2021 OCT 12 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Current study results on nucleoproteins have been published. According to news reporting from Harbin, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "In diploid eukaryotic organisms, both alleles of each autosomal gene are usually assumed to be simultaneously expressed at similar levels. However, some genes can be expressed preferentially or strictly from a single allele, a process known as monoallelic expression."

Our news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Harbin Institute of Technology: "Classic monoallelic expression of X-chromosome-linked genes, olfactory receptor genes and developmentally imprinted genes is the result of epigenetic modifications. Genetic-origin-dependent monoallelic expression, however, is caused by cis-regulatory differences between the alleles. There is a paucity of systematic study to investigate these phenomena...
