Genomic imprinting is a developmentally regulated epigenetic phenomenon. The majority of imprinted genes only show parent-of-origin specific expression in a subset of tissues or at defined developmental stages. In some cases, imprinted expression is controlled by an imprinted macro non-coding RNA (ncRNA) whose expression pattern and repressive activity does not necessarily correlate with that of the genes whose imprinted expression it controls. This suggests that developmentally regulated… CONTINUE READING
