mer locked nucleic acid (LNA)-modified oligonucleotides raised against the seeds(More)
