Description:

Mouse body size. In crosses between Peromyscus polionotus (the old field mouse, monogamous) vs P. maniculatus (deer mouse, polygamous) the size of the offspring depended on direction of cross (Dawson WD, Evolution 1965;19:44-55). Although P. polionotus imprints Igf2, Peg3, Mest, Snrpn, Igf2r, H19, Mash2 and Grb10, imprinting of these genes is disrupted in the hybrids (Vrana PB et al, 1998).
