Nanog positively regulates Zfp57 expression in mouse embryonic stem cells.
Kanazawa, Japan. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, Dec 2014
Zinc finger protein 57 (Zfp57) is specifically expressed in self-renewing ES cells and its expression level is reduced upon ES cell differentiation, suggesting that expression of this transcription factor is regulated by core transcription factors.
[The roles of maternal-effect proteins in the maintenance of genomic imprints].
Changchun, China. In Yi Chuan, Oct 2014
In order to obtain a better understanding for the mechanism of maternal-effect proteins in the maintenance of genomic imprints, the recent study progress of maternal-effect proteins, such as DPPA3, ZFP57, TRIM28 and DNMT1, are summarized, and the regulation mechanism of these maternal-effect proteins for genomic imprints are discussed.
The specification of imprints in mammals.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Heredity (edinb), Aug 2014
Among the factors involved in this selection, the zinc-finger protein Zfp57 can be regarded as an imprint-specific, sequence-specific DNA binding factor responsible for maintaining methylation at most ICRs.
A familial disorder of altered DNA-methylation.
Kiel, Germany. In J Med Genet, Jun 2014
Sanger sequencing and RT-PCR of imprinting-associated genes (NLRP2, NLRP7, ZFP57, KHDC3L, DNMT1o), exome sequencing and locus-specific, array-based and genome-wide technologies to determine DNA-methylation were performed.
Genes, assisted reproductive technology and trans-illumination.
Birmingham, United Kingdom. In Epigenomics, 2013
Studies of rare human imprinting disorders such as familial hydatidiform mole, Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome and familial transient neonatal diabetes mellitus have enabled the identification of genetic (e.g., mutations in KHDC3L [C6ORF221], NLRP2 [NALP2], NLRP7 [NALP7] and ZFP57) and environmental (assisted reproductive technologies) factors that can disturb the normal trans mechanisms for imprinting establishment and/or maintenance.
