Epigenetic changes in gene expression: focus on "The liver X-receptor gene promoter is hypermethylated in a mouse model of prenatal protein restriction".


THE TERM EPIGENETICS WAS FIRST coined in 1942 by Waddington (20) to describe the interaction of genes with their environment during development that gives rise to a phenotype. Today, the term epigenetics is used when describing a phenotype that occurs in a manner outside conventional genetic interactions and refers to stable and heritable alterations in… (More)
