Example sentences for: imprinting

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

  • The simplest explanation for our finding of weak but consistent functional imprinting of Tnfrh1 , with relative hyper-expression from the maternal allele, is that the KvDMR1 control element exerts distance-dependent effects.

  • Paramutable maize alleles of b1 and pl1 are highly effective in relaying such an imprint [ 24 25 ] (also see [ 3 ] ), whereas other loci, although sensitive to imprinting, are less effective [ 26 ] or apparently ineffective [ 8 ] in relaying the imprint to secondary targets.

  • This contrasts with the lack of conservation of Tnfrh1 , and the species-specific imprinting of at least one placental lactogen gene [ 20 ] . Of more immediate interest is the biological function of Tnfrh1 , which will need to be determined by knockout experiments.

  • These two elements control, respectively, the allele-specific expression of the H19/Igf2/Ins2 gene cluster, and the second gene cluster containing Kcnq1, the antisense transcript Kcnq1ot1, p57 Kip 2/ Cdkn1c, Slc22a1l, Ipl/Tssc3 and possibly additional genes [ 1 2 ] . There is good evidence assigning one border of the overall imprinted region to the DNA immediately downstream of H19 [ 3 ] . However, the other border, which must lie upstream of Ipl is less well-defined [ 4 ] . Here we show evidence for weak imprinting of a gene, Tnfrh1 , which is located upstream of

  • As mentioned above, additional work will be needed to determine whether the results in the placenta reflect imprinting of Obph1 , or alternatively indicate expression from maternal cells.
