The Dlk1-Dio3 imprinted domain on mouse chromosome 12qF1 contains three paternally expressed protein-coding genes and multiple maternally expressed long or short noncoding RNA genes. All these imprinted genes are regulated by IG-DMR located between Dlk1 and Meg3/Gtl2. Recently, several novel imprinted noncoding RNAs were identified in the intergenic region(More)
The mouse delta-like homolog 1 and type III iodothyronine deiodinase (Dlk1-Dio3) imprinted domain contains three known paternally methylated differentially methylated regions (DMRs): intergenic DMR (IG-DMR), maternally expressed 3-DMR (Gtl2-DMR), and Dlk1-DMR. Here, we report the first maternally methylated DMR, CpG island 2 (CGI-2), is located(More)
Imprinted genes are expressed monoallelically depending on their parental origin, and play important roles in the regulation of fetal growth, development, and postnatal behavior. Most genes known to be imprinted have been identified and studied in the human and the mouse. However, there are only a small number of reported imprinted genes in pigs. Therefore,(More)
