Is it possible to see the phenotype of the imprinted genes we got from our parents in our children?


Even though both parents contribute equally to the genetic content of their offspring, a developmental process called genomic imprinting sometimes leads to the exclusive expression of specific genes from only one parent. This process was first described in 1984, when two laboratories discovered a mark, or "imprint," that differentiates between certain genes on the maternal and paternal chromosomes and results in the expression of only one copy of those genes in the offspring. The genes in imprinted areas of an organism's genome are expressed depending on the parent of origin. As a result, the inheritance of both the maternal and paternal genes is required for normal development to proceed (McGrath & Solter, 1984; Surani et al., 1984).
