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.

  • This element, which is ~350 kb distant from Tnfrh1 , is essential in cis for the imprinting of at least 4 genes, Kcnq1 , Cdkn1c , Slc22a1l and Ipl/Tssc3 ( [ 21 22 23 ] and M. Higgins, personal communication).

  • Each of these subdomains is regulated by a distinct imprinting control element.

  • 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.

  • 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.
