Taxon:

Human

Gene:

NLRP2 (provisional data)

Chromosome:

19

Location:

19q13.4

Description:

By pyrosequencing analysis, NLRP2 (NLR family, pyrin domain containing 2) showed subtle preferential expression of the maternal allele in 5 of 8 placentas, and allelic imbalance in the heart and kidney from two fetuses (Bjornsson HT et al, 2008).
Note: Expression studies in the placenta carry the risk that preferential maternal expression reflects maternal decidual contamination of the specimen. Data from two somatic issues are insufficient to demonstrate imprinting.
