Inheritance of ribosomal gene activity and level of DNA methylation of individual gene clusters in a three generation family


Ribosomal gene activity and levels of DNA methylation were investigated by cytochemical and immunological methods in the nucleolar organizer regions (NORs) of individually recognised acrocentric chromosomes. Mendelian inheritance of ribosomal gene activity in a three generation family was demonstrated, together with consistent behaviour of individual gene… (More)
