Taxon:

Mouse

Gene:

Zim2

Chromosome:

07

Location:

06.5 cM, A2-B1, proximal

Description:

Zim2 (imprinted zinc finger gene 2) shows predominant maternal expression in the brain and in 9.5 dpc embryos, but biallelic expression in the testes (Kim J et al, 2004).
Note that human ZIM2 shows paternal expression: the difference is attributable to the insertion of Zim1 between mouse Peg3 and Zim2 (Kim J et al, 2004).
