    Laboratory of Developmental Genetics and Imprinting, Developmental Genetics Programme, The Babraham Institute, Cambridge CB2 4AT, UK
    Nature 417:945-8. 2002
    ..We propose that the Igf2 gene, and perhaps other imprinted genes, control both the placental supply of, and the genetic demand for, maternal nutrients to the mammalian fetus...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:19219-24. 2005
    ..Thus, crosstalk between an imprinted growth demand gene (Igf2) and placental supply transporter genes (Slc38a4, Slc38a2, and Slc2a3) may be a component of the genetic control of nutrient supply and demand during mammalian development...

    J Physiol 547:35-44. 2003
    ..These data and hypotheses are important, as deregulation of supply and demand affects fetal growth and has long term consequences for health in mammals both in the neonatal period and, as a result of fetal programming, in adulthood...

    Emily Angiolini
    Laboratory of Developmental Genetics and Imprinting, The Babraham Institute, Babraham Research Campus, Cambridge, UK
    FASEB J 25:1737-45. 2011
    ..Our findings are indicative of fetal-placental signaling mechanisms that limit total demand for maternal nutrients...

    Hum Mol Genet 12:295-305. 2003
    ..These observations are likely to be relevant to other gene clusters in which epigenetic regulation plays a role, and in pathological situations in which epigenetic regulation is disrupted...
