Epigenetic programming of differential gene expression in development and evolution.

Abstract

This review covers data on changing patterns of DNA methylation and the regulation of gene expression in mouse embryonic development. Global demethylation occurs from the eight-cell stage to the blastocyst stage in preimplantation embryos, and global de novo methylation begins at implantation. We have used X-chromosome inactivation in female embryos as a… (More)
