No place like home: New theory for how salmon, sea turtles find their birthplace

... to protected areas where we would like them to nest," Lohmann said, noting the animals' endangered status. "It might also be possible to use magnetic imprinting to help re-establish salmon populations in rivers where the original population has been wiped out." ...

Environmental epigenetics has potential for preventing and treating disease

... In addition, mutations that occur in non-imprinted regions can influence the regulation of imprinted genes. The authors previously demonstrated that imprinting evolved anywhere from 230 to 150 million years ago, arising in mammals with the evolution of the placenta. They note that the expression of imprinted ...

Human embryonic stem cells remain embryonic because of epigenetic factors

... proteins are decorated with different marks, which can affect the various activities of the modified DNA such as transcription, gene silencing, imprinting and replication. Such marks key roles in the process of cellular differentiation, allowing cells to maintain different characteristics despite ...

Scientists find clue to mechanisms of gene signaling and regulation
