Description:

Preferential maternal expression of GNAS in fetuses and preferential paternal expression in chorioallantois was suggested. Using non-isoform-specific primers, day 21 parthenogenetic fetusus showed 1.7-fold higher expression compared to control fetuses (ie, predominant maternal expression). Differently, day 21 parthenogenetic chorioallantois expression was 0.4-fold that of controls (predominant paternal expression) (Thurston A et al 2008).
