Description:

Igf2 is paternally expressed in Monodelphis domestica, a placental South American opossum (O’Neill MJ et al, 2000). In the monotreme mammal, the echidna, no evidence of imprinted expression was observed in the spleen, intestine, kidney or liver (Killian JK et al, 2001). In the tammar wallaby, monoallelic expression was found in nine individuals in several tissues, but only biased expression was observed in embryo head tissue and yolk sac placentas. Paternal expression was confirmed for two individuals (Suzuki S et al, 2005).
