NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Both genetic and environmental factors influence imprinting at a differentially methylated noncoding RNA gene, according to a new study.

Genomic imprinting, a type of allele-specific DNA methylation, is typically thought to be determined by parental origin. But, previous work found a unique pattern of DNA methylation at the noncoding nc886 gene: it exhibited allele-specific DNA methylation in about 75 percent of people, but is unmethylated in about 25 percent of people.
