Taxon:

Pig

Gene:

PLAGL1

Chromosome:

01

Location:

22 Mb

Description:

PLAGL1 was paternally expressed in all tissues tested (heart, liver, spleen, lung, kidney, stomach, small intestine, skeletal muscle, fat, uterus, and ovary) in Meishan and Large White crosses (Zhang FW et al, 2007 ).

Lack of PLAGL1 expression in parthenogenetic fetuses inferred paternal expression (Bischoff SR et al, 2009). Novel tissue-specific isoforms were also identified, suggesting tissue-specific imprinting.
