Genomic imprinting of a human apoptosis gene homologue, TSSC3.


Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic modification of the gamete or zygote leading to parental origin-specific gene expression in somatic cells of the offspring. We have previously identified a cluster of imprinted genes on human chromosome 11p15.5, a region involved in Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, Wilms' tumor, and ovarian, breast, and lung cancer. Here we… (More)
