H19 is an imprinted maternally expressed gene, which is not translated to protein and functions as an RNA molecule. It is closely related to the oppositely imprinted paternally expressed insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF-2). While the biological function of H19 is not understood IGF-2 is a growth factor that plays a role in human follicular and endometrial differentiation. We examined the expression of H19 in the endometrium and ovary during the menstrual cycle by in situ hybridization applied… CONTINUE READING
