Example sentences for: imprinted

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

  • Two other genes, Cars and Nap1l4 , lie between the strongly imprinted gene cluster regulated by this DMR and the

  • The Cars gene is not functionally imprinted, and the Nap1l4 gene shows a weak expression bias in some mouse tissues, but not in several human tissues examined to date [ 4 5 ] . The Obph1 gene, which shows a strong allelic bias in mRNA expression in the placenta, but not in other tissues, is located upstream of Tnfrh1 . Since assessment of allelic bias in the placenta is complicated by the presence of maternal cells, it is not known with certainty whether Obph1 is imprinted.

  • Cooperative cosuppression between bona fide imprinted E82' and a naive L91 locus was again detected in the F2 progeny (Table 2).

  • Poe, for example, used repetition in his poem The Bells to convey to the reader a sense of actually hearing the tolling of the bells, as though the sounds themselves were imprinted on the page.

  • 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.
