Taxon:

Sheep

Gene:

H19

Chromosome:

21

Location:

21q21-qter

Description:

H19 is overexpressed in sheep gynogenetic allantoic and trophoblastic tissue, suggesting maternal expression (Hagemann LJ et al, 1998).
Levels of H19 expression was between 1.6-2.8-fold (Young LE et al, 2003) and 4.1-fold (Thurston A et al 2008) higher in day 21-25 parthenogenetic fetuses than in the control samples, suggesting that H19 is predominantly expressed from the maternal allele in sheep. Expression was 2.8-fold higher in parthenogenetic chorioallantois than in control (Thurston A et al 2008).
