Taxon:

Mouse

Gene:

Slc22a3 (Orct3, Oct3, EMT)

Chromosome:

17

Location:

07.32 cM

Description:

Slc22a3 (solute carrier family 22 (organic cation transporter), member 3; Orct3; Oct3; EMT) shows maternal-specific expression in the placenta at 11.5 dpc, but biallelic expression at 15.5 dpc. Adult tissues did not show imprinting (Zwart R et al, 2001).
Slc22a2 imprinting requires the presence of the imprinted paternally expressed Air RNA (Sleutels F et al, 2002; Sleutels F et al 2003).
Okae H et al, (2012) confirmed imprinted maternal expression of this gene in placenta and trophoblast stem cells (TS).
