Significance of PTMs SNRPN-methylation is used to detect uniparental disomy of chromosome 15.decreased levels of the maternal allele methylation in the SNRPN DMR has been observed in children conceived by assisted reproductive technologies (ART), suggesting that the SNRPN methylation pattern is affected by in vitro culture systems.DMR methylation levels are found to be diminished in embryonic tissues in abnormal pregnancy.
Additional Comments Artificial reproductive techniques, such as prolonged in vitro culture and SCNT, lead to abnormal reprogramming of imprinting of SNRPN gene by altering methylation levels at this locus.
