The mouse insulin-like growth factor type 2 receptor (Igf2r) is imprinted and expressed exclusively from the maternally inherited chromosome. To investigate whether methylation could function as the imprinting signal, we have cloned 130 kb from the Igf2r locus and searched for sequences methylated in a parental-specific manner. Two regions have been identified: region 1 contains the start of transcription and is methylated only on the silent paternal chromosome; region 2 is contained in an… CONTINUE READING
