Diseases of genetic imprinting in man

Diseases of genetic imprinting in man

Voprosy Meditsinskoi Khimii 43(5): 356-365

Genetic imprinting is an epigenetic phenomenon by which the parental germline confers a sex-specific mark on the some chromosomal regions which provide for monoallelic gene expression in the offspring. This paper examine the relation of genetic imprinting with human diseases. Collection of data on uniparental disomy cases in human diseases and early embryonic lethality, identification intragenic deletions and point mutations in patients who have some syndromes due to a parental imprint switch failure is providing our understanding of phenomenon of genetic imprinting and have important clinical implications.
