Example sentences for: imprinting

How can you use “imprinting” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • M6P/IGF2R is normally imprinted in mice with only the maternal copy of the gene being expressed [ 41 ] . In contrast, both copies of the M6P/IGF2R are expressed in humans because genomic imprinting at this locus was lost in the primate lineage approximately 75 million years ago [ 42 ] . Importantly, restoration of biallelic M6P/IGF2R expression in mice results in a marked reduction in offspring weight late in embryonic development that persists into adulthood [ 43 ] . This demonstrates that M6P/IGF2R allelic loss or haploid insufficiency markedly enhances cell proliferation and/or survival during fetal development.

  • This can lead to a condition called imprinting, where the baby grows up thinking it is a people instead of a duck.

  • Tnfrh1 and Tnfrh2 lie ~350 kb distant from the KvDMR1 'imprinting center'.

  • The bias in fetal liver must reflect parental imprinting of Tnfrh1 , but based on the information from Northern blotting and ISH, the pattern seen in the placental cDNAs in these experiments reflects expression from maternal cells, not imprinting.

  • Yet, these data fall short of proving aspect (b) of the imprinting relay because, surprisingly, the combination of naive L91 and E82 loci also caused non-linear gene dosage effects that could result in the heritable trans-silencing of the E82 locus in at least one instance.
