Description:

Absence of expression in parthenogenetic sheep fetuses suggests paternal expression (Feil R et al, 1998). PEG1 isoform 2 expression in day 21 parthenogenetic fetuses was 0.04-fold that of control fetuses indicating predominant paternal expression. In parthenogenetic chorioallantois PEG1 isoforms 1 and 2 expression levels were 0.02 and 0.03-fold that of controls (Thurston A et al 2008).
