27045445 The article outlines the role of PRDM9 in fertility.
26840484 subspecies-specific degradation of PRDM9 binding sites by meiotic drive, which steadily increases asymmetric PRDM9 binding, has impacts beyond simply changing hotspot positions, and strongly support a direct involvement in hybrid infertility
26833727 Allele C was found to bind a C-specific hot spot with higher affinity than allele A bound A-specific hot spots
26368021 PRDM9 protein variants form functional heteromeric complexes which can bind hotspots sequences. When a heteromeric complex binds at a hotspot of one PRDM9 variant, the other PRDM9 variant, which would otherwise not bind, methylates hotspot nucleosomes
25393762 This depletion of PRDM9 genomic targets is expected to decrease fitness, and thereby to favor new PRDM9 alleles binding different motifs
25001002 Alignment of Neandertal and Denisovan sequences suggests that PRDM9 in archaic hominins was closely related to present-day human alleles that are rare and specific to African populations.
24754746 Results confirm an association between rare variant PRDM9 alleic forms and childhood ALL
24634223 Overexpression of PRDM9 in HEK293 cells also resulted in a significant increase in trimethylated H3K36 and H3K4 further confirming our in vitro observations
23267059 Recombination regulator PRDM9 influences the instability of its own coding sequence in humans.
23222848 We identified PRDM9 as being associated with unusual recombination patterns and discovered a substantial excess of rare allelic forms of PRDM9 in two independent acute lymphoblastic leukemia cohorts.
22643917 observed a increased frequency of PRDM9 variants in parents who transmitted de novo 7q11.23 deletions to their offspring. These data suggest that certain PRDM9 alleles may be associated with an increased susceptibility to recurrent 7q11.23 microdeletions
22162947 discussion of role of PRDM9 in meiotic recombination hotspots; consideration of the structure of the PRDM9 protein [REVIEW]
21750151 Each African-enhanced hotspot is activated by a distinct spectrum of PRDM9 variants, despite the fact that all are predicted to bind the same motif. This differential activation points to complex interactions between the zinc-finger array and hotspots.
20818382 PRDM9 variation strongly influences recombination hot-spot activity and meiotic instability.
20044541 findings implicate the PRDM9 gene in meiotic recombination; involvement of PRDM9, which causes histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation, implies that there is a common mechanism for recombination hotspots in eukaryotes
20044539 results provide a molecular basis for the distribution of meiotic recombination in mammals in which the binding of PRDM9 to specific DNA sequences targets the initiation of recombination at specific locations in the genome
20044538 sequence of exon 12 of PRDM9; human populations exhibit two predominant alleles and multiple minor alleles of Prdm9
20041164 Human coding polymorphism and interspecies evolutionary changes in the PRDM9 gene, was analyzed.
19168450 Our results suggest that mutations in PRDM9 may cause idiopathic infertility in human males.
19168450 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18941885 Results show a possible association between PRDM9 and azoospermia by meiotic arrest.
18941885 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18231586 Evolutionary analysis suggests that human PRDM7 and PRDM9 genes, a pair of close paralogs corresponding to a single mouse gene Prdm9, were generated by a recent gene duplication event after the divergence of the ancestors of human and mouse.
