Parent-of-origin transmission of thrombophilic alleles to intrauterine growth-restricted newborns and transmission-ratio distortion in unaffected newborns.

Abstract

Findings on the role of thrombophilic polymorphisms in adverse pregnancy outcomes, particularly intrauterine growth restriction, are inconsistent. Such inconsistencies may be partly due to two types of effects which have not been considered before with regard to thrombophilic genes: parent-of-origin effects (imprinting) and transmission-ratio distortion… (More)
