  1. 1. CTCF and Epigenetic Regulation of the H19/Igf2 Locus

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Vinod Pant; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Imprinting; Chromatin; H19; Igf2; CTCF; Insulator; methylation; Utvecklingsbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Developmental biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : An overall coordination between the expressions of genes is required for the proper development of an individual. Although most genes are expressed from both the constituent alleles of the genome, a small subset of autosomal genes are preferentially expressed from only one of the parental alleles, a phenomenon known as genomic imprinting.

  2. 2. Functional characterization of the biological significance of the ZBED6/ZC3H11A locus in placental mammals

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Shady Younis; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ZBED6; IGF2; ZC3H11A; Muscle development; Transcriptome analysis; CRISPR Cas9; mRNA export; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics; Bioinformatik; Bioinformatics;

    Abstract : The recent advances in molecular and computational biology have made possible the study of complicated transcriptional regulatory networks that control a wide range of biological processes and phenotypic traits. In this thesis, several approaches were combined including next generation sequencing, gene expression profiling, chromatin and RNA immunoprecipitation, bioinformatics and genome editing methods in order to characterize the biological significance of the ZBED6 and ZC3H11A genes.

  3. 3. Functional Studies of Genes Associated with Muscle Growth in Pigs and Hair Greying in Horses

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lin Jiang; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; QTN; muscle development; IGF2; ZBED6; RNA-seq; ChIP-seq; myoblasts; pancreatic beta cells; Grey horse; melanoma; MITF; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Domestic animals have become very different from their wild ancestors during domestication and animal breeding. This provides a good model to unravel the molecular mechanisms underlying phenotypic variation. In my thesis I have studied genes affecting two important traits, leanness in pigs and hair greying-associated melanoma in horses. READ MORE

  4. 4. Epigenetic Regulation and Reprogramming of the H19 Imprinting Control Region

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Piero Mariano; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Imprinting; chromatin; H19; Igf2; CTCF; Insulator; methylation; Boris; Utvecklingsbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Developmental biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : The development of a new individual from the fertilized oocyte can ultimately be seen as the consequence of the establishment and maintenance of specific patterns of gene expression. Although regulation of gene activity occurs at different levels, cellular specialization and differentiation are the results of developmental cues that essentially take place at the transcriptional level.

  5. 5. Epigenetic Control of Mammalian Development : Studies on an imprinting control region

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Liang Liu; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Epigenetic; Genomic imprinting; DNA methylation; Igf2; H19; Insulator; CTCF; Imprinting control region; Utvecklingsbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Developmental biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Utvecklingsbiologi; zoologisk utvecklingsbiologi; Animal Development;

    Abstract : A subset of autosomal genes is preferentially or exclusively expressed from one of the parental alleles. This phenomenon, termed genomic imprinting, is highlighted by the neighboring Igf2 and H19 genes, which are monoallelically expressed on opposite parental chromosomes. These features are governed by a 2. READ MORE
